Our prediction for this Finland Veikkausliiga match:
KuPS will be aiming to keep their title hopes alive when they face TPS at Savon Sanomat Areena on Saturday evening. KuPS quickly bounced back from a heart-breaking 3-0 loss to HJK, with the team outplaying both Haka and Mariehamn in the previous two league fixtures. Arne Erlandsen’s men are likely to stick to their attacking style of play, and given TPS’ away record, anything but a routine home win would be a major surprise.
Jonatan Johansson’s men did well to beat HIFK at home on Wednesday afternoon, but you should bear in mind that they have already suffered four defeats on the road in the new Veikkausliiga campaign. KuPS are after their fifth home win of the season, and we predict that they are going to get it in style. A man to watch in the home team will be talented midfielder Ilmari Niskanen, who has netted six goals so far this season.
