RoPS vs Ilves
Finland – Veikkausliiga
Date: Wednesday, 4 July 2018
Kick-Off at 16:30 UK
Venue: Rovaniemen Keskuskentta (Rovaniemi).
One of the most interesting clashes in 18th round of Finnish Veikkausliiga is going to be contested between RoPS and Ilves.
RoPS home team missed the chance to get closer to the top spot after snatching just a point in a 2-2 away draw against Honka.
They are enjoying a five-match unbeatable streak, however, RoPS tied two straight draws.
Although Toni Koskela’s side hasn’t been too productive, their defensive work is the best in the competition.
When it comes to playing in front of home fans, RoPS have been fairly goals and they allowed just four goals to their opponents.
Ilves have been involved in a lot of draw matches lately and they split the points three times in the last four occasions.
They are sitting in the middle of the table and if the visitors want to get themselves involved in the battles for one of the spots in Europa League, they need to stop spilling the points.
However, Tatu Miettunen and the lads have been pretty tight in the back, their forwards need to improve their productivity.
RoPS vs Ilves: Head-to-head
In their last four head to head clashes, both sides managed to book two wins each. Looking deeper into the history of their encounters, RoPS have been more successful as they tied four straight wins three years ago. Their matches are not high scooting ones and usually the crowd can see at most two goals.
RoPS vs Ilves: Prediction
This is going to be another tight clash of these two sides and this time we are expecting the hosts to book a victory and remain in the title race. They need to keep their unbeatable run intact so they can keep up with HJK.
These two sides haven’t been involved in efficient matches this season and since the hosts are very hard to crack at home ground, in this one we shouldn’t expect more than two goals. In addition to that, Ilves have troubles in finding the back of the oppositions’ net.
