With just a single point between the two teams who are battling it out for the top-three finish and a place in Europa League qualifications next summer, we have reasons to expect a nervous affair full of tension on the occasion.

The hosts come into it high on confidence following a demolishing 3-6 victory over Mariehamn ten days ago. It was a rather shocking and very odd result given that Mariehamn defeated Ipa just three days before (1-2 on the road).

Moving forward, Gronvitt had a two-goal cushion back then, but they went on to ship six straight goals and suffer a real disaster in the second half.

Iiro Jarvinen bagged a brace for Ilves back then, while Issa Thiaw also got his name on the scoreline, taking his league tally to five goals.

Ilves vs Honka: Head-to-head

This will only be the third head to head encounter between the two teams.

Both previous matches offered goal fests.

The first one saw Honka pick up a demolishing 4-1 victory on the home patch, while teams shared spoils in a 3-3 draw in the reverse fixture at Tammelan Stadion in Tampere.

Ilves vs Honka: Prediction

We could be in for the continuation of a high-scoring trend in head to head games between these two sides based on Ilves’ recent displays.

Five of last six games Ipa played in Veikkausliiga brought three or more goals and saw them netting at least two.

Given that Honka also play attacking football under Vesa Vasara, backing goals at both ends just has to be the way to go here.

You can back this bet at the 1.75 odds, while the Over 2.5 goals FT pick is paid at 1.95.

As for the outcome, the value definitely goes with Ilves who have been enjoying a scintillating form in the past couple of months.

Jarjjo Wiss’ men won five, drew one and lost one of past seven league outings and they are well worth backing not to lose at home at the odds of 1.61.
