VPS managed to end their 6-game winless streak in the last round as they got a good away win against FC Inter. VPS is currently 7th with 18 points. IFK Mariehamn has lost their last three games and are without a win in their last six. They are currently 10th with 12 points.

VPS has had a lot of injuries this season and the team has suffered because of it. They have not been able to play with their best starting eleven even once this season so their performances have been very inconsistent. The moment they start to get back players from injury, especially offensive players, they should start to play a lot better. VPS is 2-3-3 at home this season so they have not been able to use home advantage.

IFK Mariehamn has had a similar problem as VPS with injuries, but they have been playing a lot worse with the squad that they have. They have by far the worse defensive record with 27 goals conceded. Offensively they are ok with 18 goals which is the 4th best record. They really miss Gabriel Petrovic in the midfield as without him, the whole defense is vulnerable. Also neither of their goalkeepers have been in good form so it would not be wild guess that Mariehamn will need to go shopping for new players when the transfer window opens up. Mariehamn is 1-2-3 so far on the road this season.
