MP will welcome PIF to for a matchday 13 fixture in Finland Ykkönen. The last meeting on 30th April 2022 ended in a MP 3-2 win. Both sides have met one time in the most recent seasons. MP has won 1 match, and PIF failed to win on every occasion. Recent outings average 5.00 goals, while both teams score 100% of the time.
MP’s latest fixture against KTP ended in an away 4-1 loss. I expected more from MP. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points. MP set the tone early and scored in the 16 minute.
PIF’s recent game against PK-35 ended in a home 3-2 win. Although PIF didn’t match their opponent’s intensity and quality while on possession, it was still enough. PIF had good chances in both halves and scored in the 33rd, 52nd and 82nd minute.
Since the start of the season, MP is more dominant at home. They have one wins out of 4 games on home soil. Although MP 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 25% home clean sheets.
PIF has picked up 3 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. PIF has collected 0.80 points on average per away game, compared to 0.43 at home. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. PIF kept a clean sheet in just 20% of their visits.
It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. MP is yet to lose at home, being undefeated in four games.
PIF failed to win in three consecutive away games. It will be a big surprise to turn up on Wednesday and win against MP. Furthermore, they are in really bad away form, having lost three consecutive games on the road.
I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. MP wins on average 1.50 points per home game, compared to 0.80 points per away game for PIF. My prediction is MP to win.
Still, I expect a close game and don’t think that we will see a lot of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 2.53 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 43% of MP’s home and PIF’s away games. My prediction is Under 2.5 Goals.
