TPS vs VPS
Finland – Veikkausliigaa
Date: Friday, 17 August 2018
Kick-Off at 16:30 UK / 17:30 CET
Venue: Veritas Stadion, Turku.
The end to a horrendous streak is nowhere to be seen for TPS who made it five defeats on the bounce at the weekend when they lost 3-0 away at Honka.
Tepsi thus dropped down to the very foot of the Veikkausliiga standings, being two points short of Mariehamn in tenth (safe zone).
Mika Laurikainen’s men will thus be desperate to rebound from recent failures on Friday evening when they host VPS in the first game of the Matchday.
The visitors sit sixth in the league ladder at the moment, but they’ll also come into the game low on confidence after failing to score in last two league outings against SJK.
Petri Vuorinen’s troops are winless in last three league games (two draws and a defeat) and the trip to Turku will be a perfect occasion for them to bounce back get their league campaign on track against the most out-of-form side in the division.
TPS vs VPS: Head-to-head
- TPS lead the head to head tie by nine wins coming into the 46th encounter with Vepsi.
- Last five H2H games offered the total of three goals scored.
- VPS did not concede a single goal in last five meetings with Tepsi.
TPS vs VPS: Prediction
It is hard to ignore the value of the 1.50 odds offered for the visitors not to lose the match knowing they did not ship a single goal in last five H2H affairs with TPS.
Moving forward, the hosts come into this off the back of five consecutive league defeats and they sit at the very foot of the Veikkausliiga ladder.
Braver punters can also try with the clear away win at the odds of 2.62 as Tepsi were very easy to break down recently, allowing three goals in each of last three matches in the league.
Moving forward, Vuorinen’s men were enjoying a strong run of form on travels lately and they’ll head into this off the back of three wins and a draw in last four away fixtures in Veikkausliiga.
