TPS vs Gnistan by Jumanjiyo

It is round 26 in Finnish Ykkönen , there is only one more game left in the season after this Saturday where TPS hosts Gnistan. TPS in now 3 points clear of their closest followers Honka and the final round match up is Honka-TPS in Espoo. Currently, TPS sits 3 points clear off Honka and their goal difference is 3 goals better than Honka. Therefore, not only a win but a win with some margin is crucial for TPS before having some goals in pocket , in case of a loss in Honka next week.


Gnistan is also in a crucial positon to stay in the league where they have to win both remaining games and OPS should lose both. Even though they were closer to OPS in points, that still would not matter for me. They are no match up for TPS at this stage. Gnistan have lost to OPS away while leading at half time and saw 2 red cards and lost the game 2-1. In Round 25 they lost to relegated side GIFK 0-1 where GIFK had over 10 shots on their goal. At this national break , I doubt they had proper preparation for this game.


TPS is a team of system where young talents like Jakonen, Mettälä, Blomgvist, Valakari perform week in and out . And they have a great leader, Mikko Hyyrynen at the striker position. They play with 4-2-3-1 format with great energy on the wings and in midfield. Unorganized teams like Gnistan has no chance against this format. I have been watching every home game this season of TPS in the stadium, and the way they push the game forces errors at this level of football and ends up with victories most of the time.


In addition the organization is ready to go up to next level Veikkausliga with its sponsors. Having said that they have extended their contract with the head coach for another 2 years. Turku is ready for its second team in Veikkausliga and they will surely beat Gnistan and while doing that they will have some extra goal advantage in their pocket before their final game against
