VPS vs Ilves
Finland – Veikkausliiga
Date: Saturday, 29 June 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Elisa Stadion (Vaasa).
Ilves has the top spot up for grabs. They are currently in the second position, trailing by a single point, and with a game in hand over the current leader, Honka.
The former’s gameplay has been styled around their almost impenetrable defense. They have conceded the least number of goals till this point, 6, while ten of the remaining eleven failed to keep it in single digit.
Hosts VPS is the only squad yet to post a win on the board and lost four of their last five fixtures as well. They are placed second from the bottom in the table, and ten of the total twelve squads in contention have registered double the number of points as them, and five of those have triple that amount.
The last match-day, they recorded a draw on the road against Inter Turku but had to concede five yellows and a red in return for that.

VPS vs Ilves Prediction
Ilves is one of the best teams in the competition and has the best defense. They have conceded just six goals so far and lost just a single tie yet. They have a game in hand, and a win in this fixture should place them at the absolute top of the table.
The squad won their last three games in a row and was unbeaten in 23 of their last 24 ties. Of these, 18 were wins, and the side also had a run of eight straight wins during this stretch.
On the other hand, VPS is winless in their last 13 games, and in 16 of their last 17 too. Their run of five straight losses just came to an end the last day with a 1-1 draw. Moreover, they are winless against this opponent at this venue in the last three years.
By all means, expect the potential toppers to have a great field day this weekend.
