This is another big match between the Champions and 2nd placed team from last season. They teams also met in the Finnish Cup on this stadium with HJK winning 2-0. HJK has started their season with 3 straight wins as KuPS is still looking for their first win after a draw and two losses. Last season HJK won all their matches against KuPS without conceding a goal.

HJK team news:

HJK has started their season strongly with 3 wins but they have had a bit of luck in all their matches. On Wednesday they beat SJK 0-1 in Seinäjoki. They were the better team despite their goal having a suspicion of offside. Last season they were the best home team with a 13-2-2 record and they look like achieving at least that also this season.

KuPS team news:

KuPS had a really good pre-season but now in the league they have failed to win any of their opening 3 games. All of their matches have been very even so they could have gone either way. On Wednesday they lost at home to RoPS with the last kick of the game. They have really been missing their key midfielder Ruben Gabriel as without him, their defense seems weaker. Also offensively they have a lot to improve.

Starting Line ups:

HJK: Rudakov – Pirinen, Vesiaho, Patronen, Rafinha – Mosa, Annan – Alho, Valencic, Riski – Klauss
KuPS: Virtanen – Murillo, Toivomäki, Rexhepi, Nissinen Saxman, Pennanen – Savolainen, El Said, Purje – Karjalainen

Prediction:

HJK to win to nil. HJK to win by exactly 1 goal.
