There are only 5 rounds to go before the season ends. HJK already clinched the title so they do not have anything to play for. PS Kemi is 10th with 31 points and 6 points ahead of HIFK. They might still need a few points to guarantee safety.

HJK got their 7th win in a row after they beat IFK Mariehamn 1-0 on Wednesday and that win secured their title. No one can catch them anymore with the last few rounds so HJK is the double champions having won the Cup last Saturday. HJK is an excellent home team with a 11-2-1 record having conceded only 4 goals in those 14 games. There might be some rotation here but they will still want to help their city rivals HIFK by beating PS Kemi here. It is important for them that the “Stadin Derby” games continue also next season as those are the only games that can fill this stadium. HJK will miss from this match Mosa, Roni Peiponen, Ville Jalasto and Hannu Patronen. Aapo Halme is a doubt.

PS Kemi is reasonably safe as it is difficult to see that HIFK could catch the 6 points difference with 4 games left but still it is possible. It is worrying that they have not won in their last 3 games. They are able to score goals but they also concede too many. Their current away form is a decent 5-1-8. PS Kemi will have an important match against HIFK in the next round so they might want to save some players there also. The starting line-ups are crucial here. They will miss Nurmos for sure having got a straight red in their last match.

HJK has beaten PS Kemi twice this season; 0-1 in Kemi and 3-1 at home.

Starting line ups:
HJK: Uusitalo – Rafinha, Obilor, Vesiaho, Pirinen – Annan, Lingman – Mensah, Valencic, Atom – Pelvas
PS Kemi: Forsman – Mansally, David, Laitinen, Ojala – Guevara, Kaljumäe – Tano, Mosnikov, Ademi – Ceesay
