Ilves – ÅIFK Pre Game
Today is the day! The biggest day on the sporting calendar as far as my football season goes, Bigger than premier league derby games, Euro 2012, World Cup qualifiers… This is Ilves’ time to once again play in the second level of Finnish football, a stepping stone to the Veikkausliiga.
One win, infact not even that, just a draw a boring 0-0 draw will be the best thing we’ve seen in a long time, it doesn’t have to be entertaining, it doesn’t need to be a goalfest, just as long as it’s not a defeat that is all that matters. I fully expect it to be roughly the same teams as Ilves and ÅIFK put out a week ago in Turku, In the last FIVE meetings between us both there have been 5 Ilves wins, 4 of the times we won the match without conceding a goal.
We are undefeated and invincible in the regular season at home, one more perfect game is all we need.
