This is a match between the two most northern teams in Ykkönen. AC Oulu target is promotion. They are currently 6th but only 4 points from the lead. Newly relegated AC Kajaani also said that they would be fighting for places between 1 and 5 and no one believed them. Now they are though tied in points with Oulu and they beat the league leaders in the last round.

AC Oulu is a very good home team. They have a big advantage of being the most northern team in the league and other teams will have to travel a lot to get there. They are currently 3-1-0 at home. Kajaani though wont  have to travel long compared to others (182km). Oulu had a problem with their away matches but they got their first win away from home against EIF. Oulu has now gotten 7 points from their last 3 games. This co-incited in them getting back their main striker Morin.

AC Kajaani is a team who can win anyone and lose to anyone. Their offensive style of play can be effective or it can make the team collapse. So far it seems to be working though as AC Kajaani has scored 15 goals which is the joint best in the league together with FF Jaro. They have conceded though 17 goals which is the joint worst together with JJK. Kajaani is 1-1-2 away from home. In those 4 games, there has been a total of 18 goals so an average of 4.5 goals per game. Kajaani has played only 2 games under 2.5 goals and their total average is 3.56 goals per game.
