Main promotion candidate KPV lost their last match to another promotion candidate HIFK and will now want to get back to winning ways. KPV is currently 3rd and they are now 3 points behind leaders HIFK. FC KTP suffered an unjust loss to Jaro in the last round with a goal scored by hand and they are now appealing the result. KTP is currently 8th with 9 points.

KPV has been a good home team with 3 wins and 1 draw from their opening four games. They have had several injuries so they have not been able to play with their best line-up. Because of this, they do not dominate matches. All their home wins have come with only 1 goal margin. They already signed two new players, Sebastian Mannström and Charalampos Chantzopoulos, to replace the injured players but they wont be able to play until the transfer window opens up 10 July. KPV is the main candidate for promotion so even with a depleted squad, they are expected to win these matches at home. Last season KPV was 7-5-2 at home.

Newly promoted FC KTP has not won in 3 games but they should have gotten more from these games. Against league leaders HIFK they played so well in Helsinki that even a win would not have been unjust. Their defense is good but they do seem to have problems in scoring sometimes. They got good forwards but they do not create enough chances. They are 1-1-2 away from home this season.
