HIFK suffered a 0-2 loss on Wednesday at home to SJK and their going into a small crisis. They have only 1 wins so far in the league and most worringly they have scored only 8 goals so far which is the lowest of all the teams in the league. They were missing important midfielder Mika Väyrynen from the previous match and he is also a doubt for this game. Tommi Vesala who had to play as a center back in the previous game also got injured and had to be stretchered off. He is also a doubt in this game. HIFK has some defenders injured but Kuusijärvi should be able to return to the starting line-up against Kemi.

PS Kemi is enjoying a good spell right now. On Wednesday they beat reigning champions IFK Mariehamn 3-0 at home and that win moved them to 9th position with a 5 points difference to the relegation spots and HIFK with a game in hand. This is why this match is very important to both teams. Kemi was expected to be fighting for relegation with HIFK but now have a chance to move 8 points ahead.

The teams met already this season once in Rovaniemi (Kemi pitch not good) and the match ended 0-0. Last season HIFK was the better team with 2 wins (Home and away) and one match in Helsinki ending 0-0.

Starting line ups:
HIFK:
PS Kemi:

Prediction:

This is an important game for both teams which again decreases the chances of goals. Under 2.5 goals is the initial pick but if Väyrynen does not play, then PS Kemi could be worth a shot.
