The KuPS vs VPS match will be played on Wednesday, June 14, at the Savon Sanomat Arena, Kuopio. KuPS is currently 4th on Veikkausliiga table with 18 points, while VPS is 2nd on the table with 19 points at the moment. KuPS also has a game in hand.


  • KuPS won only one out of their last four games in the league. In that period, they failed to score more than one goal in a single match. Last weekend, they suffered a first defeat in the league after six games.
  • VPS has a series of three games without a defeat in the league. However, they also failed to score more than one goal in four consecutive matches. VPS lost only one away game in the league so far.


In their previous 10  meetings, KuPS recorded 4 victories, VPS won 2 games, while 4 matches ended in a draw. In 8 out of those 10 games, we saw under 3.5 goals, while in 4 matches we saw under 1.5 goals. Also, KuPS is in a series of 5 games without a defeat against VPS.


KuPS surprisingly lost the home game against Mariehamn last week, and they missed the opportunity to climb to the second position on the table. They will have another shot at it in the upcoming game, but they have to defeat VPS. The form and tradition are on their side, but in derby matches like this, everything is possible.

VPS recorded two draws in a row against the teams from the lower part of the table. They are in a crisis, but a victory against the team that fights for the place in the top three would be a huge confidence booster for them.

19.05.2017 Veik JJK Jyvaskyla Vaasa PS 1:4 W


Both of these teams struggled to score a goal recently, and it seems they might settle for a draw. KuPS is the favorite because of tradition, though.
