RoPS is currently 9th with 31 points. They do not have much chances for promotion but also not much chance for relegation anymore. SJK is 5th and only 4 points from the top-3.

RoPS has played two tight games in the last rounds but have lost them both. They led for a long time against Ilves but lost in the end after Tuco scored a hat-trick 3-2. They have struggled all season with many changes in their starting line ups but they always managed to put on a team that fights and is difficult to beat. At home they have been good with a 7-1-5 record. RoPS will miss from this match key defender Ivan Tatomirovic who is suspended.

SJK sacked their head coach before their previous match and it seemed to help as they beat VPS 2-1. They had lost the previous two matches so this win was a big deal. This is a big match for them if they want to finish in the Top-3. They can also get into Europe by winning the Cup final which will be played next week. On the road, SJK has been 5-2-5 this season. SJK will get back Richie Dorman, Chema Anton, Sergi Arimany, Marc Vales and Vahid Hambo. SJK will miss Matti Klinga, Mehmet Hetemaj, Dani Hatakka and Matej Hradecky who are injured.

The teams have met three times this season with SJK winning all those matches. 0-2 in the Cup and 3-0 and 1-2 in the league.

Starting line ups:
RoPS: Reguero – Järvenpää, Väisänen, Hämäläinen, Nurmela – Okkonen, Will – Stavitski, Muinonen, Lappalainen – Roiha
SJK: Aksalu – Dorman, Mero, Bardanca, Tahvanainen – Malolo, Hradecky – Ions, Laaksonen, Zeneli – Mboma

Prediction:

RoPS is a good home team so the odds on home win are a bit too big. RoPS draw no bet is the main pick here.
