The home side is in desperate need of points as they are currently in the relegation playout position with only 3 rounds remaining. FC Lahti is in really bad form having played 11 matches without a win. This led to them sacking their head coach Toni Korkeakunnas. This will be the first match in charge for Sami Ristilä.

IFK Mariehamn has not lost in three games but only one of them was a win. They have been decent at home with two wins, two draws and one loss. They play quite inconsistently but they are motivated for this match.

FC Lahti has had problems in defense and in their offense. They lost to TPS 2-5 in their last game and that was enough for the Lahti board and they let go Korkeakunnas already 3 matches ahead of time. Maybe playing for Korkeakunnas was no longer motivating for the players as they knew he was leaving. It will be interesting to see if Ristilä can get them playing better. They have been playing good against Mariehamn this season.
