This is a match between two ball-control wanting teams, RoPS and VPS. The surprise team of the season, RoPS is currently 3rd with 21 points from 12 games. VPS is 7th with 15 points.

RoPS has been playing really well this season, well at least when they have been able to rest between games. They lack a bit of depth in the team so the tight schedule has hurt them on certain games. They have been very good at home where they have earned 4 wins and just 2 losses. They have one of the best defenses in the league with only 8 goals conceded in their 12 games. At home they have conceded only 4 goals and those are from both of their losing games against Honka and HJK. In the other four matches they have managed to keep a clean sheet.

VPS has not managed to get a win in their last 5 matches. Despite no wins, they have only lost once in those 5 matches. They are a difficult team to beat and because of this, they are still undefeated in their away games with 1 win and 3 draws. Defensively they have been ok but offensively they just cannot score goals. They have missed their key forwards Morrissey and Vahtera all season and their current striker Douglas Cae has failed to score any goals despite playing in 12 games.
