This is a derby game as GrIFK comes from the city of Kauniainen which is surrounder completely by the city of Espoo. Honka is currently 3rd but has this game in hand and if they win this, they will go back on top again. GrIFK is in the relegation zone as 9th and are 3 points from safety. The teams have met twice this season with Honka winning in the cup 2-0 and in the league 5-0.

Honka has been the favourite for promotion this season but they face tough competition from both KPV  and from TPS. Honka has a very balanced team. They have the 2nd best defense in the league (behind TPS) but their offense is the best with 27 goals scored in 14 games. Honka will be without Miko Puuskari, Duarte Tammilehto and Onni Puhalainen due to injury. Captain Tommi Saarinen is suspended.

GrIFK has struggled in their away games this season. They have only earned 2 points and they have conceded 19 goals in only 7 matches. Now they face Honka who has beaten them already twice this season. In their last game they lost clearly to TPS 3-0. Before that though, they had managed to score a goal in 7 of their previous matches. Actually their 5-0 loss to Honka was their previous match where they did not score a goal.

Prediction:

Honka is highly motivated here to win but the odds are too low even to win by at least 2 goals. With a bit riskier bet, we will back both teams to score.
