This is a Pohjanmaa Derby match. VPS had a great last season as they finished 4th and qualified for Europe. Most of the same players continued after last season but they still lost some and have not really gotten any new replacements with the exception on goal. Their issues last season was that they did  not score many goals. That has not shown however in their first two matches in the Cup. They beat 2nd Division side FC Jazz 5-1 and 3rd Division side SJK- Academy 3-7. Now though they will face a much more difficult opponent.

FF Jaro has also won twice in the Cup so far and this match could really decide the winner of this group. Jaro struggled a bit in their opening game against 2nd Division team MuSa but beat them 2-0 in the end. Last week though they surprised everyone and beat the current Finnish Cup holders SJK 2-1 in Pietarsaari. Last season FF Jaro wanted to get back to the Veikkausliiga but their bad start to the season caused them the promotion. After they changed their head coach, they were the best team in that Division but just could not make enough points for a comeback. Now they will be again one of the favourites to get promotion.
