KuPS – the shape of the team and its analysis

The "Canaries" have been unable to replicate their last championship success from 2019. In recent years, they have consistently finished just behind the perennial leaders of Finnish football, HJK. This season, with HJK struggling, KuPS has a chance to emerge from their shadow.

They started the new championship with an unbeaten streak, allowing them to hold the top spot. They have been on a winning streak since late spring, including a 4-1 victory over Oulu in the last round.

Haka – the shape of the team and its analysis

The "Black and Whites" are a modest team even by Finnish standards. Their last significant successes, including a championship and a cup win, were achieved in the mid-20th century. Recent results have been mediocre, with the team finishing 9th in 2023.

Currently, the club has an almost equal number of wins and losses, placing them mid-table in the Veikkausliiga. However, they suffered heavy away defeats in late spring, such as a 0-5 loss to Ilves. But they managed a 2-0 home victory over Mariehamn in the last round.
