KuPS vs JJK
Date: Thursday, 10th August 2017
Kick off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Savon Sanomat Areena.
KuPS will host JJK this Thursday in the encounter between the third strongest attacking line in the league and the weakest defense of the competition.
Everything points out to a straightforward game from the very first whistle and we can’t expect anything else but a convincing home win at Savon Sanomat Areena.
KuPS successfully bounced back after an away loss to SJK (1-0) on the last day of July as they bagged as many as three past RoPS at the weekend.
Jani Honkavaara and his side will thus have a fantastic opportunity to back up the fine display and claim yet another comprehensive win in front of their fans on Thursday when they host the rock-bottomed JJK side.
The immediate drop to the second tier of the Finnish football is harsh reality for the team led by Juha Pasoja.
It is interesting to see that Pasoja kept his job in spite of the fact his men took no more than nine points from 20 rounds of the competition.
They, however, still have theoretical chances of overtaking HIFK at the 11th position (currently five points away), but it would be a mountain to climb for Pasoja’s side.
KuPS vs JJK: Head to head
Ketut fans can certainly still remember the painful 9-1 defeat their team suffered to KuPS in January’s Suomen Cup fixture.
KuPS have been more than dominant in the recent head to head history as they have won four games on the trot prior to the goalless draw at Harjun Stadion in the first part of this Veikkausliiga term.
KuPS vs JJK: Prediction
As we stated in the introduction, this is going to be a one-way street from the first minute and we will back KuPS to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end at 8/13 odds as the top betting prediction.
