Vaasan Sport vs SaiPa by Duyce
For today, I chose a hockey match from finnish SM-Liiga between Vaasa and SaiPa.
Home team - Vaasa are having a rough season as they sit on 14th place of the table (only above HPK). They have decent stats from home matches (managed to beat Tappara and Jyvaskyla) but i dont think they met and opponent of SaiPa caliber at home stadium. Posting stats and so is nice but the most important thing is that Vaasa played yesterday against TPS Turku. It was a match where Vaasa had chance to grab some points until 10th minute of the 3rd period. At that point they were losing 4-0 and fate of the match was pretty much decided. After the match they had to travel home and they have only a few hours to prepare for another game.
Guests for this match - SaiPa are having a suberb form. From last 3 matches they have a 13-0 score! Defensive side of their play seems to do better after few not so good games. They had 3 days to rest and managed to score 3.6 goals per match so far (league best). They are also 3rd best team in defence.
Tired home team after 2 periods
Solid defensive work from guests.
Max. 2 goals from Vaasa
In case of overtime, fatigue of home team will show even more - SaiPa will most likely score
Over 50% of matches in SM Liiga ends with home win but i dont think that home crowd will be enough for tired Vaasa to take the win here. Good luck.
