This is the battle between the only undefeated teams in the league. League leaders KPV who are also the main promotion contender have won 2 and drawn one. EIF who surprised everyone by making it into the Finnish Cup semi-finals, have won 1 and drawn 2.  The teams are first and third at the moment.

KPV invested a lot again this season as they look to earn promotion to the Veikkausliiga. This could be their last chance before the money tap is stopped. They have a very good squad and it is no surprise that they lead the league at the moment. They beat AC Kajaani in their hope opener last week. It was not a great game for the hosts but they did get the 3 points with a 2-1 win. KPV has gotten some knocks in practice so there are quite a few players who are doubts for this game.

EIF has had a good start to their season. Their new Spanish coach has gotten to play with a clear 4-3-3 formation with a solid defense. It has been working really well as the team is still undefeated. In their last game they were lucky to draw with JJK but every point counts. EIF has build a nice balanced team and like always, their foreign players are of good quality. Up front Felix de Bona and Etche Tabu are very dangerous and they can score against anyone.
