Even though the season is still early, this is a big match towards avoiding relegation. PS Kemi is bottom of the league and they were also ranked to be in the bottom. TPS, who are a newly promoted team, was also ranked to be close to bottom and they find themselves on 11th position, just 1 point ahead of their hosts.

This match is yet again played on neutral ground as the pitch in Kemi is not in good condition yet. It is difficult for PS Kemi to get points from their home games while playing away from home. In their last game though they played really well against title holders HJK on this same pitch. The match was very even and they only lost to a defensive mistake where they failed to clear the ball from the box. They have had problems though and the team has not had the same defensive line-up on any game so far. This is one of the reasons why they have conceded already 15 goals in only 6 games. They produce enough in each game to score themselves but it is the defense that keeps them from earning points. They have now lost their last 5 games.

TPS has had some similar issues. They fight well but that fighting has not produced many points. Against VPS, they played well enough to earn at least a draw but their problems in scoring goals continued and they lost the match 0-1. They just cannot get their defense and offense to work at the same time. If the defense holds, then the offense does not score. When the offense scores, then the defense leaks. They are yet to find a balance in the team.
