It’s been seldom in recent times that TPS Turku have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The facts show that Tepsi have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 matches, letting in 12 goals along the way.
Their past results show that TPS Turku:
- have left without a victory over FC Honka in their previous 4 league matches.
- have not won at home in their last 5 matches in the league. Fans are getting restless.
In their last fixture, FC Honka drew 0-0 in the Veikkausliiga tie with FC Lahti.
A run of resolute performances from the FC Honka defensive players has resulted in the number of goals they’ve conceded amounting to 3 from their last 6 clashes overall. Over that same time, the number of goals that they have scored themselves amounts to 6. That kind of pattern isn’t assured to be carried forward into this game, though.
Ahead of this meeting, FC Honka are winless against TPS Turku when they have played them away from home in the previous 2 league games.
Head to head

Team News: TPS Turku
TPS Turku manager Jonatan Johannson has a full complement, with no fitness concerns at all ahead of this game owing to a completely healthy squad to choose from.
Team News: FC Honka
Thanks to a mainly healthy squad, there’s just a single fitness worry for the FC Honka boss Vesa Vasara to be concerned with. Macoumba Kandji (Hamstring Injury) won’t be in action.
We’re inclined to think that TPS Turku will really need to work well to score goals against this FC Honka outfit who we think will score & stay on top.
That’s why our selection here is for a good tussle with a 0-1 advantage for FC Honka when the full-time whistle blows.
We’ll see what happens.
