FC Lahti lost their first game of the season against a very young RoPS team in Rovaniemi. RoPS missed several key players but were able to beat Lahti 1-0. The problem for Lahti was their offense. They played the whole game with both Stenio and Simonovski up front and that just did not work. Both players are good players but are too similar to play at the same time. They could have created more chances if one of them would have started on the bench. KuPS came from behind to beat HIFK 2-1 and continued their fine start to the season. They have lost to both HJK and Ilves but have played really well in the other games and are 3rd with 10 points from 6 games.

We rate KuPS higher this season but FC Lahti is a good balanced team that can beat almost everyone as long as they get their offense going. This season the teams have met once in the Cup with KuPS winning 4-2. Last season KuPS won the first home game 2-0 and the next two ended in a draw.

FC Lahti will get back defender Igor Jovanovic and they will only miss long term injured Pavel Osipov. KuPS has all players available. This will be the first match for KuPS on natural grass this season.
