SJK had a slow start to the season but have since improved. That improvement came at the same time as they got back from injury their important midfielder Mehmet Hetemaj. In the last 3 games SJK has beaten JJK and RoPS. They were also very close of 3 points against KuPS but a last minute equaliser forced a draw. Defensively they are better and offensively they are improving.

Reigning Champions IFK Mariehamn have not started well. They are still difficult to beat but too many of the games end in a draw. Their only wins have come against the two bottom clubs PS Kemi and JJK. In the last round they suffered a 0-2 home loss to FC Lahti. Now they will face a much stronger opposition but being the underdog might actually suit Mariehamn better.

Last season IFK Mariehamn beat SJK twice 1-0, home and away. The last game in Seinäjoki ended 1-0 for SJK.

Starting line ups:
SJK: Aksalu – Hurme, Vales, Anton – Hradecky, Hetemaj, Malolo, Klinga – Facundo, Ions, Zeneli
Mariehamn: Vaikla – Friberg Da Cruz, Lyyski, Kojola, Granlund – Sid, Petrovic, Sparrdal Mantilla, Ekhalie – Span, Kangaskolkka

Prediction:

There is value on the X2. Despite SJK improving, IFK Mariehamn defense could be too strong for them especially as they lost the last game to Lahti.
