This is the opening game for the team to the 2018 Veikkausliiga season. KuPS finished 2nd last season and they seem to be fighting for similar positions this season. FC Honka got promoted after last season and they seem to be immediately going to be fighting in the top half.

KuPS team news:

KuPS had a very good pre-season and won all their games in the Finnish Cup until they met HJK in the quarterfinals in Helsinki and lost 2-0. Their main loss was striker Salami after last season but at least during pre-season, the goal scoring has not been an issue. With the new signings they have we feel they are the biggest challenger to HJK for the title this season.

FC Honka team news:

Honka finished 2nd in Ykkönen last season and got promoted after knocking out HIFK in the promotion playouts. For this season they have gotten plenty of new players and they look really up for the challenge. They also won all their games in the Finnish Cup until losing 2-1 to HJK in the Semi-Final. They did beat HJK in the group stage though. If you compare them to the other promoted team, TPS, Honka is more ready for this level. Many of their players have played in the Veikkausliiga before so the step in level wont be an issue.

 

Prediction:

Both teams to score is the main pick. This looks like a draw.
