The odds for a draw is very low in this game and with good reason. The ball control game of VPS and the fast counter attacking game of Ilves seem to cancel each other out and they draw many games. Their last four meeting have ended in a draw. Both teams are still challenging for a Euro Cup place so neither team can afford to lose points on this.

VPS has not won in their last seven games, but the last three have ended up in a draw. They are difficult to beat but they do struggle offensively against good defensive teams, which Ilves definitely has. Ilves on the other hand lost their last match to FC Honka, but that was very unlucky as they were all over them in the 2nd half.
