Two newly promoted teams meet in Espoo. TPS won the Ykkönen last season and was promoted directly. Honka had to play a playoff, but got promoted as well. Even though TPS was ahead last season, this season the positions have reversed. Honka is now 3rd and fighting for Euro Cup places. TPS is on 10th position and fighting to avoid relegation. The teams have met once this season in Turku with the match finishing 0-0. Last season, both of the matches in Espoo finished 1-1.

Honka was on good form but in the last two matches, they only got 1 point. First VPS beat them in Espoo 0-1 and ended their undefeated home run since 2014. In the last round they only managed to get 1 point away from home against bottom club PS Kemi. Maybe this is just variance though as Honka did managed to create enough chances to earn more but this time the balls did not find their way to the net. Honka home record this season is 4-4-1.

TPS has had problems with goal scoring all through the season. They have scored only 16 goals in 19 games which is the worst record in the Veikkausliiga. The defense has worked in most of the matches at home but away from home they have conceded way too many goals. In 9 away games, they have conceded 19 goals so an average of over 2 goals per game. This is the reason why they have earned only 5 points so far from their away games. In their last match they lost 2-1 to HJK away from home, but they had chances to get something more from this game.
