Our prediction for this Finland Veikkausliiga match:
After sharing the spoils with Lahti in midweek, Haka will be aiming to record their first home win of the season when they host Ilves at their Tehtaan Kentta. Haka have been struggling to find their best form in the first half of the season, but their recent displays are surely giving fans a reason for optimism. Teemu Tainio’s men did well to beat HIFK on the road at the weekend, and they are certainly capable of matching Ilves in front of home fans.
The visitors, on the other hand, were not in action in midweek. Ilves aim to build on a 3-1 win over Lahti, but given their anything but brilliant away record, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. It has to be noted that under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of their last three meetings in all competitions.
