Honka vs PS Kemi
Finland – Veikkausliiga
Date: Monday, 17 September 2018
Kick-Off at 16:30 UK
Venue: Tapiolan Urheilupuisto (Esbo)
Honka have been quite unpredictable recently and they’ve dropped out of the Veikkausliiga top 3 for it but they have bounced back to the winning ways on Thursday and host PS Kemi in an attempt to build on such success, connecting two wins in a row for the first time since late June.
They still sit just five points behind the 2nd placed RoPS and the loss to the 2nd placed rivals was their only one in five outings, as they beat TPS, Lahti, and Ilves with just a goalless draw at Mariehamn seen along the way. Vesa Vasara’s men will now surely be very confident once again and it should prove a tough task to hold them off.
PS Kemi have been far from their best shape too and they sit rock-bottomed at this point, coming into the match just days after the Friday’s clash against RoPS – as they look for a return to the winning ways after five games in a row. Kings have seen a 4-1 thrashing at TPS, which was their last trip, and this could be even more worrying ahead of the trip to Tapiolan Urheilupuisto!
Honka vs PS Kemi: Head-to-head
- Interestingly, the sides have met for head-to-head clashes just twice beforehand.
- Honka have bagged a home win in May and a point in a 1-1 draw at Sauvosaaren urheilupuisto in July.
- We’ve seen goals on both ends on both of the occasions, with a total of five goals in the process.
Honka vs PS Kemi: Prediction
We will now back Honka to secure all three points in front of the home crowd once again, building on solid performances seen at this ground earlier and outclassing the rock-bottomed visitors. We’ll thus go for a Home win at 2.10, which seems more like a banker bet at this point with many big hitters lumping.
We do believe they’ll have to outgun the rivals once again and we’ll also back a YES on Both teams to score at 1.75, which would be the third such occasion in three head-to-head clashes between the sides. We’ve seen both sides regularly scoring and conceding goals lately and this could be further evidence for such a bet!
Honka vs PS Kemi: Bet Tips
Home win @ 2.10 (11/10)
Both teams to score YES @ 1.75 (3/4).
