This is an other big match today regarding relegation and promotion. Home team KPV is currently 3rd and 2 points behind 2nd placed HIFK and 5 points behind leaders EIF. AC Kajaani is 8th and currently 5 points ahead of the relegation zone with 7 rounds remaining.

KPV suffered a big 3-0 derby loss to rivals FF Jaro in the last round. Luckily for them HIFK also lost their own match so the difference is still only 2 points for the promotion playoffs spot. That loss to Jaro came away from home. At home KPV has been really solid. They have the best record (together with EIF) with 7 wins, 2 draws and only 1 loss. They will need this form to continue if they still wish to challenge for promotion.

AC Kajaani got a big win over FC KTP in the last round which boosted their survival hopes. They have now played 3 games without a defeat. The team has many foreign players and the core group can challenge against any team in this league. Unfortunately they do not have much depth so if they miss any of their key players, the lever drops. Also they have not been able to have the same form away from home as they have at home. They are 1-5-5 on the road this season.
