Ilves vs FC Inter Turku
Date: Saturday, 30 June 2018
Kick-Off at 13:00 UK
Venue: Tammelan Stadion (Tampere).
Ilves and FC Inter are going to face each other in the 17th round of Finnish Veikkausliiga on Saturday afternoon. The hosts tied three matches without a defeat and broke their winless record of four straight matches with a victory over SJK in the latest round.
Although they are sitting on the 6th place, the hosts are still competitive for the third place which is just three points away from them. Jarjjo Wiss’ side is playing pretty tight and the crowd is not able to enjoy many goals in their matches.
Inter Turku are playing very variably and it can be said that they have a disappointing season. They picked up just a point in the last three games and are five points ahead of the relegation zone.
It has to be said that Timo Furuholm and the lads have been pretty productive in the front, yet their bad defending prevented them of winning more points.
These two sides are equally successful in their head to head clashes, as they have booked four victories each. Almost all their clashes since 2015 were low scoring ones with at most two goals per match.
A very tricky clash to predict, but as the hosts are in a better form, they should be able to celebrated the victory in front of the home crowd. Ilves should continue their battle for the Europa League spot.
As the hosts have been involved in tight matches, in this one we shouldn’t expect to see many goals. In all their clashes in Tampere the crowd wasn’t able to see more than two goals per game and we expect that to happen once again. Correct score prediction 1-0.
