Kokkola’s struggles to continue at Ilves Tampere

On Tuesday evening, high-flying Ilves Tampere host bottom of the table KPV Kokkola in the Finnish Veikkausliiga.

The two teams head into this clash on the back two very different starts to their league campaigns. The home side has the opportunity to go top of the table with a win if results go their way in the midweek fixtures.

However, the season so far has been a tale of woe for the struggling visitors, who have picked up just six points from their opening 11 games in the Finnish top-flight campaign. The prospect of that changing on Tuesday night look slim, as Forebet predicts that the home side will record a victory in a low-scoring encounter.

Despite being third in the standings, Ilves have not been in great form in the league. In fact, they have won just two of their last six outings in the league.

Their recent league matches have also been low-scoring tight affairs, with 12 of their last 13 outings producing under 2.5 goals.

In fact, scoring has been a major problem for the home side, as only the visitors have scored fewer times than Ilves nine goals in the Finish top-flight this season.

However, on the flip-side, they have the best defensive record in the league, having conceded a meagre four goals in their first ten league games. Their record means they have conceded five fewer goals than any team in the Finnish top-flight.

Unfortunately for the visitors, they have struggled at both ends of the pitch this season. Not only have they struggled for goals in attack, but they also have the worst defensive record in the Finnish top-flight.

KPV are in their debut campaign in the Veikkausliiga, but look like they have a lot to learn about playing football at the highest level of the Finnish game. Tuesday night’s game will be just another lesson in their education.
