This is already a relegation battle between a newly promoted Honka and bottom club PS Kemi. Both teams have managed only 1 win so far this season but the difference has been that Honka has lost only one also whereas PS Kemi has lost 5.

It is easy to see what is the biggest problem with Honka right now. When you have lost only 1 game but you still have only 8 points from 7 games, you know the problem is in scoring goals. Their main striker was supposed to be Masar Ömer but he got injured. They got a Serbian Obradovic, but he has not been the right guy to bang in the goals. Rahimi also is not a big goalscorer. Their latest signing is Macoumba Kandji who immediately helped them get their first (only) win of the season but he then missed the next two due to injury. They have a clear playing style where they like to have possession but that is not good enough if you cannot score. They can easily be a Top-6 team in this league as long as they solve the goal scoring problems.

PS Kemi was expected to be in the bottom this season and they are at the bottom with only 4 points from 7 matches. They can score goals but their defending has been abysmal. 17 Goals conceded in 7 games is just way too much. If they do not sort this out, they are looking at relegation. Despite that bad defending, their team is not that bad. They are a team who can surprise anyone with a good solid defense and hitting a couple from counter attack. Because of this, we think the value in this match is with the visitors.
