Veikkausliiga Game Week 24 results: RoPS, Ilves and KuPS are the big winners

Round Winners:

  • RoPS got a big win beating FC Lahti on Monday. It was only Lahti´s second home loss this season. The win moves RoPS just 5 points behind leaders HJK but the northerners have played one game more.
  • Ilves continues their fine form which has seen them win three of their last four games. They are four points from 3rd position with two games in hand.
  • KuPS beat FC Inter 0-1 ending their hosts undefeated streak and earning the third consecutive win which moves them to 3rd spot.
  • TPS ended their losing streak with a great 4-1 win. The four goals will definitely give them confidence in the relegation fight.

Round Losers:

  • SJK looked to be changing their fortunes in the league this season after beating VPS away from home but Ilves went 0-3 ahead before SJK started playing. The difference to the relegation zone is only 4 points. They can still get dragged into that fight. Next week they will face PS Kemi and if they lose that one, then they are in real trouble.
  • VPS has now failed to win in their last four games. They lost to the bottom club TPS way too easily on Friday.
  • HJK drew 0-0 at home against bottom club PS Kemi and continued their miserable week. They got knocked out from the Europa League on Thursday and on match day on Saturday Moshtagh Yaghoubi learned that he was not on starting line-up and refused to come to the game. The things are not well with the leaders.
