RoPS is the surprise leader in the Veikkausliiga with 5 wins and 1 draw in their opening 6 games. They are also still yet to concede a goal. FC Honka is a newly promoted team still looking for their first win after 3 draws and 1 loss in their opening 4 matches.

RoPS has been very good so far this season. They have a new playing style which is based on ball possession. This is completely different to their style last season where they were more direct in looking for the goal. They have also taken really well the fact that this is their 7th match already since the start of the season so in 25 days. There could be some tiredness creeping in as they do not have much depth in their squad. So far at home they have been strong beating IFK Mariehamn, PS Kemi and FC Lahti in the process.

FC Honka just drew 2-2 at home with FC Lahti. They were leading right until the end but had to draw in the end which was probably a deserved result. They have played mostly well but they lack offensively especially as their forward Masar Ömer has been injured. They are a better team than what their results might suggest, still the pressure of getting that first win might start building up soon.

RoPS team news:

Starting Line ups:

RoPS: Reguero – Hyvärinen, Väisänen, Geffrard, Taiwo – Okkonen, Wato – Muinonen, Moraes, Lappalainen – Ivanovski
Honka: Murray – Laevuo, Rasimus, Ivanov, Saarinen – Levänen, Perovuo – Tchuimeni-Nimely, Martin, Liiikonen – Obradovic

Prediction:

RoPS might be a bit tired after all their games so Honka is definitely fresher. However they struggle to score goals and with RoPS having a great defense, we suspect under 2.5 goals.
