Both teams have some stake here. If Ilves wins, they are guaranteed to finish in the Top-3 and qualify to Europe for next season. If PS Kemi wins, they are guaranteed to avoid relegation.

Ilves is the 3rd best home team in the league. In their last 10 home games they have won 7, drawn 2 and lost only to HJK. That loss to HJK is their only one since July 1st. They are a tough team to beat. Now they will go for a win which would guarantee them a place in Europe for next season. Ilves will have all players available as Felipe Aspegren has recovered from his illness and Tuco has suffered his suspension.

PS Kemi has a 4 point gap to HIFK. If they can keep HIFK behind them in the last 2 rounds, they will play in the Veikkausliiga next season. otherwise they will have do a play off against the team that finishes 2nd in Ykkönen. PS Kemi played really poorly against HIFK two rounds ago. They improved in their home game against SJK but still in the end had to settle for a draw. Their defense just concedes too many goals. PS Kemi will have all players available except Marek Kaljumäe who is still injured.

The teams have met twice this season with Ilves losing to PS Kemi 2-4 at home. This loss sparked Ilves to do changes in the way they play and they started winning after this. The second match in Kemi ended in a draw.

Starting line-ups:
Ilves: Hilander – Mensah, Tanska, Penninkangas – Hynynen, Siira, Ala-Myllymäki, Ayarna, Järvinen – Tamminen, Tuco
Kemi: Forsman – Mansally, Laitinen, David, Nurmos – Ademi, Guevara, Jama, Tano – Mosnikov, Ceesay

Prediction:

Ilves to win with over 2.5 goals.
