Our prediction for this Finland Veikkausliiga match:
Ilves will be aiming to recover from a 1-0 loss to HJK when they take on VPS on Friday afternoon. Ilves have been struggling in front of goal of late, with the team failing to find the net in the previous league fixtures and, no doubt, they are eager to put an end to the negative trend. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team, but talented forward Mery Traore could sneak into the starting XI.
VPS, meanwhile, look unstoppable at the moment, with the team winning each of their last five league matches. The visitors have been in a splendid form of late and we predict that they will take advantage of the current situation in Ilves’ dressing room. In their last meeting in the Finnish top flight Ilves defeated VPS 2-0, meaning that the visitors are hungry for revenge. A man to watch in the away team will be Peter Michael, who scored a brace in a 4-1 crushing of Haka.
