This is one of only two games in this round where both teams have a stake. OPS needs at least 2 points from their final two games to be absolutely sure that they will not be relegated. It is also enough if Gnistan does not win their final two matches. Esport Honka is fighting for direct promotion and they are 3 points behind TPS so this is a must win game for them. In the final round they play against TPS and currently they have a 3 goals worse goal difference so they must take that into account as well.

OPS has had a weird season. They got most of their players just before the season started and it took them a while to get going. They have a lot of good players and when they were able to play at their best as a team, they could beat anyone. Unfortunately for them, that was not often and they could also lose to anyone. OPS has the biggest goal average in their games in the league with a 3.32 goals.

Esport Honka had a bit of a weak spell in August where they managed only 1 win, 2 draws and 2 losses but after that they have won all their games (5) and are finishing strong. There has been a lot of goals in their last games. They have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 10 games but at the same time they have been able to score themselves an average of 2.3 goals in those 10 games (failed to score only once).

The teams have met twice this season with Honka winning both matches 0-3 and 3-1. The teams met also in the promotion playoffs after last season which Honka won 3-4 on aggregate.

Prediction:

Honka to win with over 2.5 goals in the match. Honka is not going to take their foot of the gas in order to get a better goal difference so a high win is also possible if there is an early goal. If TPS is leading against Gnistan at the same, OPS will not have to get anything from the match so they might relax a bit. Honka -2.5AH is a good option then also for live betting especially.
