Derry City vs KuPS match preview

Can Derry City establish a first leg lead to take with them to Finland?

In the first qualifying round, the Red and White Army narrowly overcame Havnar Bóltfelag, drawing 0-0 at Tórsvøllur before Sadou Diallo was the only scorer back in Ireland last Thursday.

This was the Candystripes’ first victory in UEFA competition for nine years, aiming to win multiple ties in the same season for the first time since 2006, dumped out by Paris Saint-Germain back then.

Kuopion Palloseura meantime, having retained the Suomen Cup in 2022, enter at this stage.

The Yellow-Blacks reached the play-off round in both 2020 and 2021, narrowly missing out on a group stage debut, making KuPS strong favourites to get through this one.

Thus, can Ruaidhrí Higgins’s team spring a surprise at Ryan McBride Brandywell Stadium?
