Veikkausliiga team KuPS leads the Group A after beating MuSa at home 5-2 and PS Kemi away rom home 1-3.  Ykkönen team AC Kajaani initially beat PS Kemi 0-2 but that win was later turned into a 3-0 loss after they played with a player who was not eligible. In their second game they lost 3-4 at home to AC Oulu

KuPS finished 2nd in the Veikkausliiga last season and they have gotten some good transfers in so they are definitely at least as good or even better than last season. They have earned a couple of good wins in the Cup despite rotating their players. Defensively they still need to improve as they conceded in both games. KuPS will have their new signings Murillo and Toivomäki available in this match.

AC Kajaani got promoted to the Ykkönen after last season and they are right in the middle of rebuilding their team. They play nice attacking football but still their squad lacks in depth. They beat PS Kemi nicely but unfortunately their Mexican midfielder Castaneda was not eligible for the match after he had not given a work permit yet. Thus they have 2 losses from their 2 games.

Starting Line ups:
KuPS: Virtanen – Murillo, Tabi Manga, Kytilä, Nissinen – Saxman, Nissilä – Niskanen, Pennanen, Savolainen – Mäkelä
Kajaani: Tuomarila – Castaneda, Ruuskanen, Hoffren, Nuutinen – Koutala, Florit, Ramirez, Kahelin – Räisänen, Ibiyomi

Prediction:

Initial prediction: KuPS to win with both teams to score.
