Our prediction for this Finland Veikkausliiga match:
Following a goalless draw with KTP, Ilves will be aiming to return to winning ways in the Veikkausliiga when they face Mariehamn on Saturday. Ilves have been involved in some low-scoring games of late, with under 2.5 goals being netted in four of their last five league fixtures. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team, but defender Kalle Katz could sneak into the starting XI after coming as a substitute in the last league fixture.
Mariehamn, on the other hand, head into the match following a 2-1 loss to AC Oulu. The Gronvitt defeated title-chasing KuPS in their last away game, but beating Ilves on the road is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, we believe that both teams should be happy with one point from Saturday’s encounter. Forward De is banned for the visiting side.
