Usman Sale (33') and Aniekpeno Udoh (85') scored for KuPS.
It’s been a rare occasion in recent times that RoPS haven’t conceded. It will be a concern for them that RoPS have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 6 of their previous 6 games, giving up 15 goals in the process.
Pre-game facts show that RoPS:
- haven't won against FC Honka in their last 3 matches in the league.

We’re of the view that RoPS will really need to work well to score goals against this FC Honka side who we reckon will manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a hard-fought 0-1 win for FC Honka at the end of the 90 minutes.
Will be interesting to see how this one goes.
