Bottom club Gnistan will play only their second home game at their own Musta-Pekka Areena which will give them a boost to try to get their first home win of the season. Gnistan has struggled to score goals in their matches. Only 4 goals scored in their opening 8 games. Defensively they have been ok but in their last two games they have conceded 5 goals. The newly promoted team, who operate on one of the smallest budgets, are finding life in this level very difficult. If they could get their offense sorted out, they could challenge the bigger teams.

FF Jaro who was rated as one of the favourites for promotion is going through a difficult period at the moment. Injuries and suspensions have taken a toll on this good team. They won their opening game of the season but that is their only win so far. They have then gone 0-4-2 and they only managed to get 2 points from their last 3 games where they played all at home. Against Haka they led 2-0 with 10 minutes to go but had to settle for a 2-2. Against OPS they were leading again 2-0 at HT but conceded 3 goals in the 2nd half to lose 2-3. Against AC Oulu they at least managed to comeback to draw 1-1.

This will be already the 4th game for Jaro in 9 days. For Gnistan this is the 3rd game in 9 days.

Starting line ups:
Gnistan: Kollar – Anyamele, Jeng, Aaltonen, Vaarakallio – Hyökyvirta, Selander, Fortunato – Jouini, Heimonen – Rexhepi
Jaro: Öhberg – Moore, Bamba, Chantzopoulos, Messenger – Katidis, Remesaho, Kronholm, Kula – Paintsil, Eissele

Prediction:

Jaro is too big of a favourite here. Gnistan can definitely get something here. Jaro defense has been lacking in recent game and Gnistan can definitely score. This will be already the 4th game for Jaro in 9 days which can take its toll and Gnistan at home on their own arena, can rise up to the challenge. Gnistan +1 AH and both teams to score.
