VPS started their season badly by losing their opening 2 games but ended that streak in their 3rd game by beating today´s opponent RoPS 2-4. Since then, VPS has lost only once and have climbed to 2nd position.  VPS believes in ball control and when it works, they can beat anyone. They will miss from this game only Sebastian Strandvall who is injured and Juho Lähde who is suspended.

RoPS has been one of the most inconsistent teams in the league. They either win or lose as they are yet to play a draw. They have a young and narrow squad and in order for them to beat teams, they require that they have all or at least most of their starters fit and playing. They had them in their last game where they beat FC Inter 2-0 at home. They should have all the same players available here also. RoPS is a high pressing team but for some reason this only works when they play at home. On the road, they have been the worst team in the league with 1 win and 4 losses. They will need to improve this record if they wish to fight for Euro Cup places this season.

Vaasa has been a very tough place to play for RoPS. The last time they won there in the league was in 2000. Last season VPS won both games there 1-0.

Starting line ups:
VPS: Meerits – Jurgenson, Lahti, Viitikko, Lampi – Engström, Sohna, Voutilainen, Hakola – Vahtera, Morrissey
RoPS: Reguero – Addy, Hämäläinen, Tatomirovic, Järvenpää – Okkonen, Muinonen – Ylätupa, Taylor, Roiha – Eze

Prediction:

VPS has not been playing so well at home but they should win this game. It will be close. VPS to win by 1 goal exactly. Both teams to score. Could be 2-1.
