Honka vs VPS Prediction & Betting tips
The World Cup is nearing its peak! Until Tuesday in Russia but once the ball rests. In neighboring Finland is in full swing, because in the Veikkausliiga – the highest Finnish league – there is no summer break but the eighteenth game is pending. Today, we are looking to Espoo, where Honka Espoo will host Vaasa Palloseura at 16:30 at the Tapiolan Urheilupuisto multipurpose stadium. The bookmakers clearly favor the host, who currently also provides the strongest form team. The guests do not have to hide, but in my eyes the outsider. That’s why I recommend Honka Espoo Vs. Vaasa a tip on the home team. The odds are 1.80, but bets should be played with more cautious stakes in view of the equally decent shape of the guests and the combined balance of both teams.
FC Honka Espoo left the Veikkausliiga in 2014. The reasons were not in the sporting, but rather in the financial field. In the last season, the team from Espoo reached the play-off games and prevailed there against first division Helsingfors IFK. The new season is also starting well. After just over half of the games to be played, the South Fins are with a record of seven wins, eight draws and two defeats, a goal difference of 28:21 and twenty-nine points in fourth place. However, it should be noted that league leaders HJK Helsinki and third-placed KuPS have already played two games more. In particular, KuPS is in direct strike distance and could already be overtaken on Sunday with a win.
And the shape is promising. For seven games, the team of coach Vesa Vasara is now undefeated. Honka Espoo is currently in first place in the form table with five threes and two draws. Especially in the home games Espoo is hard to beat. The last competitive defeat is already over a year back. Most recently in Tapiolan Urheilupuisto were the games against bottom-half PS Kemi (12th, 2: 1), FC Ilves (7th, 4: 1), KuPS (3rd, 2: 1) and SJK Seinäjoki (9th, 3rd: 1), before it was enough to draw second-placed Rovaniemi PS to a 2-2 draw.
Vaasa PS is a team that can be called a lift team. No other Finnish team changed so often between the first and second league. The last descent is already a couple of years back and it seems that the West Finnish team could establish in the Veikkausliiga. Vaasa is currently in sixth place with a record of seven wins, six draws and five defeats, a goal difference of 23:20 and twenty-seven points. The gap to Honka Espoo is currently only two points, but the team of coach Petri Vuorinen has also played one more game. The advantage over the relegation places is already reassuring at this early stage of the season, as fourteen points more are a decent number.
The shape is excellent at first glance. Finally, Vaasa is only one point behind the opponent in the form table. Four games were won and only one was lost. The wins were, however, retracted against the currently worst teams Veikkausliiga. Inter Turku (8th, 3: 1), IFK Mariehamn (10th, 4: 1), PS Kemi (12th, 1: 0) and TPS Turku (11th, 2: 0) were beaten. Against the only strong opponent, however, set it a violent swatter, because at HJK Helsinki Vaasa conceded five goals and had nothing to report itself.
