IFK Mariehamn vs Honka
Date: Wednesday, 4 July 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: Wiklof Holding Arena (Mariehamn).
Mariehamn have dropped into the immediate danger zone with a very poor streak recently, sitting just two points above the 11th placed TPS (who have a game in hand) after bagging four points in nine outings. They have earned a 2-1 win over PS Kemi in their last outing at Wiklof Holding Arena, surely hoping to build on it as they host Honka for their Matchday 18 clash on Wednesday.
However, the in-form visitors should be much more of a challenge and it’s tough to see them outclassed here. Honka come into the matchup on the back of a six-game unbeaten streak where they earned four wins and two draws, including a 2-2 thriller against RoPS on Saturday.
Vesa Vasara’s men have thus been in great shape especially in the attacking third and two against RoPS meant a great total of ten goals scored in their last four outings! They’ve impressed despite troubles keeping it together at the back and we believe we’ll see a very confident outfit on the day as well.
IFK Mariehamn vs Honka: Head-to-head
Honka haven’t beaten Mariehamn since July 2013 (1-4 at this ground).
Mariehamn have earned three wins and three draws in six head-to-head clashes since then.
We’ve seen a 1-1 draw between the sides earlier this term, as Mariehamn’s Simon Silverholt netted a very late equalizer at Tapiolan Urheilupuisto in May.
IFK Mariehamn vs Honka: Prediction
We will now back Honka to finally end the unwanted streak and build on their much better spell of form recently, snatching an Away win priced at 2.30. We do believe they have what it takes to put this one out of reach as the visitors boast a convincing goal scoring tally now!
With that in mind, we hope to see goals on the day and we’ll thus also back Over 2.5 goals FT at 1.80, which seems great value for those keeping their faith we’ll see a winner on the day. We have seen both sides regularly score and concede goals lately and we do feel we’re in for another exciting occasion.
