This is the first official match of the season for both teams. KPV finished 3rd in the Ykkönen last season and are one of the favourites for promotion again this season. TPV finished 5th in their Kakkonen group last season and will try to win promotion this season but it might be difficult.

KPV has gotten some really good players into their team as Ykkönen top scorer Kalle Multanen and Veikkausliiga player Patrick Poutianen signed with the club. They are really going for the promotion. Last season KPV won all their games in the Finnish Cup group stage eventually losing to Ilves 4-2 in the quarter finals. KPV has not played any friendlies yet so this will be their first game this season. According to their own match preview, they might use some younger players in this match as not all players are match fit yet.

TPV has changed quite a bit from last season as many experienced players have left the team. TPV is now younger but still they are a good side. Normally they are not that used to start their season this early but they have 17 players available and they have already played a couple of friendlies. They first beat TamU 3-1 and then drew 1-1 with Veikkausliiga side Ilves.

Starting Line ups:
KPV: Lelo – Rauhala, Josimov, Kääntä, Koskimaa – Saviranta, Ågren, Huuhka, Mäki – Nissinen, Multanen
TPV: Savolainen – Saarinen, Rantala, Mattila, Karimäki – Räisänen, Oksanen, Salonen, Ylinen – Riihimäki, Näykki

Prediction:

With TPV already having played a couple of friendlies, they can surprise here. TPV +1.5AH is the main pick.
