Haka vs KuPS
Finland – Veikkausliiga
Date: Friday, 14 August 2020
Kick-off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Tehtaan Kenttä (Valkeakoski).
Haka is yet to register a win in the league this season. Half of their eight winless games so far have ended in a defeat, while three of those losses came within the recent four fixtures. The host is on a two-game losing streak without even scoring a goal, following a 2-0 loss on the road against Inter Turku last time out in the league.
KuPS slide down to the third spot after dropping points in the recent three fixtures. After two consecutive draws, the 0-3 loss at home to the likes of HJK in the previous league clash was an actual blow to the reigning champions in the schedule.
But with an unbeaten streak away from home so far, the Keltamusta will come in hot for the three points.
Haka vs KuPS Head-to-head (h2h)
- Three of their recent five fixtures have ended in a draw.
- The visitor is unbeaten in their last seven meetings.
- Their previous encounter resulted in a 1-1 draw at Haka.
- The host has recorded only one of the last five overall wins.
- Both teams have scored in three of the last five wins.
Haka vs KuPS Prediction
Haka’s winless run in the league and also in the h2h history with KuPS since 2012 will put them in a tough spot in the game. The host doesn’t enjoy any home ground advantage with their winless streak.
Besides, the reigning champions are 12 points ahead of the host after just 9 league appearances this season so far. And the promoted side also lacks in the league experience against the Keltamusta.
The home win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters in the clash. Building on that probability, the tip for KuPS to win either half will also be a suitable option for the ninety minutes.
