AS Oulu take on the visitors SJK in the round 10 match of Finnish Veikkausliiga. The match will be played on Saturday, May 28th at Raatin stadion (Oulu).
Oulu clearly wants to do better than last season. The White-Blues finished in 11th, penultimate place in 2021. I had to defend my right to play in the Veikkausliiga through play-offs, fortunately, they managed to achieve the desired result with RoPS. And with great difficulty: lost 1-2 on the road, but won at home 2-0. It is clear that they tried to take this lesson into account. Yes, there was a tight start, with 2 points in the first 4 fights. But then they managed to seriously add, gaining 7 points at in 3 rounds. This series was interrupted by 0-3 at home with one of the leaders, KuPS. But, perhaps, a new one begins: Oulu managed to win even on the road with a score of 2-0.

SJK remembers recent successes but cannot repeat it. "Kerho" at the end of 2013 rose to the top division. And he immediately began the “golden” segment: three times in a row he finished in the top three (and, most importantly, in 2015 he was able to take the first championship in history), and also won the League Cup and the Country Cup. But then there was a recession, and only last year they managed to give a good result – they took bronze medals. But at the same time, the new start was not the best - SJK showed rather mediocre results. Having won in the starting round, then the team lost 5 times in a row, and only from mid-May the rise began. The team won against VPS and Mariehamn and shared points with Haka. This allowed at least to rise to the middle of the standings: with 10 points they occupy 8th place.
Last year, SJK won all 3 head-to-heads, both in the national cup and in the championship. This season, the sides have already faced in the League Cup, playing there 2-2. Now SJK is considered the favorite of the pair. But Oulu is in good shape and can at least not lose at home
Prediction for the match: AS Oulu to win with +0.5 handicap (1X).
