Match: RoPS vs HJK
Competition: Finland – Veikkausliiga
Time / Date: 18:30h / 1 June 2018
After two disappointing losses at the beginning of May, RoPS managed to stabilize their performance and won 5 points in the last three games. In that period, they played once as a host and took from KuPS 2-0 victory and recorded the other two points as guests of Lahti and Inter Turku in the last round. Against Turku, until the half-time, they led the game, but things turned in the second half where they safe the point.
Mika Lehkosuo’s players have performed very well in the last five games in the league where they have bagged five consecutive wins, but we must note that at that time they played against opponents who were not a big problem for HJK. Here in this game, The Club will show if can defend the title from last season against the second-placed RoPS (RoPS finish 7th last season).

In the last four games, RoPS as hosts have scored and allowed at least one goal. During this period they won one and lost two (1D).
Despite the surprise here from home team, Helsinki have more class on the two teams and in this game I can expect this to be clear. However, RoPS are hosts and we could hardly expect them to surrender without a fight, so win for HJK and goals in both ends is very possible to win.
