IFK Mariehamn v TPS – What to bet
IFK Mariehamn is known to be good team at home ground and they have lost only once at home this season. TPS got their only win away ground but have lost all their other games playing away. IFK Mariehamn doesn’t hold the ball much, and they have lost ball possession in all games, except their first one. IFK Mariehamn creates multiple chances and have been successful in scoring. TPS can win possession, and create chances, but they are failing to score.
IFK is a better team and they have things working in attack couple of latest games also show some improvement in defensive end too. TPS who can’t score or defend right now could be in trouble against the hosts, who have gotten their self-confidence up by winning their last two games. With a red hot striker up front, I think IFK Mariehamn will win this game.
