Both teams started their season poorly but have found form in recent games. FC Honka got their first win of the season on Thursday as they came back from 1-0 to win 1-2 against league leaders RoPS in Rovaniemi. IFK Mariehamn has won their last two games 3-2 and those were their first wins of the season. FC Honka had played a lot of good games even before that win but they lacked a proper striker to put their chances away. Now they have one as they signed Macouba Kandji and he immediately scored on his debut in Rovaniemi. Now their team looks much more balanced and can start putting away those chances.

IFK Mariehamn was supposed to have one of the best defenses in the league but they have conceded 13 goals in 6 games which is the highest together with Kemi. Luckily though in their last two games they have started finding the net so their offense has improved. The fact that they got the experienced Gabriel Petrovic back from injury and into their midfield has been a big help. But with that defense, they still have a lot to improve.
