OPS surprised everyone by beating GrIFK in their opening match last weekend 0-2. OPS had been poor the whole pre-season and looked like destined for relegation but they have brought in several foreign players who have lifted the level of the team and now everything is possible. Gnistan will make their second trip to Oulu in a short time period. They lost their opening game to AC Oulu 1-0 on that pitch despite playing the last 10 minutes with a man-advantage. They then lost 0-2 to Esport Honka on Monday in a match that was played on the artificial turf of Telia 5G Arena which is not their normal home arena. Gnistan has a solid defense but their CB Riku Selander got a Red Card in their last game so he will be a miss. Offensively they have not created much and will struggle to score.

OPS will miss Joona Juntunen from this game. All others are available.

Starting line ups:
OPS: Pennanen – Jibrin, Ouattara, Seidou – Rounaja, Lämsä, Juntunen M, Trinidade, Orishani – Nzekwe, Belov
Gnistan: Kollar – Anyamele, Kaukomaa, Vaarakallio, Hyökyvirta – Zolameso, Heimonen, Strandvall, Forsen, Koskinen – Akbar

Prediction:

OPS has good enough individuals to win this game so the home win is the main bet but a small bet for 0-0 to cover.
