Our prediction for this Finland Veikkausliiga match:
KTP will look to make amends for a 2-0 loss to Helsinki when they take on Ilves on Wednesday afternoon. KTP have been in a dreadful form of late, and given their five-game losing run in the Veikkausliiga, home win should not be considered. Both Nguinda Ndiffon. and Laaksonen are pushing for a start. Ilves, on the other hand, did well to beat title-chasing Inter Turku in their last league match, with the team regaining a much-needed confidence.
Considering that KTP have been struggling at the back in June, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Jarkko Wiss’ charges. Ilves teenage midfielder Eric Oteng, who suffered an injury in the victory over Inter, is unlikely to feature in the midweek fixture. In their last encounter in the Finnish top flight Ilves defeated KTP 2-0, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the visitors.
