Our prediction for this Finland Veikkausliiga match:
Ratina Stadion will host Monday’s Veikkausliiga between Ilves and AC Oulu, the two teams who are level on points in the standings. Ilves quickly got their revenge of HIFK, with the team beating Mixu Paatelainen’s troops thanks to Ariel Ngueukam’s goal. Toni Kallio’s men regained a much-needed confidence, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to secure a top-six finish.
AC Oulu, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 6-0 loss to VPS, which is probably the main reason why we are going to put our money on the home side. To make things even worse for the visiting team, defender Miika Koskela misses out through suspension as he was sent off in the last league match. The two sides shared the spoils in their last encounter in the Finnish top flight.
