KuPS vs Ilves 2018 Veikkausliiga Predictions 12th June 2018 by LeagueLane

KuPS vs Ilves
Finland – Veikkausliiga
Date: Tuesday, 12 June 2018
Kick-Off at 16:30 UK
Venue: Savon Sanomat Areena (Kuopio).

KuPS are going to host Ilves in the 13th round of Finnish Veikkausliiga during the mid-week action. The hosts are far from challenging the title although they are sitting on the 2nd place, however they will focus on the battles for the place in European cups. They failed to win in the last two occasions and now home side is facing a direct rival for the place in the top three. Rasmus Karjalainen and the lads are one of the most efficient sides in the competition, however their defending could have been better.

The visitors are sitting on the 5th place and are three points behind their opponents. Their streak of three matches without suffering a defeat has been broken in the latest round with a defeat against Honka. Jarjjo Wiss’ side needs to improve both their attacking work and defending and they should be lucky of picking up so many points so far.

KuPS vs Ilves: Head-to-head

It is very interesting that KuPS haven’t celebrated a single victory against their rivals! Ilves tied 12 straight victories and the hosts managed to get away with a point just once in a total of their 14 head to head clashes. When these two teams are facing each other, the crowd is usually able to see a moderate number of goals.

KuPS vs Ilves: Predictions

It is very hard to predict this one as the current form and the tradition are in a big collision. The visitors might remain undefeated in this one as they know very well how to play against KuPS. Draw seems like valuable and logical choice.

In this one we could be able to see goals in both nets as the hosts are very productive in the front, while Ilves were capable of scoring at least once every time when these two sides met each other. Goalkeepers shouldn’t be capable of keeping the clean sheet in this one.
