The late kick off in the Finnish Veikkausliiga sees two sides face off who have not had their best of runs in recent weeks when IFK Mariehamn welcome FC Inter Turku to the Wiklöf Holding Arena. A major part of the problems facing both of these sides at the moment is their inability to keep the opposition at bay, a trend which we are backing to continue as we are backing both teams to hit the back of the net for our tip.
We may only be a handful of games into the Finnish season, but already the hosts look set for a mid-table finish come the end of the campaign. With 11 games played, they have managed to acquire just 12 points, and with just one win in their last five it doesn’t look to be a record which is set to improve much in the near future.
A major reason behind them struggling to pick up the points they need is their inability to keep the ball out of their net and the fact that they have managed just one clean sheet so far this term is a perfect example of this fact. With so many goals going in at the wrong end, they are fortunate that they can be quite dangerous at the right end of the pitch and the fact that 73% of their matches have finished with both teams scoring gives us great confidence of our tip coming in.
The visitors have also had plenty of struggles in keeping the ball out of the net and they go into this match having conceded 11 times in their previous four outings. FC Inter are not quite as prolific as their hosts but they do know where the back of the net is and the fact that 78% of their points have come on their travels shows that they are unlikely to be phased going into the match this weekend.
