There are currently three teams fighting for the last Euro Cup spot and KuPS and Honka are two of them. Honka is currently holding that spot in 3rd position and they are two points ahead of KuPS. Both teams are also in good form as both have lost only once in their last seven matches.

KuPS has not been at their best at home in the Savon Sanomat Areena as they have only managed six wins out of 14 games. They just concede too many goals at home. They have not been able to keep a clean sheet in any of their home games. KuPS played really well in their last game against RoPS and were unlucky only to get a point in that 1-1 game. They played beautiful one touch football for long periods of time and RoPS only had a couple of chances to score. One of them was a mistake from the goalkeeper Otso Virtanen which allowed RoPS to come back to draw.

FC Honka is a decent away team as they have only lost three times on the road all season. However they have won only four times, so there is still room to improve. Winning four of their away games is the fifth worst record in the Veikkausliiga this season. Honka beat PS Kemi in their last match 2-1. They were the superior team in that match, but they struggled to find a way past that defense. Now they should get more chances.
