Football Bet of the Day: Canaries to have their feathers ruffled
KuPS host Ilves in Finland this afternoon and Tobias Gourlay reckons both sides can find the net
"KuPS are second in the table, despite failing to keep a clean sheet in any of their six home games so far"
KuPS v Ilves
Belgium do indeed set off for Russia on a high, but their 4-1 win over Costa Rica last night left us behind.
We return to domestic action today, as Finland lays on a full round of its top-flight Veikkausliiga. Jani Honkavaara's KuPS are second in the table, despite failing to keep a clean sheet in any of their six home games so far (W2-D2-L2). Home and away, they've got the worst defence in the top half (15 goals conceded in 13 games). Dip back into last season and it's actually 11 straight home games without a clean sheet.
Today's visitors have already won the reverse fixture 2-1 this term. In fact, since returning to the top flight, Ilves have won all 10 league meetings with the Canaries, including four previous trips to Kuopio Football Stadium. Against that backdrop, [5.1] looks a big price for the visitors. We, however, are concentrating on Both Teams to Score. Ilves haven't been great on the road this season (W2-D1-L4) but they have scored in five of those seven matches and we think they can strike again this afternoon.
