RoPS Rovaniemi vs HIFK
Finland Veikkausliiga
Date: Saturday, 8th July 2017
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Rovaniemen Keskuskentta.

RoPS will host HIFK in a very important relegation battle clash this Saturday at Rovaniemen Keskuskentta.

The hosts are currently in a much better position being seven points above at the 10th position, but a potential defeat would significantly complicate their situation in the battle for avoiding the relegation to Ykkonen.

RoPS

RoPS showed decent defensive displays in last two rounds to het on the brink of the eighth position in the standings.

The team led by Juha Malinen won four points conceding only a single goal in last two fixtures with Ilves and PS Kemi and they will have a nice chance to keep the good form going against the struggling HIFK.

HIFK

Tahtirinnat made a major step towards avoiding the rock bottomed of the standings two weeks ago when they claimed a demolishing 0-3 win over JJK.

However, Antti Muurinen’s squad failed to back it up on Tuesday when they returned to the losing ways suffering a disastrous 4-1 defeat to Lahti on the road.

Rovaniemi vs HIFK: Head to head

It is very interesting to note that none of the last seven head to head meetings between the two teams offered three or more goals.

RoPS have been slightly more successful over the history as they lost only two of ten clashes with HIFK who clinched a narrow 1-0 win in early May when the teams played each other in the first part of this Veikkausliiga’s term.

Rovaniemi vs HIFK: Prediction

The draw has been the most common of the outcomes in the most recent head to head history, but when you sum it all up – the value has to be with the hosts who are 6/4 to pick up three points at their Rovaniemen Keskuskentta.
