This is  huge match regarding promotion. Both teams are tied with 39 points and they are 4 points behind leaders KPV with a game in hand. The one who wins this match will have a great chance for promotion or at least promotion playoffs. The loser will have to wait for the top two teams to screw up in the last 4 matches.

EIF has been excellent at home with a 7-2-1 home record. Their only loss have come to AC Oulu. But the team is in bad form having lost their last two games to KPV and JJK. In those games they conceded 5 goals which is huge when you think that during the whole season they conceded only 20 goals.

HIFK got a win in their last game which ended their two game losing streak. They were the main favourite for promotion so they cannot afford to lose this. They have not been that good away from home with a 4-2-4 record.
