Ilves vs HJK
Finland – Veikkausliiga
Date: Saturday, 16 June 2018
Kick-Off at 16:30 UK
Venue: Tammelan Stadion (Tampere).

One of the most interesting matches in the 14th round of Finnish Veikkausliiga is going to be contested between Ilves and HJK. Home side tied two defeats in a row which caused their slight decline on the standings and they are now five points behind the top three. Jarjjo Wiss’ side have some troubles in finding the back of the oppositions’ net as they have scored only 13 goals so far. However, Ilves are playing very well in front of their fans where they haven’t suffered a defeat yet.

HJK are looking very confident this season as they are ten points ahead of the closest rivals. The visitors allowed only two defeats so far and they’ve been especially good at away grounds where they’ve allowed only one point to their hosts. Klauss is on fire this season as he managed to find the back of the net 12 ties in 14 matches.

Ilves vs HJK: Head-to-head

HJK celebrated five victories in the last six occasions when facing these rivals and their last three clashes have been very efficient. In their head to head clashes we cannot see a draw too often as usually one of the sides is able to pick up a win.

Ilves vs HJK: Predictions

HJK are in excellent streak of six victories in a row and they should be able to continue with their excellent performances. Although Ilves are undefeated in front of the home crowd, they will hardly avoid a defeat in this one.

Both sides have been involved in high scoring matches recently and they should be able to continue in the same fashion. Their last two clashes provided us with at least four goals and this match should go over 2.5 margin.
