Last season´s number two, KuPS has gotten back in form and are now on the 3rd position. Somehow though they have yet to win at home this season. They have drawn with Honka and Lahti and lost to league leaders RoPS at the Savon Sanomat Areena. Away from home they have been excellent in beating HJK, IFK Mariehamn and in the last round, SJK. Against SJK, they were 1-0 behind but scored 3 goals to win. Even though KuPS has missed a clear striker, they have scored already 12 goals this season which is the highest in the league. The midfielders and wingers have been helping the strikers which is a good sign that shows that they have multiple offensive threats. Defensively they have conceded a goal in each of their games so far.

FC Inter is the same FC Inter from the past few seasons. It does not seem to matter how good the team looks on paper or who their head coach is. They still lack a clear playing style and they have weaknesses all over the pitch. They have only managed to beat bottom club PS Kemi this season and the only clean sheet they have kept was against HJK at home while playing with an ultra defensive playing style. Their 3-man at the back system has not worked and they are put constantly under pressure. Leaking goals will lead into leaking points and a top half finish this season will be difficult for them.
