Honka vs KuPS
Finland – Veikkausliiga
Date: Saturday, 6 July 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Tapiolan Urheilupuisto (Espoo).
Both these squads are in the top-most tier of the table and are vying for the pole position. They have been in great form, and with them going against each other, a great battle is surely on the cards.
The teams are separated by a single point, and the victor will definitely get a strong footing on the runner-up position behind leaders Ilves.
KuPS has been having a great time on the road and has lost just a single game in that setting this whole season. They will find some confidence from the fact that hosts Honka had lost a match against the bottom-most KPV, in front of their home crowd.
The last day both took part in draws and will be particular to get back to winning ways. Especially since the victor will have a strong claim at the top of the table.

Honka vs KuPS Prediction
Honka was unbeaten in 24 of their last 28 matches, and in 12 of their last 15 at home. They also won four of their last six overall fixtures, and two of the last three in front of the home crowd. Importantly, against this opponent, they have been unbeaten in the last five years, and have lost just twice at home in the last 15 years.
Going on, they found the back of the net twice or more in four of the last six clashes, and at their home, they repeated the feat in 11 of their last 15 attempts. As such, a win for the hosts is on the cards. But taking into consideration the form of the guests, a clean sheet is an unlikely scenario.
KuPS found the back of the net in eight of their last ten games, and in seven of their last nine on the road. Moreover, five of the last six h2h ties and three of the last four had goals at either end of the pitch.
Backing the BTTS option should provide good returns.
