Only one game tonight in Ykkönen; FC KTP vs EIF
FC KTP vs EIF 18:30 Arto Tolsa Areena, Kotka
Bethard odds: 1.80 – 3.65 – 3.95
FC KTP was one of the favourites this season in Ykkönen as they have collected a very strong group for this level. Despite this, they have lost their opening two matches, first 0-1 at home to AC Oulu and then 6-3 away from home to FC Haka. The results are not as surprising as was the performance. Basically out of the 4 halves in those two games, they have played awful football in three of them. KTP had a very good pre-season so no idea where that performance level has gone.
EIF has not started much better either. EIF was 3rd last season but the team has changed almost completely for this season and they started with a loss to Jaro and then a 1-1 draw against TPS who were playing with 10-men for most of the match. They still have the same Spanish head coach who is really good and should get this team playing well again this season. They are already good defensively but offensively they struggle to create chances.
The teams met 3 times last season and EIF won twice and once the points were shared. This season they met in the Finnish Cup with EIF winning 1-0.
KTP has played so poorly that EIF has a chance here. EIF is a good defense-minded team and very difficult to beat. Main pick is EIF double chance. Bethard having 1.90 odds for this.
