MuSa started their Finnish cup by losing to Veikkausliiga sideKuPS 5-2 last week. This is the first match for RoPS. MuSa is one of the better teams in Kakkonen and RoPS finished in the mid-table in Veikkausliiga last season.

MuSa lost their opening game 5-2 but they got a lot of praise even from KuPS for their active ball control play. They did not go to Kuopio to defend but to play with their own strengths. They created a lot of chances in Kuopio and with better finishing they could have scored even more than 2 goals. This is what they want to continue today against RoPS. Now they have one extra week of training behind then and they are ready to surprise.

This will be the first competitive match for RoPS and the first official game in charge for new head coach Toni Koskela. They did play a friendly last week against OPS where they won 6-1. One noteworthy thing about this game though that it was played on a field that does not meet the necessary length requirements. RoPS will have all their contracted players in this match (15 + 2 goalkeepers) including their new Brazilian Caliman who will play in 4 Cup games before they agree a contract.

The teams have not met before.

Starting Line ups:
MuSa: Mikkelsson – Karlsson, Fatoghoma, Salminen, Välilä – Pihlainen, Rantala, Junnila, Dieter – Rantala S, Mäkelä
RoPS: Kangas – Järvenpää, Väisänen, Geffrard, Segawa – Okkonen, Lingman – Pyyny, Muinonen, Lappalainen – Roiha

Prediction:

The main pick here is goals so over 3.5 is the main pick but MuSa can also cause an upset here sor MuSa +1AH as a side bet.
