Ilves
Ilves
WWWWWD 📈

Ilves prepare for this match after a 1-1 Veikkausliiga tied result versus HJK.

The only name on the scoresheet from Ilves was Santeri Haarala (24'). Luke Plange (66') was the scorer for HJK.

Their most recent results reveal that it has been a great time for the Ilves rearguard. Ilves have been miserly, with the tally of goals that have flown into the back of their net over the course of their previous six games standing at 3. It will be interesting to find out if that trend can be sustained in this game.

Going into this game, the form guide shows that Ilves:

  • have not won against KuPS in their last 6 league games.
  • are undefeated in their last 3 league matches at home.

KuPS
KuPS
WDWDWW 📈

KuPS go into this encounter following a 4-1 Veikkausliiga win to defeat Ekenäs IF in their previous fixture.

For KuPS, the scorers were Jonathan Muzinga (22'), Petteri Pennanen (45'), Joslyn Luyeye-Lutumba (58') and Taneli Hämäläinen (70'). Simon Lindholm (30') scored for Ekenäs IF.

A succession of outstanding performances by the KuPS defenders has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded amounting to 4 from their last 6 fixtures combined. In that period, the number of goals that they have scored themselves amounts to 11.

Analysis of their past results shows that KuPS:

  • remain unbeaten by Ilves when having played them away from home in the previous 2 league matches.
  • are undefeated in their last 14 away league matches. What a run it has been.

↔️ Head to head

A study of their past head to head meetings stretching back to 25/07/2021 reveals that these fixtures have not been good ones for Ilves. They’ve not managed to get any wins at all whereas KuPS have been too good for them, beating them in 83 per cent of those games where they have faced each other.

11 goals were produced between them in these games, with 2 from Ipa and 9 belonging to Keltamusta. That’s an average goals per game of 1.83.

The last league encounter between these sides was Veikkausliiga match day 19 on 13/08/2023 when the final score was Ilves 0-3 KuPS.

The match was refereed by Joni Hyytia.

🗞️ Team News: Ilves

The Ilves manager Joonas Rantanen will be grateful not to have any fitness worries to speak of ahead of this clash owing to a completely healthy squad available for selection.

🗞️ Team News: KuPS

Due to a fully injury-free squad to choose from, the KuPS manager Jani Honkavaara does not have any fitness worries to report before this clash.

💭 Prediction

When taking all factors into account, KuPS are dangerous enough to find the back of the net against this Ilves lineup, although it is unlikely to be enough to avoid a loss.

We’re going for a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 advantage for Ilves after the 90. It’s a very tough call.
