HIFK vs TPS
Finland – Veikkausliiga
Date: Monday, 10 August 2020
Kick-Off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Bolt Arena (Helsinki).
This will be one of the easiest games that the home team will play this season. They are currently on a four-game unbeaten run with the latest being a win over Haka away from home. If they win this one they could possibly go to third place replacing HJK.
Turun has already fallen to the bottom of the table as expected. The only win for the newbie came against the bottom side Rovaniemi. But they followed it up with another defeat against Honka at home. From seven games they have given away an average of two goals per game.
HIFK vs TPS: Head-to-head (h2h)
- In the only game between these two teams, TPS managed to win 1-0.
- This was in a Suomen Cup fixture held at the home of TPS back in February 2020.
HIFK vs TPS: Prediction
The home team has not been much of an unstoppable force at this ground. From the three home fixtures, they have one win and two defeats. But they are unbeaten away from home with three wins in four games.
At the same time, the newbie is the only team to lose every single one of their home games. With their only win coming against the last team in the table, I do not see them getting all three points in this upcoming tie.
But they cannot be taken for granted as the home side has tasted defeat in all previous head to head games. In the only friendly between them at this ground, Turun won 1-3 back in 2017.
TPS has scored in two recent away games on the trot irrespective of the result. Since the home side has conceded in their entire home matches this year, we can expect the same on Monday too. So I am backing the home team to get a narrow win with both teams getting in the score sheet.
HIFK vs TPS: Betting Tips
The home team to win @ 1.90 (9/10).
