This match has finished. To watch current games go to the sections Today's Football Predictions, Football Betting Prediction for Tomorrow or Football Predictions for the Weekend.

After an eight-match winning streak across all competitions, KuPS are winless in their last two and will target a return to victory this week. They host a HIFK side currently on a four-match winless run of their own, in what has been an inconsistent league campaign to date.

Given their European commitments, KuPS can go top of Finland's Veikkausliiga if they prevail on this occasion – something that shouldn't be too difficult, judging by their H2H record.

It'll be interesting to see how both approach this clash after recording 1-1 draws during their most recent league matches. Can either side snatch all three points? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

KuPS vs HIFK Betting Tips

They say all good things must, eventually, come to an end and that's certainly the case for KuPS. Their gutsy European run to this season's Europa League group stages was ended at the final hurdle by Romanian side Cluj last week.

They followed that by dropping points against fifth-placed Ilves last weekend, who HIFK can leapfrog with a victory here. It means this encounter is even more important than usual, as they look to finish the campaign strong while putting themselves in a good position for the championship rounds.

HIFK, who were relegated in 2017 and returned last season, finished top of the relegation round. It's clear they don't want to find themselves in that situation again under new head coach Teemu Kankkunen.

They conceded in heartbreaking fashion on October 2, a stoppage-time equaliser against FC Honka (4th) – so will want a determined response against tougher opposition.

Watch out for Brazilian winger Vitinho, who has scored or assisted in each of his last three appearances. The 22-year-old could prove decisive as they target a surprise victory here.

KuPS vs HIFK Correct Score Predictions

As I alluded to earlier, it's difficult to look past KuPS emerging victorious here – largely because of their superior H2H record. In 13 previous meetings, HIFK have one win and drawn three against a side that are serious title challengers this season. It'd be a surprise if they dropped points again.
