This is he 3rd match for both teams in Group B. This can be considered as a “derby” game as the difference between the two cities is only 120km (short distance in Finland). VPS plays in the Veikkausliiga and KPV is one of the main promotion candidates in the Ykkönen.

VPS has changed a lot since last season when it comes to the players. They have a lot of new players coming in and a lot going out. These changes seem to have worked as VPS has started their season with a good 2-0 win over FF Jaro and 0-5 win over PKKU. The offense seems to be much better than last season. That was one of their weaknesses and they have definitely done something about it.

KPV has gotten many new players also and they are one of the favourites for promotion this season. They have not gotten all their players playing yet so their start to the Finnish Cup has been slow. They first drew 1-1 with Kakkonen team TPV at home and they then lost 1-2 to Veikkausliiga team SJK. On a good day they can challenge any team. KPV will get some players back to this match but will still miss Milos Josimov, Matthew Mendy and Joonas Myllymäki. Ville Koskimaa is back and he will be available to face his team from last season.

Starting Line ups:
VPS: Meerits – Ojamaa, Auvinen, Aubrey, Engström – Laatikainen, Voutilainen, Lähde, Hakola – Morrissey, Douglas
KPV: Lelo – Rauhala, Kääntä, Koskimaa, Mäki – Huuhka, Poutiainen, Niskanen, Byskata – Iaroshenko, Multanen

Prediction:

This should be a tighter match for VPS as they met Jaro when the visitors were not in form and their last match was against a weak PKKU side. KPV on the other hand has improved and is getting better by the minute. There is a small chance for upset here so X2 is our main pick.
