When the season started, Jaro and Honka were our biggest favourites for promotion. Honka is 2nd at the moment so they still have a chance but FF Jaro started the season badly and let the top teams go too far ahead. Now they are the best team in the league looking at their form with 13 points from their last 5 games. They got knocked out from the Finnish Cup by Honka so they have now a chance to put a dent into their visitors promotion hopes.

FF Jaro changed their head coach and got a few new players in and slowly got out of relegation trouble. They did the same thing last season also after they started badly and then made a huge sprint in the end but it was not enough then and it wont be enough now. Jaro is 5th but already 11 points behind Honka with only 5 rounds to go. Jaro has won only 3 games at home this season but their last two have ended in a win. FF Jaro will miss several players from this game as Walter Moore and Pavle Milosavljevic are suspended and Brock Messenger already returned to his country. That is 3 key players gone from jaro defense.

Esport Honka got a couple of big home wins in the last two rounds which put them ahead of KPV for the 2nd position. They are still chasing to top the league but TPS is playing really well right now so they cannot slip in any game. This is a must win game. Honka is 4-3-4 in their away games this season so not too convincing. They will miss Lucas Kauffman from this match and their top scorer Masar Ömer is a doubt.

The teams have met three times this season. Honka won in the Finnish cup 0-1. The first league match in Pietarsaari finished 1-1 but in Espoo, Honka won convincingly 2-0.

Prediction:

With the defensive problems that Jaro has, away win.
