Ilves has been very inconsistent lately. After a good start to their season, they have lost 3 of their last 4 games. The losses to HJK and FC Inter were followed by a great away win against VPS but last weekend they suffered a humiliating 3-1 loss against the bottom club JJK. Conceding 3 goals in the last game for the first time this season for that defense. Normally they have been very solid at the back. Offensively though they are still facing problems. Only 10 goals in 9 games is not enough for a team who are fighting to finish in the Top-3. They cannot afford slip-ups like the one in the last round. Ilves has had problems with injuries and they might miss some players also today. Lauri Ala-Myllymäki will miss the game as he is doing his military service.

PS Kemi has been slowly improving their level. After 4 straight losses, they beat FC Inter 1-3 in Turku. In the last round they lost at home to VPS 0-1 but right at the end they almost equalised. They are not a bad team and on their day, they can surprise anyone. Despite their improvement, they are still conceding goals. They have conceded in every game after their opening round 0-0 with HIFK. Offensively they have scored only 8 goals so they still need to start improving there if they wish to avoid relegation this season. PS Kemi will miss Räihä, Wiena and Said Ahmed.

Last season the teams met 3 times in the league with PS Kemi winning at home 1-0. The next two matches were played at Tammelan Stadion with the 2nd game ending in a 1-1 draw and Ilves winning the last match 2-0.

Starting line ups:
Ilves: Hilander – Hynynen, Miettunen, Tanska – Järvinen, Ayarna, Tendeng, Juuti – Hilska, Tuco, Lehtonen
PS Kemi: Vilmunen – Aubrey, Zea, Laitinen, Kaljumäe – Mansally, Guevara, Ojala – Karjalainen, Ceesay, Valencic

Prediction:

There should be goals in this match. Over 2.5 goals
