RoPS vs KPV
Finland – Veikkausliiga
Date: Saturday, 29 June 2019
Kick-off at 20:15 UK/ 21:15 CET
Venue: Keskuskentta (Rovaniemi).
These two teams might be placed at the bottom-most of the table. In spite of that, there’s a gulf of difference between these sides. RoPS has more than double the number of points on the board than their opposite number.
Either side had to take on two of the best groups in the competition the last match-day. KPV took on Ilves, on the road, and expectedly faced a tough 4-2 loss.
It was an unlucky defeat though, as both goals of the visitors had given them the lead at the time. Only, they were not able to hold on to it. Each of their goals came in the starting phase of the two halves, but the hosts equalized both goals, and later added two more to complete the 4-2 scorecard.
Rovaniemi fought till the end and almost delivered an upset to the topper of the table, Honka, on the road. The deadlock was not broken till late into the tie, in the 80th minute, and the two squads had searched desperately for a goal. Finally, the hosts had some luck turn up, as their hard work got rewarded with a penalty, which was easily converted. The tie ended 1-0, in favor of the hosts.
