Veikkausliiga Round Seven preview

TamU v KTP

Sheweleff is the only absentee for TamU, Ikavalko for KTP in this relegation six-pointer. IF this isn’t a home win I’ll be surprised, but not so surprised that the odds on ladbrokes make sense. TamU are awful right now, and so are KTP. Anything could happen, and KTP are under significantly less pressure.

Honka v HJK

Koskinen and Haarala are out for Honka, Taulo for HJK. It’s a local derby, but HJK looked quite impressive the other day. It’s on UTV at 7pm.

Mariehamn v KuPS

IFK are missing Norrmén, Sjölund, Rikama, Isaksson, Ochieng, Binnion, Carlsson D, and Carlsson J. KuPS are without Kinnaslampi. KuPS have slightly better form and have done okay away from home.

Inter v VPS

Furuholm is out for Inter, VPS are at full strength. Funny feeling about this one, it’ll be an interesting test for Tim Sparv. I wish I could go and see it actually.

RoPS v TPS

TPS still have their midfielders out: Cleaver, Valakari, Sarajärvi, Heinikangas and Ääritalo. RoPS will be without Bauer. I expect RoPS to win.

Jaro v Haka

Kalle Parviainen is seeing a doctor today about the injury he picked up against MyPa, so haka’s defence will be weak. Jaro are without Jens Portin and Junnila, but they played okay against TPS despite losing 4-0. With Haka’s confidence very low, they could crumble once again if the first goal goes against them. With Popovitch anything is possible, and so long as Minninen is there to help provide an attacking focus Haka have a chance.

MyPa v Lahti

Äijälä and Agboh are out for MyPa. Vanninen and Shala will be missing from the Lahti squad. This is a big local derby, with Rafael returning to his former club, and should be a good atmosphere.
