HIFK vs VPS: Preview and Predictions

HIFK vs VPS Finnish Veikkausliiga Match Preview 9th August 2017

Finland Veikkausliiga
Date: Wednesday, 9th August 2017
Kick off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Telia 5g -areena.

VPS lost touch with HJK at the top of Veikkausliiga standings after a series of three straight draws.

Can they return to the winning ways this Wednesday when Vepsu travel to Telia 5g –arena for the meeting with the struggling HIFK side?


HIFK will need a miracle to reach the safe zone until the end of the season as the tenth-placed RoPS are currently eight points away.

Nothing suggests better days for Antti Muurinen’s men who lost three and drew one of their last four league outings.

The latest of the failures happened on Friday when Tahtirinnat lost 3-0 to Inter Turku on the road.


VPS are generally enjoying one of the best seasons in the last decade.

Apart from a positive kick off to the new Veikkausliiga campaign, the team led by Petri Vuorinen had a strong run in Europa League where they barely lost the second qualifying round tie with Brondby.

The team has generally been very tough to break down since the very start of the season, but they allowed as many as three goals in Sunday’s home draw with PS Kemi.

HIFK vs VPS: Head to head

VPS lead the tie by a single win, but we have to mention that each of the last three head to head meeting between the two sides ended with less than three goals scored.

We also have to mention that Vepsu won four and drew one of their last five encounters with HIFK.

HIFK vs VPS: Prediction

This is a fantastic occasion for the visitors to bounce back and finally snatch three points to keep the second position in the league standings.

We must see the value in the 11/8 odds offered by the bookies on the away win in this one.
