This is an important match for both teams regarding promotion. After a slow start, KTP has found their form and a win here would put them into the promotion fight. KPV was one of the favourites for promotion this season but so far they have just been one of many. A win here would move them to the promotion play off spot ahead of HIFK to second spot.

FC KTP has found their form and they have won four of their last five games. Especially at home they have been really good with 5-2-1 record. Even that one loss should have been a draw as Jaro scored their winner clearly with a hand. The main thing in their resurrection is that they have found a way to score goals. Their top scorer Aleksi Pahkasalo leads the whole league with 9 goals.

KPV has not won in three matches. They were very close to beating HIFK in the last round but had to settle for a 2-2 draw. Still it has been their away games that have let them down. They are 2-2-4 on the road this season. In those 8 games, they have managed to score only 6 goals. That is something they will need to improve upon if they wish to challenge for promotion still this season.
