VPS is currently 6th having gotten 5 points fro their opening 5 games. PS Kemi is bottom of the league with 3 points from their opening 4 games.

VPS won their first match against FC Inter but have failed to win their next four. This will be the 3rd home match in a row for VPS. The previous two have not gone that well. In both cases VPS took the lead and in both cases they led that lead slip away. This also happened twice in their away match against IFK Mariehamn. There is a risk this is becoming a habit. In all those games though, VPS was playing really well. It just did not last for the whole 90 minutes. They have a new team this season so this can be expected in the beginning.

PS Kemi won their opening match against SJK but have lost the other three. To be fair though their two home games against FC Inter and IFK Mariehamn were both played on neutral ground in Rovaniemi so they have not been able to have proper home advantage yet this season. Still their defensive performances have been seriously lacking. They have conceded 10 goals in their 4 matches. As they are the biggest relegation candidate, these performances are worrying.

VPS team news:

VPS is missing some players due to injury but this season they have depth in their squad to handle it. Will need to see the starting lineups to predict the level of the missing players.

PS Kemi team news:

They will have Jacob Esposito and Henrik Ölander available for this match.

Starting Line ups:

VPS:  Meerits – Mcqueen, Ciss, Lahti, Auvinen, Engström – Laatikainen, Gatambiye, Hakola, Strandvall – Gueye
Kemi: Forsman – Ölander, Manev, Abubakr, Heinolainen – Kaljumäe, Lipin – Isaksson, Guevara, Mäkelä – Araba

Prediction:

Both teams have had problems in conceding goals so we expect this to be a much tighter game. Under 2.5 goals.
