Finland – Veikkausliiga
Date: Saturday, 15 August 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Tammelan Stadion (Tampere).
Ilves has been struggling in the league to keep them away from the relegation zone this season and with 12 points picked from their 9 appearances so far; they are not doing a great job in that matter.
The 3-2 loss on the road against Lahti’s last time out in the campaign was their second loss within the recent five fixtures in the schedule. And at home, they are unbeaten in four attempts so far this season.
SJK is on a winless streak and the dry run has been following in seven of their eight fixtures in the campaign until now this season. Their last three matches had ended in a draw.
All their away games have ended winless in the league so far. With two draws and losses each in their schedule, the visitor doesn’t intimidate the home team in the clash.
They will visit after a goalless draw on the road with Honka in the campaign.
