Our prediction for this Finland Veikkausliiga match:
All eyes will be on Savon Sanomat Areena when KuPS and Helsinki face each other in the Veikkausliiga derby. Thanks to a 1-1 draw with SJK, KuPS regained top position in the standings and extended their unbeaten run to eight games. Arne Erlandsen’s troops aim to return to winning ways in the national championship, but beating the Finnish giants is easier said than done.
HJK are eyeing their third away win of the season, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. When the two teams met at Bolt Arena earlier in August, they played out a 2-2 draw, and yet another close encounter is on cards. A man to watch in the home team will be Ilmari Niskanen, while KuPS defenders should have duo Roope Riski – Tim Vayrynen at bay. The number of spectators in the Veikkausliiga derby will be limited due to the fierce of coronavirus spread.
