Both teams are out of form and IFK Mariehamn has dropped to 9th position. VPS has seen their poor form dropping them from 2nd to 6th.

IFK Mariehamn won their last home game but it is their only win in 8 games. Last weekend they lost to KuPS in the last minute. Most of their points they have gotten from home where they have lost only once this season. At home they have won 6, drawn 5 and that 1 loss to FC Lahti. Their season has not gone the way the planned but they are still only 8 points behind a Euro Cup place. Draws are not longer to cut it though.

VPS season has been all down hill ever since their famous victory over Bröndby.  Since then they have gotten 4 draws and 2 losses. They got their style of play but they are lacking that final edge to win the matches. VPS prefers playing on a bigger pitch than in Mariehamn but they are capable of keeping clean sheets also here. VPS will miss Farbrice Gatambiyea and Aatu Laatikainen.

The last 3 matches these teams have played against each other have ended in a draw. The last time VPS won in Mariehamn was over 2 years ago.

Starting line ups:
Mariehamn:  Vaikla- Mantilla, Kojola, Friberg da cruz, Granlund  – Sellin, Ekhalie, Petrovic, Span- Sid, Kangaskolkka.
VPS: Meerits- Lampi, Viitikko, Koskimaa- Engström, Sohna, Levänen, Voutilainen, Hakola – Vahtera, Clennon

Prediction:

This looks like another low scoring draw.
