This is the last game in the group for leaders Ilves. FC Haka will still play 1 more after this match. This match is played at Pirkkahalli C where Ilves usually plays their home games.

FC Haka has played well in the Cup. Their only loss came against FC Lahti in the first match but it was a tight game and with a bit of luck, they could have gotten something. FC Haka still has a chance to go through from this group if they can beat JJK in their final match. If they could get at least a draw here also, that would most likely make it certain that they would be the best 3rd placed team of all the groups.

Veikkausliiga team Ilves has a chance to seal the group win with a win here. They have been playing really strong in this cup. Their only loss of points came in their last match where they drew with Lahti 2-2. However they were down 0-2 and managed to come back which showed character. Their team has changed a lot this season but with the new signings, they do look competitive. Maybe not as good as last season but still very good. After this they beat both Kakkonen teams GrIFK (2-3) and Viikingit (5-1).

Starting Line ups:
Haka: Marttinen – Kyöstilä, Malundama, Rantanen, Starck – Helminen, Popovitch, Thusberg, Clement – Lähdesmäki, Gerald
Ilves: Hilander – Rannankari, Tanska, Tomas, Ojala – Ala-Myllymäki, Ba, Tamminen, Hyökyvirta, Järvinen – Noubissi

Prediction:

Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals.
