This is the top match of the round between 2nd placed RoPS and 3rd placed FC Honka. RoPS is 5 points ahead of Honka and a win here would really boost their Top-3 chances. Honka has a lot of teams chasing them so they need a win also. They gave RoPS their first home loss of the season and will want to win again tonight.

RoPS has been in good form recently. They have gotten 8 points from their last 4 games. They have had some injuries but the spirit in the team is high and they have been still able to play on a high level. RoPS is a very good home team. Most teams have to travel a long way to Rovaniemi and the travelling is never easy. RoPS is 8-1-3 at home this season with their only losses coming against Honka, HJK and FC Inter. Their last six home games have all been under 2.5 goals.

FC Honka has had a very good season after promotion, but it really did not get going until they brought in Macoumba Kandji. He has been the boost they needed for their offense. He has already scored 14 goals this season and he loves to score against RoPS. In the two previous games, he has scored 3 goals in total against them. Honka also has gotten 8 points from their last 4 games and are in good form. The wins though have come at home.
