Ykkönen team EIF will move to 2nd position with a win here. Surprisingly if they then avoid a defeat in their final game against TPS, they will go through to the next round. Honka Akatemia has lost all their games so far without scoring goals and they have no chance to progress anymore. This match is played outdoors on artificial turf.

EIF has played three games so far with first losing easily to leaders FC Inter. They then beat Klubi-04 2-3. Their biggest win game during the weekend where they beat IFK Mariehamn 1-0 and now they are very close to qualifying to the next round. A win here could be enough if games in the other groups go their way. In any case a draw in their last match would be enough. EIF played really well against Mariehamn. Their defense held well against a stronger opponent and a goal from a free kick was enough to give them a win.

Honka Akatemia just got promoted to Kakkonen and as they cannot use any players from their senior team, their performances have not been the best. They were really good in Kolmonen last season and won promotion by 11 points. In their group in Kolmonen, they played against EIF´s reserve team who they beat 6-0 and 1-4. However they have never met the senior team. Their goal should here be only to score at least 1 goal. In their final group match against Inter, it will be so much more difficult.

Starting Line ups:
EIF: El Moutacim – Akpini, Hocine, Honkasalo, Limnell, Sevon – Tabe, Lindqvist, Ollila – Sihvonen, Selander
Honka: Paunio – Veijola, Väätäinen, Huovila, Kilic, Ishii, Nivala, Pasanen, Pulkkinen – Rämö, Haijzadeh

Prediction:

EIF to win with both teams to score.
