PS Kemi is a team that was speculated to be fighting to avoid relegation and they are still in 10th position but their recent games have been encouraging. They have gotten 7 points from their last 4 games. They enjoy being the underdog as they have players who can do good counter attacks. This is why they beat Ilves and Inter away scoring 7 goals in total. Against teams who defend low, they have struggled to score against. In their last match they were the favourites against bottom club JJK but failed to beat them (1-1). They could not use their best tool (counter attacking) against them.

IFK Mariehamn started the season poorly but have since improved. After losing at home to FC Lahti, they have earned 7 points in their last 3 games, defeating KuPS and RoPS and a draw away with SJK. Their defense still needs improving but at least their offense has been able to score goals. A win here for Mariehamn could move them to 2nd position and back to fighting for Euro Cup places.

The teams met 3 times last season and once this season and IFK Mariehamn has won all matches.

Starting line ups:
PS Kemi: Forsman- Nurmos, kaljumäe, Laitinen, Mansally – Ojala, Jama, Guevara – Karjalainen, CEESAY, Valencic
Mariehamn: Vaikla- Friberg, Lyyski, Kojola, Mäenpää – Ekhalie, Petrovic, Spardal, Span – Sellinn, Amani

Prediction:

The playing style of IFK Mariehamn does not suit PS Kemi. IFK defends low which will prevent Kemi of using their counter attacks and thus to score goals. PS Kemi defense themselves can easily concede so away win. Low stakes as Mariehamn missing Kangaskolkka
