Firstly, this match will start actually 19:22. This is because this game will be the game where TPS will celebrate their 95th year of existence (established 1922).

Besides this, it will be a big game for both teams. KPV leads the league with only 1 loss in the opening 10 games and are really going for promotion. TPS started slowly by losing their opening 2 games but have since gone 8 games undefeated (5W and 3D). They are currently 3rd with 5 points behind leaders KPV. As only the winner gets promoted directly and the 2nd will go to the play-offs, TPS cannot afford to lose this game.

We have two different types of teams here. TPS likes and needs in this case to hold the ball more and keep the ball on the ground. KPV has bigger and stronger players who are good in the air thus very dangerous in set pieces. KPV also likes to play more direct football but they have added more variations from last season which makes them more dangerous and better. TPS relies on good domestic players. Young, talented ones with a lot of energy together with players like Captain Hyyrynen who have a lot of experience also from the Veikkausliiga. KPV has a lot of good foreign players with huge amount of skill and who could play on a higher level. All in all, this should be a good match.

TPS will miss only Waltteri Peltola. KPV will miss Nando but Heiermann and Myntti return to the line-up.

The teams played once this season in Kokkola with KPV winning 2-1. This match was early in the season and since then both teams have developed a lot. Last season TPS won the first two games in Turku and Kokkola before losing at home the last one. There were plently of goals in all those games.

Prediction:

This game should have goals. TPS defense is really good but KPV hast the height in their offense to cause problems. On the other hand TPS at home is very dangerous and can score goals. Initial pick is over 3.0 goals.
