Honka vs TPS
Date: Saturday, 21 July 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Tapiolan Urheilupuisto (Espoo).
In the 20th round of Finnish Veikkausliiga, Honka are going to host TPS on Saturday afternoon.
Honka hosts are currently sitting on the 3rd spot and they are fighting for the place in the Europa League qualifiers next season. They’ve been defeated only three times so far, however their recent form is not so stable. In the last five occasions, Borjas Martin and the lads managed to celebrate only two victories.
The hosts are one of the most efficient sides in the competition, but they should improve their defensive work a bit. They lost only once when playing in front of the home crowd and that happened in their last match at their ground.
TPS managed to improve a bit lately and with two victories from the last five rounds they escaped the relegation zone, however, they are not safe yet as Mariehamn are just one point behind them.
Mika Laurikainen’s side has severe problems in converting their chances into goals as they are the most inefficient team in the competition.
The visitors are playing very bad at away grounds and they managed to pick up just five points from nine outings.
Honka vs TPS: Head-to-head
These two sides have been producing a lot of draw matches in their encounters lately and in the last eight occasions, the only team managing to book a win was TPS who did that twice. Their last four clashes in a row finished with at most two goals in total in the match.
Honka vs TPS: Prediction
Although they are searching for a win since 2014, home side should be able to keep their 3rd place intact with a victory from this one. Honka are playing very well at home ground and since TPS are hardly managing to win something from their away matches, the hosts should book another three valuable points.
Honka’s home matches have been pretty efficient so far, while TPS are conceding a lot when it comes to playing away from home. Despite their tradition of low scoring matches, in this on we are expecting to see at least three goals.
Honka vs TPS: Bet Tips
Home win @ 1.57
Over 2.5 FT @ 2.00.
