This is the big game this Monday. RoPS who are 2nd will face KuPS who are 3rd. The difference between the teams is 8 points with 6 games to go.

Both teams are in really good form. RoPS has 4 wins and a draw from their last 5 games. KuPS has four wins and a loss to league leaders HJK in their last 5 games.
