Two in-form teams meet in Vaasa. VPS has drawn their last two matches but they have not lost in their last 4 games and are currently on 5th position. KuPS is 6 points ahead on 3rd position but they have played 1 game more.

VPS has a playing system which is based on ball possession. For this season they have developed it more to have more options. This has led to them having more chances in each game but unfortunately for them their forwards have not been able to put the ball away efficiently. Defensively they have improved since the start of the season as in their last 4 games they have only conceded 2 goals. They have had a lot of injuries and they are hoping to get back soon their top goal scorers from last season Morrissey and Vahtera. With them in the line-up their offense should improve also.

KuPS has scored the most goals this season so far. A lot of people doubted that they would have not have enough firepower (us included) but Rasmus Karjalainen has been on fire recently in that striker position. They have a much more direct playing style compared to VPS as they press the ball high up the field and when they get the ball back, they quickly start the attack with at least 4 players and try to score the goal. It has been working so far at least against teams with weaker defense.
