Tobias Gourlay's on his way to Finland for Thursday's sole Veikkausliiga game
"HIFK lost this fixture 0-2 last season and could be set for another reverse this afternoon"
HIFK v HJK Helsinki
In Peru last night, Ayacucho were held 2-2 by Atletico Grau to leave us empty handed. We're straight back to northern Europe for a crack at Finland this afternoon.
Veikkausliiga leaders HJK Helsinki can go five points clear at the top with a win at fifth-placed HIFK later today. We fancy they can do it.
HJK have won 5/6 on the road this season including all of their most recent four away games. In four of those five successes, the margin of victory was at least a couple of goals.
Hosts HIFK lost this fixture 0-2 last season and could be set for another reverse this afternoon. At the Bolt Areena this term, they have lost 3/5. KuPS, who are currently second in the table, beat them 3-0 here and we'll back the pace setters to also win with something to spare today.
