Our prediction for this Europa League match:
KuPS will be looking to a 2-1 league win over Honka when they host Vitebsk at Savon Sanomat Areena in the Europa League first qualifying round, first leg. The Finnish side have been producing fine performances in the national championship this season, with the team sitting in second position in the standings and that is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Vitebsk.
KuPS did well to crush Lahti 5-1 in their last home game in the Finnish top flight and seeing that the visitors do not seem to be on top of their game at the moment, home win should be considered. The Belarusian outfit sit in the bottom of the Belarusian Premier League standings and seeing that they failed to impress in back-to-back defeats to BATE Borisov and Vitebsk, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed.
