Today at Seinäjoki, SJK Akatemia welcomes Gnistan on their artificial turf at OmaSp Stadium. Gnistan will be chasing its first win against SJK Akatemia, and in addition to that, they are also looking for the first goal of the season in the net of Seinjoki. They have a significant absence in the offensive line. Out of the squad are Topi Järvinen (18/2), Tommi Jäntti (11/0), and Luca Weckström (10/2), while a flu that is circulating in the team may cause absences even on the day of the match. Since their best players Brazilians Luquinhas (14/3) and Douglas Cae (13/8) left, they completely drop in the form. They are lucky to have a stash of points left over from the first part of the season, so they are practically safe from relegation. On the other hand, the young players of SJK are fighting hard to stay and every point is extremely important. They are in 9th place, with only 1 point from the relegation zone. They also have a game less, so it is clear how important today’s victory would be. They are really good at their artificial turf, with two defeats in the last 6 matches, and there are no problems with injuries and suspensions for this match. In the first game of this season, SJK easily defeated Gnistan (0:4), and considering all the problems of the visiting team and the importance of the game for the hosts, I expect SJK to dominate from the beginning and win this match.
