This is a big match regarding promotion. HIFK is right now fighting with EIF and KPV for the top positions but Oulu is “only” 8 points behind. A win here could still give them a boost towards their own promotion chase.

AC Oulu is a good home team and they are undefeated in their last 6 games. The home draw against Kajaani was disappointing, but they are still 5-4-1 at home, losing only to FC Haka. This is almost a must win for Oulu if they still wish to keep their promotion hopes alive.

HIFK does not like these long away trips. They lost their last trip to Oulu 3-1 and they have also lost to AC Kajaani and failed to beat KPV. This is an important game for them also as there are 3 teams within 2 points with only 8 rounds to go. HIFK is 4-2-3 away from home.
