Last season JJK Jyvaskyla have won the Ykkonen and promoted to the elite division. However, “Ketut” demonstrate unconvincing results at the new level: the side recorded seven points earned, 11 goals for and 26 goals against in 12 matches and, as a result, it is sitting on the last place in the standings of the elite division. The team participated in seven games at away grounds resulting in three draws, four defeats, three points taken and 5-14 goal difference. Last time JJK Jyvaskyla won on the road had been on the 15th of October 2016 and afterwards they forgot the taste of victory across 10 consecutive encounters.
Despite the poor competitive form of the hosting side, they are the reigning Veikkausliiga champions. Consequently, they must break the elite division debutant which show mediocre results on the road and, honestly speaking, is the major outsider of the season in the elite division.
Prediction for the match: Mariehamn to win with -1.0 Asian handicap.
