It was an unsuccessful weekend for both TPS and KuPS Kuopio as they both come into this Friday evening’s clash on the back of a defeat. For TPS, it was a familiar story to what they have seen for a large part of the opening weeks of the season as they failed to capitalise on their chances and continued to look vulnerable at the back.
A youthful TPS proved to have lots still to learn at this new level and they fell to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Ilves at the weekend and that result leaves the side rooted to the bottom of the Veikkausliiga. Unfortunately for the hosts, we can only see there being more bad news on the horizon as we think they are set to lose out once again when they face off against KuPS Kuopio on Friday.
The visitors have been in pretty good shape so far this season and they currently find themselves in third place in the league. However, like their hosts, they also suffered defeat at the weekend as they suffered defeat to the side who was bottom at the time, PS Kemi. KuPS will be determined not to let lightning strike twice though and we think that they are likely to up their game in order to make sure of the three points.
We are not done there though, as we think that there is further opportunity for profit in this fixture. TPS have now played five matches in front of their own fans this season and, not only are they yet to record a win on home soil, they are also yet to even score at their own stadium.
This makes us believe that the visitors are set for a pretty comfortable evening and we think that backing them to win to nil is an excellent way to boost the potential return on offer.
