HIFK vs Ilves: Top Free Betting Tips

HIFK and Ilves fight in the relegation battle against each other for the second game of the relegation round on Wednesday, 28 September. Both teams are on a terrible winless streak in Veikkausliiga ahead of this game.

Ilves to Win

Ilves are also on a winless run but Helsinki IFK are getting desperate with a horrible string of defeats. The Star Chested has not won a single game in any tournament since the start of July and lost the previous four in a row. On the other hand, Ipa has lost only one away meeting in the last eight visits, winning two of them. Moreover, Ilves are undefeated in the recent nine visiting H2Hs against HIFK, getting six wins. So Ilves will be our favourites to take away three points in this duel.

Under 2.5 Goals

Ipa has managed an average of two goals per game in the last five attempts but HIFK doesn’t look prepared. The Reds have scored only four goals in the previous five home games, scoring three in a single match. HIFK also hit the target only twice in the recent five H2Hs and witnessed four H2Hs below 2.5 goals. Hence, a low-scoring outcome is the most probable outcome for this encounter.

Both Teams to Score: No

Helsinki IFK has horrible scoring results on their home turf because they didn’t succeed to score in four of the previous five hosting games, leaking goals consecutively. On the contrary, Ilves has been on the scoreboard in four of the last five games. Moreover, Ipa has kept three clean sheets in the last four H2Hs against HIFK. So in our opinion, Ilves will be the only side on the score sheet at the end.
