Our prediction for this Finland Veikkausliiga match:
Ilves will be looking to make amends for a 2-0 loss to HJK when they host HIFK at their Tammelan Stadion on Matchday 6. Ilves have been having their ups and downs at the start of the season, and it has to be noted that they failed to win the last four league fixtures. Jarkko Wiss’ troops are eyeing their second home win of the season, but they will have to prove their worth on the field.
HIFK have been impressive in the Veikkausliiga of late, with the team heading into the match following back-to-back wins over SJK and Mariehamn. Christoffer Perret’s troops regained a much-needed confidence, and given Ilves’ current form, we predict that the visitors are going to grab something from Saturday’s football game. HIFK defender Hannu Patronen, who has overcome his injury, is pushing for a start.
