This is the first official match of the season for both teams. PS Kemi finished 10th last season in the Veikkausliiga and AC Kajaani got promoted to the Ykkönen (2nd tier).

PS Kemi has had quite a few players leaving and quite a few coming in. Compared to last season, they have focused more on defensive players in their new signings and now they seem to have some depth in these positions. Offensively they lack a proper striker but sooner or later they will get one. From this match they will miss key players Guevara and Kaljumäe. Last season in the Finnish Cup group stage, they beat AC Oulu and HauPa. They drew with OPS and RoPS and lost only to KPV.

AC Kajaani is a team that has slowly improved each season and they will now play in the Ykkönen. The core team has remained the same from last season as the key player for each position is still with the team. Beyond that though they are looking at several players and they will use the Finnish Cup to try several test players.

Starting Line ups:
PS Kemi: Forsman – Heinolainen, Shevchenko, Mesqueu, Ölander -Isaksson, Lehto – Lipin, Tano, Moilanen – Isomäki
Kajaani:Valtonen – Castandeda, Sallila, Hoffren, Nuutinen – Aromaa – Järvinen, Ramirez, Räisäinen, Kahelin – Ibiyomi

Prediction:

This is a tricky game to predict as there is not much info on either team so far. Main pick is both teams to score but to look for a bit of value, AC Kajaani to score 2 or more goals with 3.70 odds looks decent.
