This is the big northern Derby “Jänkä-Derby” between the two most northern teams in the Veikkausliiga. RoPS has started the season with amazingly earning 3 straight wins. PS Kemi has played only twice and has 3 points. The teams met already in the Finnish Cup with PS Kemi winning 1-2. Last season both teams won once and once the match ended in a draw.

RoPS team news:

RoPS has had a great start to the season after wins over IFK Mariehamn, VPS and KuPS. The last two were also away from home which was a problem last season for them. More importantly they are the only team not to concede a goal so far. This will be already the 3rd match for RoPS inside 8 days. PS Kemi did not play during the week so they have a week´s rest advantage.

PS Kemi team news:

PS Kemi is expected to get relegated this season but no one has told them that. They started their season with a great 0-1 away win against SJK. In their next game they had to play on this Rovaniemi ground their home match against FC Inter which they lost 2-4. PS Kemi though always collects points from their early games so you have to be careful with them. They love to play as the underdog and hit you on the break and they will take points again like that this season.

Starting Line ups:

RoPS: Reguero – Taiwo, Väisänen, Hämäläinen, Järvenpää – Lingman, Wato – Lappalainen, Muinonen, Moraes – Ivanovski
PS Kemi: Vilmunen – Abubakr, Shevchenko, Manev, Mombilo – Isaksson, Vidjeskog, Guevara – Tano, Mäkelä, Heinolainen

Prediction:

RoPS to win by at least 2 goals. Vilmunen in goal for PS Kemi is much weaker than Forsman.
