Finland – Veikkausliiga
Date: Wednesday, 5 August 2020
Kick-off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Tammelan Stadion (Tampere).
Ilves’s winless streak has been extended to the fifth fixture with their 2-2 draw at home with HIFK in their previous league clash. They have lost only twice this season so far and both defeats came on the road, which will be a comfort when hosting RoPS.
Rovaniemi is one of the two teams, the other being Haka, to have won none of their clashes in the campaign so far this season (2D 4L). They are on a two-game losing streak in the schedule, following a 2-3 loss at home against TPS Turku last time out in the league.

- The host has been unbeaten for the past five meetings (2W 3D).
- Their recent three fixtures saw both teams score in the game.
- Their previous encounter resulted in a 1-1 draw at RoPS.
- The visitor hasn’t been successful in their last five visits since 2017.
Ilves vs RoPS Prediction
Ilves has a slightly better record at home from their previous season when compared to the poor away form held by RoPS. From their home grounds advantage, the host might have a chance to create more opportunities in the game.
The home win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters considering the visitors with a winless record in the game. Besides, the guest hasn’t won here in their h2h since 2017.
The host has averaged 1.3 goals in the campaign until now, and their h2h average with the visitors at home has been 2.3 goals. So, the tip for Ilves to score over 1.5 goals will also be a suitable option for the punters in the fixture.
