During the 2021/22 campaign, KuPS have only registered three stalemates, twice in the Veikkausliiga and once on their European adventures. On the other hand, Union Berlin comes into their third competitive fixture on the back of a stalemate against Bayer Leverkusen. The Iron Ones are still lacking match fitness and will look to play out a draw to finish the proceedings at the Stadion An der Alten Försterei. The visitors are unbeaten in their last nine games and we do not see them tasting defeat now.

Total Goals: Over 2.5

Union Berlin are famous for keeping affairs simple and scores low. In their two competitive outings, one in the Bundesliga and one in the DFB Pokal, Union Berlin have managed to keep the scoreline Under 2.5 goals. On the other hand, Kuopion Palloseura has been involved in high scoring affairs, with just one of their last five matches finishing with less than three goals. Urs Fischer will be well versed with the Finnish outfit's strengths and will send out the Berliners to cancel them out. However, with the German outfit still coming in their groove, we expect them to be involved in a high scoring affair.

Both Teams to Score: No

Only once in the last ten competitive fixtures have KuPS drawn a blank, that was nine matches ago. However, they have only kept four clean sheets in this period, the most recent of which came after a gap of four matches. This will give hope to Urs Fischer and Union Berlin will fancy their chances to get on the scoreboard at the Savon Sanomat Areena.

KuPS vs Union Berlin: Team News and Match Preview

Kuopion Palloseura

KuPS have improved their standing in the Veikkausliiga but the nine-point advantage accrued to HJK at the top of the points table will not sit well with Simo Valakari. The manager will want his side to close the gap with a  match in hand, however, all his attention will be on qualifying to the UEFA Europa Conference League at the expense of Union Berlin. Urho Nissila will be central to his plans with his proficiency in front of the goal that has provided them four goals that complements the six assists he has laid.

Union Berlin

It is still early days for Union Berlin who only have two competitive fixtures under their belt. They have been thrown at the deep end as they travel to the Savon Sanomat Areena for their crucial Europa Conference League group stage qualifying fixture against KuPS. While they still have their defensive acumen about themselves, Urs Fischer will want his forwards to prove themselves against the Finnish outfit. Taiwo Awoniyi opened his account for the campaign against Bayer Leverkusen and will be called upon to add to his tally.
