Bottom club PS Kemi surprised KuPS in the last round and now they will want to do it again against another top team FC Lahti. FC Lahti is 4th currently but they have played only 10 games and can go 2nd with a win here.

PS Kemi has not had the best of seasons but they have won their first game and their currently last game. They are bottom of the league with 7 points. A win here though would move them to 9th position and out of the relegation zone. PS Kemi has scored 13 goals this season which is the 5th highest in the league but despite this, their goal difference is -10. They have conceded the most goals this season and this is what their head coach Jari Åhman will want to change. They have conceded too many easy and unnecessary goals and if they can get that sorted out, their performances would be better. This is only the 2nd home match for PS Kemi on their own stadium Sauvosaari this season. That is one reason they have no home wins.

FC Lahti has been really good so far this season. They have benefited on the fact that they have not played as many games as their main opponents. Both HJK and KuPS have played 3 games more. Lahti has been able to play more rested and that is one of the reasons they have lost only one game this season. They have a very good defensive record with only 8 goals conceded. That is the least amount of goals together with RoPS. They play with a defensive style, sometimes with 3 or 4 at the back. Offensively they are ok but they have only won one game with more than 1 goal.
