Our prediction for this Finland Veikkausliiga match:
Ilves and Haka take on each other in a highly-anticipated clash at Tammelan Stadion. Ilves aim to regain their spot in top six, and we are positive that they will go for a win in Monday’s showdown. Eetu Vertainen should keep his place up front after the 22-year-old scored his fourth goal of the season in the 1-1 draw with KTP.
Haka, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their four-match winless run in the Veikkausliiga. Since Teemu Tainio’s troops are likely to go for a win in Monday’s game as well, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. Haka defender Eero-Matti Auvinen will have to serve his ban against Ilves as he was sent off in the midweek draw with Honka. In their last encounter in the Finnish top flight Ilves and Haka played out a 1-1 draw.
