KuPS won’t want a repeat of their last result here after the 2-0 Veikkausliiga losing effort in their last game against FC Inter Turku.
Kevin Kouassivi-Benissan (22') and Connor Ruane (65') scored for FC Inter Turku.
Over their prior 6 fixtures, Arne Erlandsen's KuPS have netted a total of 9 times, an average number of goals per match equal to 1.5.
Their past results show that KuPS:
- are unbeaten in the league by FC Honka in their previous 3 matches.
- have not beaten FC Honka in their previous 2 matches in the league.
- haven't been defeated in their previous 5 league matches at home.
FC Honka come into this encounter following on from a 1-0 Veikkausliiga win as they beat IFK Mariehamn in their most recent game.
The only scorer from FC Honka was Konsta Rasimus (33').
A succession of reliable displays by the FC Honka defence has resulted in their ‘goals against’ tally amounting to 4 from their previous 6 outings in total. During the same time, the number of goals that they have scored themselves is 6.
Leading up to this clash, FC Honka:
- have not lost to KuPS in games played away from home for the previous 4 matches in the league. A very decent away record against them.
- are unbeaten in their last 13 away league matches. It's hard to ask more than that.
- are without an away win for the past 2 league games.
Head to head
Looking over their prior head to head meetings dating back to 16/06/2018 tells us that KuPS have won 1 of them and FC Honka 2, with the tally of drawn games being 3.
15 goals were yielded between them throughout the course of those matches, with 6 for Keltamusta and 9 being from Honka. This gives an average number of goals per game equal to 2.5.
Team News: KuPS
KuPS boss Arne Erlandsen does not have any fitness worries whatsoever ahead of this game owing to a completely injury-free squad to pick from.
Team News: FC Honka
Owing to a completely healthy group available to select from, FC Honka manager Vesa Vasara has no fitness concerns to report ahead of this match.
We’re inclined to think that FC Honka might have a difficult job to breach the defence of this KuPS team who we think will win and very possibly keep a clean sheet.
That’s why we have predicted a very competitive game with a 1-0 victory for KuPS at the end of this game.
Should be an interesting one.
