Big mid-table clash as both teams are still hoping that they can catch the leading trio above them. EIF is 5th at the moment with 22 points. They are already 13 points behind the leaders but they have 2 matches on hand. AC Oulu is 1 point ahead of EIF but they have 3 games on hand on the leaders so by winning them, they would be only 3 points behind.

EIF is in great form at the moment as they have gone 7 matches unbeaten (4W 3D). They also got Felipe Mello from Esport Honka during the transfer window so they look strong and if they keep this up, they can get close to the leading trio. EIF has a 3-2-3 record at home this season. They are getting back their captain Johan Estlander who has already been able to train with the team and play a bit with the Academy. He is not fully match fit but might take part in some extend.

AC Oulu suffered a surprising 0-4 loss to FF Jaro in the last round. Before that they went 7 matches unbeaten including games against all top-3 teams. AC Oulu will miss from this game Juuso Kemppainen, David Ramadingaye and Matias Lindfors is a doubt. Some other players have had some small knocks also and the decision to play them will be made later. New loan signing Sharp Räsänen is available. AC Oulu has one of the best away records 4-2-2 this season.

The teams have met 6 times since EIF got promoted and AC Oulu has won all those game. Their only match that they played this season in Oulu ended 1-0 but EIF made a protest due to a referee error and that whole match will be replayed in October.

This match is played on artificial turf.

Prediction:

EIF to win, ACO line-up is not the strongest and not a big bench.
