Inter Turku vs Ilves
Finland – Veikkausliiga
Date: Friday, 31st May 2019
Kick-off at 16.30 UK/ 17.30 CET
Venue: Veritas Stadion (Turku).
Inter Turku is the best team in the competition, and rightfully they are placed at the top of the table. They are also the only team in the league to stay unbeaten in the last five match-days. On top of that, they have scored the most goals so far and won four of their last five league fixtures.
Ilves thrive on the brilliance of their defense. They have conceded mere two goals so far in the tournament, and the next best squad has let in four times more than that of them.
In the same breath, they have also struggled to score goals as well. The team recorded just six goals from their nine matches.
Inter Turku vs Ilves Head-to-head (h2h)
- Nine of the last ten matches had under 2.5 goals.
- Two of the last three wins went to the teams at home.
- Five of the last six games had two goals or fewer.
- The last time these two met, the hosts of the day recorded a 1-0 win.
Inter Turku vs Ilves Prediction
The highlight of the game will surely be the extraordinary defense of Ilves. They have conceded just two goals from their nine matches and just one on the road. To complement that, they have scored just six goals in their league campaign so far.
Along with that, nine of the last ten matches had under 2.5 goals, and so did five of the last six games at this venue. As such, expect two or fewer goals this Friday on the pitch.
Considering the home advantage of Inter, and the fact that they are the topper, the upper hand resides with them. Moreover, they won four of their last five games and the last three at home. On the other hand, Ilves lost their last game, which was coincidentally on the road.
If trends are to be taken at face value, expect the hosts to grind out a tough win this weekend.
