Best football tips for today
The Finnish champions HJK host VPS at the Bolt Arena in a game from the 14th round of the Veikkausliiga. Stay with us and our best football tips for today. Let’s go!
Last year HJK triumphed with the league title, but now they are not in the best position they could be. The champions are second in the standings and 6 points behind the leader KuPS. This means that HJK must improve their consistency if they want to keep their chances of defending the crown.
Surely the consistency is HJK’s main problem right now. The club is without a win in its last four matches – two draws and two defeats. They need to do better and this next game is a great opportunity for this.
During the week HJK had some positive emotions, though. They reached the second qualifying round of the Champions League despite losing against Rigas FS. Now we should see if this European success will inspire them to do better in the Veikkausliiga as well.
VPS approach this trip to Helsinki from 8th place in the standings. So far their record shows 5 wins, 1 draw and 7 defeats. They also lost two of their last three matches which raises some doubts about their current shape.
In the previous round VPS hosted Mariehamn at home, but suffered a 1-3 defeat at the Elisa Stadion. Aleksi Pahkasalo scored for the hosts, but at the end the visitors just did much better. VPS must play much better against the champion if they want to avoid another defeat on Saturday.
That’s the best football tips for today for the Finnish Veikkausliiga clash between HJK and VPS. The hosts are aiming to reach the top again, but they need a better consistency if they want to do it. This next game is a perfect opportunity to start.
