Both of these teams need points from this match. KPV got a big win in the last round against FC KTP and they are now on 3rd position. They are only 2 points from HIFK and 4 points behind EIF and the direct promotion. JJK is in the relegation zone. They are 2 points behind survival and AC Kajaani.

KPV beat FC KTP away from home 1-3 in their last game and that was only their second time this season where they managed to score more than two goals. They have a very good home record this season with six wins, two draws and only one loss (AC Oulu). With that big win against KTP, they might restart their season and really start challenging for the promotion.

JJK played last season in the Veikkausliiga and the lost their main strikers and some defenders and it has been too big of a change for the team. They have a lot of very young players and even though they play well, it is not enough to really challenge at this level. JJK lost to AC Oulu at home in the last match. Unfortunately for them, they could not build upon the great away win against AC Kajaani on the previous round. JJK is 2-1-5 this season on the road.
