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.

I expect to see them grabbing all 3 points, as they are unbeaten at home against HIFK. One of those stalemates came in the prior round against the same rivals as today by the score of 2-2. Ilves are currently placed first in the league with 37 points and will try to keep it that way. Ilves, commonly known as the Ipa, produced colourful results in recent weeks. Moreover, out of the previous 5 matches that theyve played, they recorded 2 wins, 2 draws, and 1 loss. They were equal in most areas of the game, and the draw comes as a fair outcome to this clash.

Furthermore, in them, they averaged just under 4 goals, and in 3 of the last 5, we saw both teams scoring. Ilves were the dominant side having triumphed in 4 of those matches, and the most recent one ended in a draw. Therefore, those seeking for higher-rewarding wagers can opt for the prospect of a win by the hosts with both teams scoring. Moreover, since the start of 2017, they fought on 5 occasions. The two sides have a long mutual history. In my opinion, this combination brings the optimal balance of risk and lucrative betting odds.

Inconsistency could prove to be costly against the league leaders in the end. They have endured a mixed streak of results at home, alternating between wins and defeats in their last 5 league games. The forthcoming clash is seen as a chance to catch up on the league leaders and I widely expect the Black and Yellows to go full steam on Saturday. The hosts currently sit in fourth place in the standings with 27 points from 16 games.

Ipa were the better side on the pitch, but conceded the first goal and reached the draw just at the end of the game with a goal from a penalty. The team lost as guests of Lahti with 0-1, while the previous weekend played at home against the defending champions HJK. The first six teams in the standings are gathered within three points, but Ilves are still the leaders despite the poor performances in the last two rounds.

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.
