This is the penultimate game of the season for both teams. Home team PS Kemi will be relegated at the end of the season as they can no longer catch the team ahead of them. Their players are only playing for honor and for their jobs for next season. For sure they will not want to lose their last home game of the season. The visitors though have a lot at stake and a win here could secure them Veikkausliiga football also for next season if TPS fails to win their game. Anything but a win would put them close to the relegation playout position.

PS Kemi has had a hard season as they have sacked two head coaches already and still the performances have not improved. They now got rid of the shouting David Hannah so maybe the atmosphere inside the team would improve for these two remaining matches. Kemi is in bad form though having lost their last six games where they have struggled to score goals. In those six games they only found the net twice. Kemi has been the worst home team in the league with a 2-4-9 record.

IFK Mariehamn is in form as they have two wins and two draws from their last four games. This has given them the chance to hold their future in their own hands. Even though the team is in form, this will be a difficult game for them as they have been awful away from home this season. They have won only two games this season with overall earning only 10 points from 15 games. One of those wins though were here against Kemi.
