Our Prediction:

Ilves will win

Ilves – Honka Match Prediction | 15-09-2019 11:30

The fact that theyve won just 1 of the last 7 away games makes me even more confident in my picks for this Tuesday fixture. After a series of great results, their form has taken a turn for the worse. On the other side, HIFK or the Star Chested as they call them in Finland, are on a two-game winless streak. As a result, they dropped in the league standings and now hold the 8th position. It is worth noting that in 4 of their previous 5 endeavours, we saw both teams scoring.

The Ipa, as people call them in Finland, lead the line in the Finnish top flight with 29 points to their name. Despite somewhat slower pace, the visitors still remain one of the strongest sides in the league, especially defensively. They have been pushing strong in recent weeks, however, it appears they are currently experiencing a dip in form. As a result, the gap between them and three more teams including Honka is now only two points. Namely, they only conceded 9 goals while scoring 19 and therefore I expect to see a low-scoring affair on Saturday. Jarkko Wiss troops failed to register a win in their last 2 league matches.

With this in mind, we cannot see this one going down as one for the ages and we are tipping the match to finish with less than 2.5 goals scored. Two sides who have had a pretty solid start to the campaign in the Finnish Veikkausliiga come head to head this Saturday afternoon as FC Honka welcome Ilves Tampere toTapiolan Urheilupuisto. Despite their solid start, both of these sides have built this on the back of a solid defence rather than some open and attacking football.
