Bottom and Top Clash in Finland

There is a full fixture list to enjoy in the Finland Veikkausliiga on the weekend.  On Saturday 29th June VPS Vaasa take on Ilves Tampere at the Elisa Stadion in Vaasa.

This a clash between two teams at the opposite end of the table.  VPS Vaasa are currently in 11th place with just 7 points to their name this season from twelve games played.  Only one team is below them in the table.

Ilves Tampere on the other hand are sitting second in the league with 22 points from eleven games played.  A win in this match and dropped points for Honka could see Ilves Tampere move to the top of the table.

VPS Vaasa come into this game having picked up a point in a 1-1 draw at Inter Turku on Tuesday night. This was a good result because Inter Turku are currently sitting 4th in the league and it was away from home.  Not only that but it was the first point VPS Vaasa have won in their last six matches.

They lost each of the previous five and trends show they have failed to win any of their last thirteen matches in all competitions.  In fact, VPS Vaasa have won just one of their last twenty-five Veikkausliiga games, which is a very poor record.

VPS Vaasa have seen under 2.5 goals in seven of their last nine league games and have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last ten.

Ilves Tampere make the trip to Vaasa having defeated KPV 4-2 in an exciting game on Tuesday night. They fell 1-0 down and 2-1 down but scored 3 unanswered goals to emerge victorious and keep the pressure on the leaders.

Ilves Tampere have won each of their last three games, two of which have been in the league and one in the cup.  Trends show they have lost only one of their last eleven Veikkausliiga matches and that came away at KuPS on the 24th May.

Away form shows Ilves Tampere have kept a clean sheet in four of their last six away league games and they have lost just one of their last six on the road.  However, they have scored no more than a single goal once in their last five away league matches.

Looking ahead to the team news and VPS Vaasa could be without the injured trio of Aatu Kujanpaa, Samba Sillah and Kostas Stavrothanasopoulos.

Ilves Tampere could be without two players as Aleksi Tarvonen and Santeri Haarala are doubtful.

This has the makings of being a low scoring game.  However, Ilves Tampere are in much better form than the hosts and we could see a 1-0 away win.
