Big game for the hosts as they are looking to increase their lead at the top of the Ykkönen. AC Oulu is currently 4th. They are also the only team that has beaten TPS this season in Turku (0-1). AC Oulu is the only team that TPS has not been able to score against in Ykkönen this season. The second match in Oulu ended 0-0

TPS played a big match last time as they drew 2-2 with 2nd placed KPV. They were losing that match 2-0 but somehow managed to get back into the game. TPS is currently the best home team in the league with a 8-2-1 record. Their only loss came to AC Oulu on their first home game of the season. Since then they have improved. TPS will miss Juha Montola and Onni Valakari who are both with the Finland U19 team.

AC Oulu had a bad loss 0-1 to Haka in their last game. If they could have won that, they would have a much better chance for promotion than they do now. They are 10 points behind both leaders and with 8 games remaining for them, it might be too big of a task. A win here though would improve those chances considerably as they also have played 1 game less than the leading 3 teams. They are the 2nd best away team with a 5-2-2 record. AC Oulu will miss Sharp Räsänen and Samuli Leppälä who are both with the Finland U19 team. They will also miss Matias Lindfors and Jair.

Prediction:

AC Oulu has been a difficult opponent for TPS this season as they play better when the opponent attacks and they can hit the counters. This is exactly what TPS can do so Oulu will defend. Under 2.5 goals in the main pick.
