KuPS vs SJK 2018 Veikkausliiga 30 June 2018 by LeagueLane

Finland Veikkausliiga
Date: Saturday, 30 June 2018
Kick-Off at 13:00 UK
Venue: Savon Sanomat Arena (Kuopio).

KuPS are going to host relegation-strapped SJK in the 17th round of Finnish Veikkausliiga on Saturday afternoon. The home team is one of the candidates for the place in European cups next season, however their form dropped lately.

In the last five matches, they managed to book just one victory and they slipped down on the table a bit. Rasmus Karjalainen and the lads have been very productive in front of the oppositions’ goal, however their defending is not at the satisfactory level as they allowed too many goals.

SJK are having troubles of keeping their heads above the water as they are just one point ahead of the relegation zone. They are in a bad streak of three straight defeats and Aleksey Eremenko’s side needs to look for the improvement urgently.

The away side should focus on improving their attacking work as they are one of the most inefficient teams in the competition.

KuPS vs SJK Head-to-head

KuPS managed to break the winless record of their rivals which lasted for nine games with two straight victories. Their clashes have been pretty inefficient generally, however in the last tow the crowd was able to enjoy goals in both nets.

KuPS vs SJK Prediction

Although they haven’t been in fine form lately, KuPS should be able to get back on winning track and keep challenging the top three spots. SJK have better head to head record, however they shouldn’t be able to get anything from this one.

Every KuPS win has been followed by the high number of goals and we are expecting the same in this one. The hosts are very productive in the front and capable of conceding as well, so we can expect at least three goals.
