This is the big game of the round with 4th placed KuPS hosting 2nd placed VPS in Kuopio. KuPS was on a 6-game undefeated streak (4-2-0) before their last round match at home to reigning Champions IFK Mariehamn. Mariehamn took their chances and held in the end to a 1-2 win. That was the 3rd loss for KuPS this season but the biggest loss in that game was what happened right at the end. KuPS scored a goal right at the end but it was disallowed. This made KuPS forwards Solomon Duah and Gbolahan Salami quite upset and instead of just arguing with the referee, they pushed him and both players were sent off with a straight red card. They will thus miss this game together with forward Urho Nissilä who is injured and will be out around 4 months. All 3 players are key players for the team with both Nissilä and Salami t6he top scorers with 4 goals each.

VPS started their season with two bad losses but have since gone 5-4-1 and are 2nd in the league. VPS has been exceptionally good playing away from home this season with their only loss coming in the opening round against HJK. They have since won 4 and drawn 2 of their away games. They have conceded 18 goals this season which is the 4th highest in the league but most of those goals came in the opening rounds. In their last 8 games, they have conceded only 6 goals.

Last season both teams beat each other once at home and the last match in Vaasa ended in a draw. The teams have met once this season already in Vaasa with the match ending 2-2 in April.

Starting line ups:
KuPS: Virtanen –  Rannankari, Egwuegwe, Boxall, Sorsa  – Gabriel, Saxman – Niskanen, Purje, Savolainen – Mäkelä
VPS: Meerits – Koskimaa, Lahti, Lampi- Engström, Voutilainen, Lähde, Levänen, Hakola – Vahtera, Morrissey

Prediction:

With all the missing players for KuPS, the value is on the visitors. A low scoring game with VPS draw no bet.
