This is the 4th match for both teams in the Group A. This match is played in Ounashalli which is a lot smaller than normal football pitches so players do not have as much space to operate.

This is a must win game for Veikkausliiga team RoPS as they have only managed to get 4 points from their opening 3 matches. Their last match is also against KuPS who will be the toughest opponent in this group. They started well and beat MuSa easily 0-6 but then lost 1-2 to PS Kemi and managed only a 1-1 draw against Ykkönen team AC Oulu. The team has changed quite a bit from last season with also a new head coach so some inconsistency was expected. They have a chance to go through from this group but that would require at least 6 points from their final two games and even that might not be enough.

Ykkönen team AC Kajaani beat in their opening game PS Kemi 0-2 but as they used an unlicensed player, the match was given to PS Kemi 3-0. In their next games they lost 3-4 to AC Oulu and then 6-1 to KuPS. They have therefore lost their chance to progress anymore. Kajaani though has a good attacking team and they can score against anyone.

Starting Line ups:
RoPS: Reguero – Järvenpää, väisänen, Geffrard, Segava – Okkonen, Muinonen – Heikkilä, Moraes, Lappalainen – Roiha
Kajaani: Valtonen – Ukkola, Sallila, Vanhanen, Castaneda – Ramirez, Nuutinen, Räisänen, Florit – Kahelin, Ibiyomi


Initial prediction: With less space it is difficult to score. Under 3.5 goals.
