Scroll down for all of our predictions, poll and stats for the SJK v AC Oulu game (inc. the best betting odds).
SJK will want to continue from where they left off last time out with the 0-1 Veikkausliiga victory over Ilves.
In that match, SJK managed 49% possession and 14 shots at goal with 4 on target. The scorer for SJK was Jake Jervis (6'). On the other side, Ilves got 9 shots at goal with 5 on target.
A common feature of recent SJK games is the number of nil scores.
From their previous 6 clashes leading up to this one, in 5 of them a wager on BTTS would've been a loser.
Coming into this clash, SJK have not been beaten in their last 2 home league matches.
AC Oulu will come into the clash following on from a 2-1 Veikkausliiga win with the eclipse of HJK in their previous game.
For AC Oulu, goals were scored by Dennis Salanović (8') and Lucky Opara (76'). Atomu Tanaka (74') scored for HJK.
The stats don’t lie, and AC Oulu have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, letting opponents get 8 goals overall. Defensively, Oulu just haven’t been too solid at all. We will find out whether or not that trend will end up being continued on into this next match.

Team News: SJK
SJK boss Jani Honkavaara has no fitness worries whatsoever before this clash owing to a completely injury-free squad available for selection.
Team News: AC Oulu
Due to a fully healthy squad available to select from, AC Oulu boss Jyrki Ahola has no fitness worries to speak of coming into this game.
We believe that SJK should convert a lot of goal-scoring opportunities.
However, AC Oulu will not find it easy to score a goal of their own although we do think it’s probable that they will be managing to get on the scoresheet, too.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a fairly comfortable 3-1 winning margin for SJK at full-time.
