The Finnish champions of a couple of years ago, IFK Mariehamn has been in trouble all season long and are only two points ahead of the relegation zone. Newly promoted FC Honka has been in good form and is fighting for Euro Cup places this season. They are currently 3rd.

Lately the biggest problems for IFK has been in scoring goals. They have managed to score only six goals in their last 10 games. At the same time their defense has been leaking which has resulted in some losses. They acquired three new players during the transfer window but so far their performances have not improved. They did win their last home game 1-0 so they are hoping that they can do the same here.

Honka has lost only four times this season. They are very difficult to beat. At the beginning of the season their defense was good enough to earn points. Now its their offense which is good enough to win games. If they would have been scoring similarly at the beginning of the season, they would be challenging HJK for the title.
