VPS vs Ilves
Finland – Veikkausliiga
Date: Wednesday, 25th April 2018
Kick-off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Elisa Stadion (Vaasa).
Three points will be the target for VPS and Ilves when they meet in the 2018 Veikkausliiga fixture this Wednesday.
VPS made a winning start to the campaign at the expense of Inter Turku. They lost at home to the inform Rovaniemi and drew Mariehamn since. Coming back to home turf, they will fancy the chances against a team like Ilves who lost both their away matches so far this season.
Despite losing a pair of away matches, Ilves bagged their first win of the season at their home turf against last season’s runner-up KuPS. Now, it is true that their home record in the previous seasons has been good. It is the away performances that halt them from achieving bigger things. They finished third last season and Europa League is on the beckoning. So, they cannot simply rely on home results to repeat the same this season.
VPS vs Ilves: Head-to-head
- The last 7 h2h meetings between VPS and Ilves registered under 2.5 goals.
- Three of the last 4 meetings between the sides are stalemates with Ilves winning in 1.
- However, VPS had won in 4 of the 5 previous h2h meetings while losing the other.
- VPS had won 2, drew 1 and lost 2 of the 6 home matches against Ilves so far.
VPS vs Ilves: Predictions
Slow start to both teams, still it is early days of the season and plenty of times to catch up.
Despite suffering some lusty blow, I think VPS are the team with a better chance to register a win here. Ilves are poor on the travels and their accolades last season has to be considered as a one-off incident. Still, they were only looking to avoid away defeats than go on and win a few. VPS are not a side that you can trust with your money, so the better option is a double chance on home win or draw.
