This is  big game for both teams. TPS is on form and they just got out of the relegation zone and they want to keep it that way. RoPS is still second but the chasing pack of KuPS, FC Honka and Ilves are only 4 points away. They still need points before they can start celebrating a Euro Cup position.

Ever since TPS got Sterling Yateke as their main striker, their performances have improved. They have more scoring chances and they use them well. Especially at home they have been strong as they have won five out of their last six home matches. They also managed to break their away game curse in the last round against FC Lahti as they won their first game outside of the Veritas stadium. This will give them more confidence for the remaining matches.

RoPS has lost their last two games and they have had some serious defensive problems with injuries and suspensions. They sold their defender Leo Väisänen to Dutch team Den Bosch and that has been a big hit for them. He was the guy who was good with his feet and was able to start attacks from the back. With injuries, RoPS has really missed him in their squad. RoPS has been good on the road this season with a 6-6-3 record.
