TPS is still looking for their first win of the season. They started the season as one of the promotion favourites but right now their offense is letting them down. They lost to KPV 2-1 with a last minute goal and they also lost to AC Oulu 0-1 at home. In their last game they got their first point with a 0-0 draw against GrIFK. TPS had one of the best offenses last season and with them still having the same players, the potential for goals is there.  TPS will get back forward Jakonen from suspension but experienced striker Hyyrynen is still injured.

FC Haka started with a 0-4 loss to Honka and followed that with a 1-0 loss to AC Oulu. After that they beat EIF 2-0 and Gnistan 0-2. They are currently 5th with 6 points. All their goals have been scored by Kalle Multanen who is now the top scorer of the league. FC Haka will be without goalkeeper Joonas Immonen, Topi Järvi, Jami Kyöstilä and Joona Kari. The big loss is Immonen who has started in goal all of their 4 matches.

Last season Haka won the first match in Valkeakoski 2-1 but TPS won the last two games in Turku and Valkeakoski.

Starting line ups:
TPS: Viscosi – Friberg, Tenho, Kinnunen, Rähmönen – Peräaho, Blomqvist – Jakonen, Virtanen, Mettälä – Ääritalo
Haka: Kauppinen – Malundama, Rantanen, Latosaari, Saarinen – Lähdesmäki, Popovitch, Mäenpää, Mbachu – Bilali, Multanen

Prediction:

TPS has a much better defense than EIF or Gnistan so Haka might struggle to score a goal in Turku. TPS on the other hand has the potential to score and as Haka defense is not as good and now without their 1st goalkeeper, TPS could score some goals. That is a big if though. Under 2.5 goals
