Both team score
HIFK vs Ilves
These two teams played each other just a week ago and Ilves lost 0-1 at home. This was one of the few low-scoring matches that we can see in the statistics of both teams. Three of HIFK's last 5 matches in all competitions finished with three or more goals. Ilves scored more then twice in 7 of their previous 10 competitve matches. HIFK have had a disappointing season so far, after finishing in the top six last year. Now the team from the capital is anchored in the last place in the table. It seems that Mixu Paatelainen's side will be part of the six teams that will fight to keep their place in the top flight after the end of the regular season in the Veikkausliiga. Ilvesa are having constant ups and downs. In this regard, it makes perfect sense that they are in the middle of the table. The main goal for them until the end of the regular season will be to maintain their place in the top six. Which will at least guarantee them that they won't have to worry about relegation. The team led by Toni Kallio is seriously behind the leaders KuPS and HJK Helsinki.
