Ilves vs KuPS
Date: Saturday, 1st July 2017
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Tammelan Stadion.
Can Ilves bounce back after a disappointing 1-0 defeat to RoPS on Monday? They will have a nice chance to do so this Saturday when they are about to host the struggling KuPS side at Tammelan Stadion in the 15th round of Veikkausliiga.
Jarjjo Wiss has completely changed his team’s playing style over the last couple of weeks.
Ilves used to play attacking football at the start of the season, but their last four league outings offered no more than three goals in total.
We can expect the hosts to continue in this fashion and keep the main focus on defending their own net which gave the result in their last home fixture when the team pulled out a 1-0 win over SJK.
KuPS ere off to a promising start to the new campaign, but they are currently on a poor run of five consecutive matches without a victory.
Unlike his colleague on the other side, Jani Honkavaara has huge troubles to find the chemistry in his defensive line since the team has been pretty easy to break down in the most recent period.
The visitors will come in the game after a 1-1 draw with Inter Turku on the road last Monday.
Ilves vs KuPS: Head to head
Ilves have entirely dominated this match-up winning 11 out of 15 head to head matches between the two sides.
Keltamusta will be desperate to end the horrendous streak of nine straight losses to Ilves, but it will be a challenging task according to their current form.
Ilves vs KuPS: Prediction
Ilves will have the home court advantage, a much better head to head record, and they enjoy a better form at this stage of the season.
This is more than enough for us to take the home win as the top betting option at the odds of 11/10.
