Our prediction for this Finland Veikkausliiga match:
Ilves will be aiming to get their revenge on HIFK for a 1-0 loss when the two teams face each other at Bolt Arena on Monday. Ilves have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team sitting in 6th place in the standings ahead of the trip to Helsinki. Defender Tuomas Ollila should keep his place in the starting XI despite failing to convert a penalty in the last league match.
HIFK, on the other hand, are stuck at the bottom with only six points on their account. The capital club did well to beat Ilves on the road, but it has to be noted that Toni Kallilo’s troops failed to turn their dominance into goals in the Ratina Stadion clash. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Finnish rising star Kai Meriluoto, who has already netted six goals this term.
