Tobias Gourlay’s headed to Finland for one of this afternoon’s four Veikkausliiga matches
IFK Mariehamn v RoPS
In Russia yesterday, Tambov and Sochi served up just a single goal – for the visitors – to deny our BTTS bet. We’re looking to make amends in Finland today.
After ten matches of their Veikkausliiga campaign, IFK Mariehamn are eighth in the table with an even W4-D2-L4 record. On home turf the Islanders are W2-D2-L1, having won each of their last two games at Wiklof Holding Arena and look strong enough to win this fixture for the fifth time in its last six runnings.
RoPS are 12th and last in the table. They’ve lost 4/4 on the road, conceding three times in two of those defeats. They’ve scored only once across those four matches themselves and look set for another loss this afternoon.
We’re backing IFK Mariehamn -0.5 & -1.0 on the Asian handicap. If they win by one, we’ll win on half our stake, with the other half returned. For a full win, we need them the hosts to win by two or more.
