GrIFK started their season with a 0-2 home loss to OPS. They were able to create chances but just could not finish them. In their second game they earned a good 0-0 away draw against FF Jaro. To be fair though, Jaro was missing a few key players from that game but still it was a good result against a team who is looking for promotion. TPS started at home against EIF but the match was called off due to bad weather at half time with the game being 1-1. They then lost to a last minute goal in Kokkola against KPV 2-1. That loss was followed by a 0-1 home loss to AC Oulu. Their biggest problem has been their offense. They do not create enough chances for the forwards to put the ball into the net.

GrIFK is a good home team, from their 11 wins last season, 8 came at home. Last season GrIFK won the first home game against TPS 1-0 but lost the second 1-2. In Turku TPS won 2-0. From this match TPS will miss winger Jakonen who got 2 yellow cards in the last match against AC Oulu. Also their experienced striker Mikko Hyyrynen is still out injured. They will get back though Waltteri Peltola from injury. Peltola was their top scorer during pre-season with 6 goals.

Starting line ups:
GrIFK: Vuorinen – Stevens, Perera, Takamäki, Mikkonen – Ahadi, Ademaj, Ilomäki, Seferi – Langhoff D, Meyer
TPS: Viscosi – Kinnunen, Holma, Tenho, Rähmönen – Peräaho, Blomqvist – Peltola, Virtanen, Mettälä – Ääritalo

Prediction:

Both teams have good defenses and are struggling to score goals which increases the chance of a draw. However best bet here is under 2.5 goals.
