Our prediction for this Finland Veikkausliiga match:
KuPS will be aiming to build on back-to-back wins over SJK and Inter Turku when they take on Honka at Savon Sanomat Areena. KuPS footballers have regained a much-needed confidence, and they are surely capable of beating Honka at home ground. Head coach Simo Valakari should stick to the 3-4-3 formation. Vesa Vasara’s team, on the other hand, have been playing some low-scoring games of late.
Under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of Honka’s previous four league fixtures, and yet another low-scoring match is on the cards. In their last meeting in the Finnish top flight Honka recorded a 2-0 win over KuPS. Santeri Haarala is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts, while Brazil international Lucas Kaufmann should be deployed up front as Honka’s lone forward. Keep in mind that there have been under 2.5 goals in each of their previous three meetings in the elite division.
