PS Kemi vs Ilves
Date: Wednesday, 9th August 2017
Kick off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Sauvosaaren Takakentta.
Ilves climbed up to the top half of the Veikkausliiga standings after a streak of six consecutive matches without a single loss.
The run will be challenged this Wednesday when Ipa travel to Sauvosaaren Takakentta to play PS Kemi who have been enjoying a hot run o form in the final third lately.
The hosts bagged five goals in last two league outings and they were seconds away from making a huge upset on Friday against VPS.
Kingit had a 2-3 lead on the road before they conceded a 90th minute equalizer which stopped Jani Ahman’s side from getting back-to-back wins as they have previously dispatched Inter Turku 2-1 on the home court.
Ilves are undefeated in six straight fixtures, but they drew four of the games along the way.
However, Jarjjo Wiss’ men are only three points away from the second-placed VPS which certainly raises the spirits and hopes of some European adventures next summer.
PS Kemi vs Ilves: Head to head
PS Kemi won three of five previous meetings with Ilves including a 2-4 victory in a
thriller played in late-May at Tammelan Stadion.
Filip Valencic was especially inspired for Kingit back then as he notched a brace.
PS Kemi vs Ilves: Prediction
We would not be surprised to see a high-scoring affair on Wednesday since both teams have pretty string weapons in the final third.
Valencic has eight goals to his name so far in the season, while Ilves’ Ariel Ngueukam bagged one goal more.
Moreover, four of the last five games Ilves played saw both teams netting, while the same scenario happened in each of PS Kemi’s last three fixtures.
