Odds 2.25 – 3.10 – 3.10 – Bet NOW at RedKings

Both teams are looking for continuing their winning streaks. KuPS has won their last 3 matches and are definitely in form. They have scored 8 goals in their last 3 games so their offense works. Their defense is still conceding goals but only 1 in each of those 3 matches.

SJK had a slow start but they have now won their last 2 matches against JJK and RoPS. They will want to get their 3rd win in a row but now the opponent will be the hardest they have met so far. SJK had defensive problems in the beginning of the season but since they got back their key player DM Mehmet Hetemaj, they have kept 2 clean sheets in a row. Goal scoring also was an issue for them but 3 goals against RoPS was a good achivement especially as their main striker Mboma finally scored. SJK will miss only Matej Hradecky who will be out for the season. All other players are available and as there are many games within a short period of time, SJK said, there mightbe some rotation.

Last season the teams met 3 times in the league with SJK winning both home games 1-0 and the one match in Kuopio ending 0-0.

Starting line ups:
KuPS: Virtanen – Sorsa, Egwuekwe, Boxall, Rannankari – Reuben, Saxman- Savolainen, Nissilä, Purje – Salami
SJK: Aksalu – Hurme, Hatakka, Vales, Anton – Hetemaj, Laaksonen – Zeneli, Klinga, Facundo – Mboma


This should be  either a KuPS win or a draw. We consider them to be a better team than SJK but our main bet here is both teams to score. KuPS will start soon getting problems though as they have played with the similar players for most of the matches, not much rotation.
