HIFK will welcome VPS to Bolt Arena for a matchday 20 fixture in Finland Veikkausliiga. The last meeting on 6th October 2019 ended in a HIFK 3-2 win. Both sides have met twelve times in the most recent seasons. HIFK has won 6 matches, and VPS triumphed in 5. Recent outings average 2.92 goals, while both teams score 58% of the time.
HIFK’s last game in the Finland Veikkausliiga against Honka at home ended in a 1-2 loss. The final result is not a surprise. HIFK played less with the ball and therefore had less clear cut chances. HIFK scored in the second half in the 51st minute.
VPS’s previous game in the competition versus Mariehamn ended in an away 3-1 win. Although VPS countered for most of the game, it was more than enough to win. VPS was much better in the second half and scored in the 33rd, 38th and 64th minute.
So far, HIFK plays better on the road than at home. They win 0.50 points per away game on average compared to 0.20 points at home. Although HIFK is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 0% home clean sheets.
VPS has picked up 6 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. VPS has collected 1.80 points on average per away game, compared to 0.25 at home.
The hosts will have to work hard to get a good result. Tähtirinnat has to improve results quickly. They are without a win in five home games. Tähtirinnat has won just 0% of home games. On average they score 0.40 goals and concede 1.80 per game. VPS won their previous away game and I expect more of the same. Their away record looks impressive.
The visitors have a better record and I have to back them. HIFK wins on average 0.20 points per home game. I am not sure they have what it takes to compete against VPS. My prediction is VPS to win.
