This is the big game for relegation against the bottom two teams. A match that neither can afford to lose, but also they cannot afford to play a draw either as they need wins. TPS is now 11th on the relegation playoff spot with 19 points. PS Kemi is 1 point behind them. IFK Mariehamn is 4 points ahead of TPS and they hold the last automatic survival position. This is why both need a win here.

TPS has gotten some new players into the team and they have improved at least their home form. They beat VPS in their last home game 4-1 and everything looked to be going up. Away from home, they then lost to Ilves 2-0 and were back where they started. TPS just cannot win away from the Veritas stadium so because of this, these home games are vitally important to them.  TPS is 3-5-4 at home so far this season

PS Kemi might have not won in their last 4 games, but they have gotten 6 points in their last 5 games which is a better average than what they had at the beginning of the season. Their defense is better and they are very difficult to beat. It is just that they cannot create too many chances and score the winning goals. Kemi is 2-2-9 away from home this season.
