There are only 5 rounds to go before the season ends. RoPS is 9th with 32 points and JJK is last with 19 points.

RoPS has had an inconsistent season with many players leaving and many players coming in. Their biggest problem right now is the striker position. They sold their main striker Eze after the Finnish transfer window closed to Sturm Graz so they were unable to get a replacement. The substitutes Tukiainen and Roiha are just not at the same level. Despite this, they are a good home team with a 7-1-6 home record. They always have a chance against anyone there. RoPS will be without their key central defender Ivan Tatomirovic who got a 3-game suspension that starts from this match. They will get back Simo Roiha though.

This is a huge game for JJK because HIFK won their match yesterday, JJK must win this today. They are 6 points behind HIFK with this game in hand and if they lose, they can get ready for relegation. Their current form is not bad but their last round loss to FC Inter was a tough one. They started really well and but Inter under pressure but as they failed to score in the first half, Inter was able to come back in the second half to win. JJK´s away from 2-3-8 is not that good but considering that both of those wins came during their last 3 away matches, their current away form is pretty good.

The teams have met twice this season with RoPS winning first at home 2-1 and the match in Jyväskylä finished 1-1.

Starting line ups:
RoPS: Reguero – Nurmela, Väisänen, Hämälänen, Hyvärinen – Okkonen, Will – Stavitski, Muinonen, Lappalainen – Roiha
JJK: Marttinen – Abdi, Tapaninen, Lähitie, Ojamaa – Kari, Poutiainen, Manninen, Petrescu – Etock, Jovovic

Prediction:

Both teams to score is our main pick.
