The surprise team of the season RoPS, will face newly promoted and bottom club team TPS at home. RoPS is currently 2nd. They are 9 points behind leaders HJK, but they have played two games less. TPS is bottom of the league with 9 points having won only once match so far.

RoPS has been playing pretty well recently and come to this match with a 3-game winning streak. They have been especially good at home with five wins and only two losses. Their biggest strength is their organised defense. They have conceded only 9 goals so far this season in 15 matches. They like to have ball control and when they lose the ball, they aggressively press to get it back. They are a very difficult team to beat. None of their losses so far have been with more than 1 goal.

TPS has struggled to score goals this season. They have only managed 10 goals which is by far the worst in the league. TPS is therefore looking to get reinforcements to that section when the transfer window opens up again. TPS is currently 1-1-4 in their away games but it is actually worse as their only win came at their own stadium against city rivals Inter. Actually away from home they have gotten only 1 point. TPS is not a bad team despite being bottom of the table. You cannot consider them like JJK from last season. They actually have a good playing system. It is just that the level of the players is not at Veikkausliiga level yet. All of their matches have been tight. Out of their losses, only 3 of them have been with more than 1 goal. TPS has been lately playing at home. This will be only their 2nd away match within exactly a month.
