Reason For HIFK vs FC Inter Betting Tips
Things haven’t gone too badly for HIFK of late, though the hosts will be hoping to regain the winning thread after drawing each of their last three matches, especially as they’re now without a win in four. In contrast, Inter Turku come into this match off the back of four straight wins, though only one of those came away from home.
One loss and three draws from their last four games, HIFK have been slightly disappointing of late. They’ve not been easy to get the better of, which is why they’ve avoided defeat in each of their last three, but they’ve not exactly impressed during that time, especially from an attacking point of view.
Last time out, HIFK offered little going forward, as they posted a measly 0.21 expected goals for, while much of the same can be said for their last home game, where they created only 0.43. They conceded 0.91 and 1.15 in those two matches, so it’s probably fair to say that they were slightly fortunate to draw.
Even at home, HIFK aren’t offering much going forward; they’ve scored only four goals in four games at Telia 5g -areena, while they average just 0.84 expected goals for. They’ve not done badly at the other end, conceding only three goals, by an average of 1.01 expected goals against suggests that they’re struggling to create more than their opponents.
In contrast, Saturday’s visitors have looked good going forward, both in recent weeks and overall this season. They beat KuPS last time out, while they notched twice on route to winning their last away game. An average of 1.89 goals for is the best in the division.
Even on their travels, Inter Turku have offered a decent amount in the final third, as they’ve scored an average of 1.6 goals awy from home. They also average 1.29 expected goals for, which is somewhat better than HIF’s figure at home. Having scored two goals in their most recent away game, Inter will surely fancy themselves to go to Telia 5g -areena and cause the hosts plenty of problems.
From a betting point of view, ‘Inter Turku to Win & Under 3.5 Goals’ catches the eye. The hosts don’t often get battered at this venue, but they lack the forward quality to compete with the best side in the division, who can record a routine win with nothing other than a repeat of their most recent travelling performance.
