This is the first official match of the season for both teams. IFK Mariehamn is a top half Veikkausliiga team and Honka-Akatemia is the reserve team for Veikkausliiga team FC Honka and they got just promoted to the 2nd Division Kakkonen (3rd tier).

IFK Mariehamn has had quite a few changes for this season with many players leaving and many coming in. It will be like a fresh start to the team. They played a friendly against 3rd Division team FC Åland that they won 2-1. They started the game with 7 new players so it might take a bit of time before they start hitting on all cylinders.

Honka-Akatemia got promoted to the Kakkonen at the end of the last season and at the same time the team was moved under the main team Esport Honka as was their B-junior team. This allows much more cooperation between the clubs which will help them be more competitive in the future. The team consists of young future talents with a couple of additions who have experience from playing in the Kakkonen.

Starting Line ups:
MIFK: Nordqvist – Murnane, Kojola, Hemming, Sparrdal Mantilla – Mattsson, Petrovic, Åsbrink, Maripuu – Fernandes, Kangaskolkka
Honka: Ferayan – Sheikh, Ropa, Kiiski, Pulkkinen – Väätäinen, Kilic, Ishii, Nivala – Veijola, Rämö

Prediction:

Main pick here is both teams to score .
