KuPS take on the visitors HJK at “Savon Sanomat Areena” in the matchday 13 of the Veikkausliiga. The game will be played in Kuopio on Sunday, June 18th.
KuPS lost only two out of 10 last encounters in this season, although the team has won four times and got four draws during that period. “Keltamusta” come up to the home clash with three-game no-win series, having got one defeat and two draws. Despite disappointing run, KuPS sit on the third place in the Veikkausliiga table with 19 points taken and 17-14 goal difference. Marko Rajamaki‘s squad participated in six matches at its own turf resulting in eight points earned, eight goals for and eight goals against plus it got two triumphs, two draws and two losses. Amazing stability!

HJK come up to the next battle in the elite division with seven-clash undefeated streak covering five victories and two draws. The winning series of Mika Lehkosuo’s team counts for three encounters with 14:1 aggregated score. After 13 gameweeks played, HJK is leading in the standings with 28 points earned and 32-6 goal difference being eight points ahead of the closest chaser. In seven matches on the road HJK picked up 12 points with 12 goals for and five goals against.
Historically, HJK demonstrate successful results against KuPS. In 2017 Mika Lehkosuo’s side broke the upcoming opponent with 2:0 scoreline at the home field. I believe that the forthcoming battle between two leaders of the season will be exciting with not many goals scored in it.
Prediction for the match: Under 3.0 scored goals.
