This match is played in Eckeröhallen where Mariehamn normally plays their Finnish Cup games so they are basically the home side here. If Mariehamn wins this match then they are guaranteed to finish at least 2nd. EIF also has a chance to qualify so any point here would be a positive result for them.

EIF plays in the Finnish Ykkönen (2nd tier). Their team has changed quite a lot from last season and it has taken them a while to put a competitive side together. Because of this they lost their opening match to  group leaders Inter 3-0. In their second match they beat fellow ykkönen side Klubi-04 2-3. EIF is a decent Ykkönen team this season. They should not fight for promotion but they should be good enough to avoid relegation.

This will be the last match in the group stage for IFK Mariehamn.  They beat both Honka Akatemia and Klubi-04 in their opening matches but had to settle for a draw against TPS. In their last game they were well beaten by FC Inter (2-4). IFK Mariehamn also has changed a lot from last season. They seem to have fixed some problem areas like goal scoring from last season but still they are not completely ready for the new season.

Starting Line ups:
EIF: El Moutacim – Akpini, Hocine, Limnell, Tabe – Nyström, Akseli, Sihvonen, Selander, Bushue – Estlander
MIFK: Nordqvist – Murnane, Kojola, Tatomirovic, Ekhalie – Mäkinen, Maripuu, Åsbrink, Fernandes – Sid, Kangaskolkka


I cannot see Mariehamn winning with two many goals, max 2 goals. But I do expect to see goals so over 3.5 goals in this match is the main pick.
