Tallinna Kalev will take on Kalju in round 18 of Estonian Meistriliiga. The match will take place at Kalevi Keskstaadion in Tallinn on Tuesday, 28 June.
Kalev was elected to the top league in the country. The “Black-white and Blue” have a rich history. They were the champions during the first independence, which was between the two world wars. They also won the cup. Even in Soviet times, it was known as “Baltflot” and played well in the Soviet football championship. This project was revived in 2002. It never reached the Meistriliiga top six. The last season was spent at the second division level. However, it was possible to earn the right return to the elite in 2021 and take second place. The results have been modest so far. Not even one point is scored per match. The Legion and Vaprus are both very weak.
Kaju is slowly losing ground. In 2018, the Pink Panthers were crowned national champions for the second time in their history. In the next season, there was only “bronze” The capital club finished in 4th place in the final standings twice more. It is now clear that it won’t be possible to force Flora (to whom she recently lost and without any options, 0-2) or Levadia to fight for the trophy. However, Kalju has the unofficial title “the best among all” and shows quite good statistics in the Estonian championship draw’s starting segment. Their average fight score is 2 points.
Kalev won a haed to head in 2009. Kalju defeated this opponent in 7 of their most recent fights, including this spring’s victory, 2-1 at home. Kalju will not be fighting for the title, but they are worthy of the 3rd spot. This team is most likely to win this match. We bet on them with a handicap of “-10.5 goals scored”.
Prediction: Kalju to win the match with -1.5 handicap
