KPV are one of the teams looking for promotion and have started the season well. They met GrIFK in the opening game but the game was called off at half time when the score was 0-0 due to bad weather. After that they beat TPS at home 2-1 and played a 1-1 draw away against the league favourites Honka. They played just 3 days ago against GrIFK in Kokkola and won 1-0. They were totally dominant in this match and should have scored more goals. GrIFK barely had any chances in the match. KPV has had a lot of players out injured but they should get a couple of them back to this match. Also Aki Sipilä might return.

Newly promoted Gnistan is still without a win. Their only point in 4 games has come from their 1-1 draw away to OPS. Gnistan has had a lot of injuries this season and they will miss Teemu Pastila, Jesse Ahonen, Valte Vuorela and Patrick Aaltonen from this game. Important midfielder Marcus Heimonen returns and they also loaned from HIFK striker Antti Ulmanen.

This match is played on artificial turf which is not the normal home field for KPV as their natural grass stadium is not in good condition yet.

Starting line ups:
KPV: Myllymäki – Myntti, Rauhala, Josimov, Shevchenko – Cozar, Savic, Mravec – Sirbiladze, Schwalenstöcker, Tshibasu
Gnistan: Otronen – Aaltonen, Vaarakallio, Hyökyvirta – Selander, Fortunato, Jouini, Akbar, Tirkkonen, Koskinen – Ulmanen

Prediction:

Gnistan rarely scores goals but with KPV just playing 3 days ago, Gnistan will have a chance to score. Both teams to score with 2.11 odds is the main bet. KPV should win though.
