This is the penultimate game of the season for both teams. Home team VPS is still fighting for a Top-6 spot which would give them an extra home game for the next season but it is the visitors RoPS who have the bigger motivation. They are currently 2nd with a 4 point difference to both Honka and KuPS. A win here would guarantee that RoPS would finish 2nd and also give them European football for next season.

VPS has had a very inconsistent season but they are still on 6th position with a 2 points difference to FC Inter. If they can hold Inter behind them in the final two games, they will have an extra home game for next season. However their form is not good as they have gotten only 1 win from their last 11 games and even that was against bottom club PS Kemi. At home they have not won in five games and their overall home record is 4-5-6 which is the 2nd worse home record in the league.

RoPS has had a great season and a win here would cap it off and give them the silver medals but more importantly it would give them European football for next season.  RoPS lost to both HJK and SJK at the end of September but those were their only losses in the last 10 games. In the last round they earned a good away win against TPS. RoPS has been a very good away team this season with a 7-6-3 record which is the 2nd best in the league.
