The surprise team this season has been EIF who made it to the Finnish Cup semi-finals and have lost only once all season in the league. They are currently 5th with 14 points and now they will face newly promoted FC KTP who has been unlucky in recent games and find themselves on 8th position with 9 points.

EIF has been really good defensively all season. They have conceded only 4 goals. Unfortunately in the beginning of the season that also meant that they did not score many goals either and played several draws, especially 0-0. In the last few games, they have become a bit more offensive and that resulted in their only loss this season (AC Oulu 0-2) but at the same time also to two wins. Wins bring more points than draws so EIF might continue to play a bit more offensively in the future. EIF is 1-2-1 at home this season. Their only win was actually against KTP.

FC KTP has been very unlucky recently. They lost to KPV to a last minute goal in the last round and before that, they lost to FF Jaro because of a clear “Hand of God” type of goal. Defensively they have been ok this season but the big problem has been in scoring goals. Only 8 goals in 9 games is not enough if they want to fight for Top-5 positions. The next three games for KTP will show how their season will go. They will play EIF, Kajaani and Klubi-04 in those games and if they will get two wins out of these, they could still get back into fighting for promotion.
