Newly promoted FC Honka will host 2nd placed KuPS in Espoo. FC Honka is undefeated at home for almost four years. Their last home loss was against VPS when they last played in the Veikkausliiga on 31st of August 2014. This covers all the games in Kakkonen, Ykkönen and now Veikkausliiga during this time.

FC Honka is 2-3-0 at home this season. They have been in good form recently with two wins, two draws and a loss in their last five games. It could have been more but two red cards in the match against HJK resulted in them losing a 0-2 lead to lose 3-2 in the end. Their form has improved the moment they learned how to score goals. In the start of the season they struggled with goals despite their defense holding. Now they are also scoring goals so they are a dangerous team.

KuPS is 2nd in the league but their performances have been inconsistent. They beat Ilves for the first time in years in the last round but that was helped by the fact that Ilves was playing with 9-men for a long part of the game. Before this they drew with bottom club TPS and lost to 2nd from bottom PS Kemi. There was a story in the papers yesterday that KuPS forward Urho Nissilä has just signed a contract with Belgian club Zulte-Waregem. He thus might not play in this match.
