Odds 4.75 – 4.00 – 1.66 – Great odds on Ykkönen at Bet.RedKings.com
Another big game at the Ykkönen. This is a must win for both teams. Both teams are on top of the form table with FC Jazz hanging on to a miracle of survival and FF Jaro making a huge comeback since their change in head coach and are on route for promotion but only if they can keep winning. FC Jazz is last and have 10 points to survival with 6 games to go so they will need to win all of those in order to have any chance. In the last round they did an amazing come back from 2-0 down against leaders AC Oulu but only managed a 2-2 draw. FF Jaro have won their last 6 games and a win here would put them only 3 points from the top.
The teams have met twice this season at Pietarsaari with both teams winning once.
Starting line ups:
Jazz: Pirhonen – Starck, Virtanen, Nurminen, Välilä, Lehto, Mapoka, Sanchez, Junnila, Mäkelä, Lehtonen
Jaro: Öhberg – Maomba, Moore, Curinga, Brunell, Josue, Remesaho, Kronholm, Kula, P.niang, Morin
Neither team will want a draw so there will be attacking. Over 3.5 goals and Jaro to win.
