Tip Reasoning

Whilst most of the major European leagues are currently preparing for yet another long and arduous season, in the Scandinavian leagues the seasons are already well under way as they work around what can be pretty challenging weather conditions. This weekend, Finland’s top division, the Veikkausliiga, pits two of it’s early pace makers against each other as third placed FC Honka welcome fourth placed KuPS Kuopio to Tapiolan Urheilupuisto.

The hosts will be delighted with their start to the campaign and although they will appreciate that there is still plenty of football to be played, their return of 24 points from 13 games means that they are firmly in the title picture. FC Honka will know that the fact that they are the third highest scorers in the league has gone a long way to helping them get into this position, although they remain pretty strong at the back and have kept a clean sheet in three of their last five outings.

The side hoping to upset the party at Tapiolan Urheilupuisto this weekend is a KuPS Kuopio team who will also be delighted with the form they have shown so far and their 14 games has seen them yield 23 points. Like their hosts, their attack has been pivotal to their strong showing and the 23 goals scored makes them the second highest scorers in the Veikkausliiga. It is not as if that is slowing down either as their last three games has seen them hit the back of the net eight times.

With both sides knowing that three points can take them to the top of the table, providing other results go their way of course, they will both be looking to approach this match in a positive mindset. Given that neither side is particularly shy in front of goal, we think that the goal market is the place to be for this fixture and backing there to be over 2.5 goals scored looks to represent the best opportunity for a decent return.
