KuPs to Win and Both Teams to Score

KuPS are considered among the best of the rest in the Veikkausliiga behind dominant champions HJK and Simo Valakari’s side have started to hit their stride in 2021 following a few early hiccups. KuPS can extend their winning streak to four games at Oulu’s expense on Thursday, though they have been prone to defensive lapses on the road where they have claimed just one clean sheet in four attempts and Oulu could nab a consolation.

Over 2.5 Goals

KuPS’s last seven league matches have averaged a healthy 3.0 goals per 90 minutes and their encounter with Oulu on Thursday could produce similar levels of excitement. Rock bottom Oulu have conceded over 2.0 goals per game since their promotion and they could be left chasing shadows by KuPS’s pacey frontline.

Over 1.5 KuPS Team Goals

KuPS finished as the Veikkausliiga’s second-highest scorers in 2020 and after a wobbly start to the fresh campaign they have found their feet in the final third. Oulu meanwhile, have conceded at least two goals in six of their opening seven fixtures of the campaign and KuPS have the quality up front to create plenty of chances against their host’s ramshackle rearguard.

Oulu vs KuPS: Match Preview

Oulu

Oulu were the bookmakers’ favourite for the drop before the 2021 Veikkausliiga season kicked-off, and the newly-promoted outfit have looked a level below the required standard in the top-flight so far. Jyrki Ahola’s troops did manage to win 3-1 at fellow strugglers KTP last time out, though the dearth of quality in their squad means that a prolonged spike in results is unlikely.

KuPS

A whole raft of new faces joined KuPS in the off-season though the club’s fresh personnel are gelling quickly with three-goal Urho Nissilä the pick of the bunch so far. Simo Valakari’s new-look team have won five of their first nine games of the season, though they will need to keep stringing the victories together to keep pace with Inter Turku and HJK further up the table.
