VPS vs IFK Mariehamn Preview and Prediction

VPS vs IFK Mariehamn
Finland – Veikkausliiga
Date: Wednesday, 20 June 2018
Kick-Off at 16:30 UK
Venue: Elisa Stadion (Vaasa).

In the 15th round of Finnish Veikkausliiga, VPS are going to host IFK Mariehamn on Wednesday afternoon. The hosts are holding themselves in the middle of the table and they are pretty far from the relegation trouble. Although they haven’t been playing very well lately, Petri Vuorinen’s side managed to improve in the latest round and celebrate an away victory against FC Inter. VPS have been playing pretty tight this season and they are not scoring neither conceding a lot. However, they need to improve their home displays as they failed to win in front of their fans three times in a row.

The visitors have an awful season as they are just a point above the relegation zone. Their recent form indicates that we shouldn’t expect their improvement soon as they booked three defeats in a row and managed to snatch just a point from the last five games. Aleksei Kangaskolkka’s side has the worst defensive record in the competition and although they are doing well in the front, leaking defence costed them many points this season.

VPS vs Mariehamn: Head-to-head

IFK Mariehamn haven’t suffered a defeat against their opponents since 2015, however during that period we were able to see five draws in eight matches. Their clashes are usually low-scoring ones with at most two goals per game in total.

VPS vs Mariehamn: Prediction

VPS should vaporise their victory in the latest round and book another one in a row. The visitors are performing very poor currently and they shouldn’t be able to get anything from this trip to Vaasa.

Although the visitors allowed too many goals, VPS are playing very tight this season and IFK Mariehamn might try to keep this match under 2.5 margin which would increase their chances of snatching a positive result.
