PS Kemi will finally be able to play at their home ground in Sauvosaari, Kemi. The previous home matches they played were either in Rovaniemi or Oulu. They expect a good turnout to this match. PS Kemi needs help as they are bottom of the league with 4 points from their opening 8 games. Ilves is 6th with 12 points from their 9 games.

PS Kemi has had a tough start to the season but they are not as bad as their results might suggest. They have had a lot of defensive problems as the team has been constantly changing line-up due to suspension or injuries. Still they can beat almost anyone in this league on a good day. They were close in their last match against Honka but had to suffer two late goals to lose 2-1. They played good in that game and they will want to continue this. Out of their 6 losses, 4 have come by 1 goal. The potential is  there.

Ilves has had an average season so far with 3 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses. Their defense is improving but their offense still lacks goals. Even though Marious Noubissi has scored 3 goals so far, he has had enough chances to score more. This lack of composure in front of goal has cost them some points. Ilves is currently 1-1-3 at their away games this season having beaten only FC Inter so far. Last season Ilves was 5-8-3 in their away games so they have already lost the same amount of games as they did last season.

Previous matches (Last season):
