These two played an epic battle on who will win the First Division Ykkönen last season and earn direct promotion. TPS earned a draw in Espoo to keep them top of the league and win promotion. Honka also got promoted after the play-outs but they will now want to earn their revenge against TPS. The home side is currently 11th with 8 points. Honka is 7th with 11 points.

TPS has played a tough season so far. They play well but some small lapses in defense costs them points. Only one of their losses has been with more than 1 goal (SJK got two late goals to win 0-2). Because of the errors, their defense has been leaking a bit. Offensively they create chances but they are not efficient in scoring. With a bit more luck, they should have had more points than their current 8. At home they are still looking for their first goal of the season.

Honka has slowly improved. They have lost only once all season but it has been draws that keep them only 3 points ahead of TPS. Defensively they are good even though they have only kept 1 clean sheet so far this season. Only Inter and SJK have managed to score 2 goals. They still have a lot to improve in their offense though. They have problems in the final 3rd but if they can get Macoumba Kandji fully fit, the can help there.
