Bottom club JJK will try to get out of last position against 2nd placed KPV. JJK has only won once this season but they are still only 3 points from safety. KPV could go top of the league with a win. Even though JJK is bottom of the league and KPV 2nd, JJK still scored 2 goals more in the first round (9 games) than KPV. That just shows how tight this league is.

JJK has struggled this season. The team does not have much money so they were unable to strengthen the team too much after several key players left at the end of last season. They are lacking especially in offense but also their defense has not been that solid this season. They still have many experienced players so they should improve as long as they get some help from their cooperation team Ilves. The team lacks depth and if they have injuries, it makes playing difficult as they only have young kids in he reserves. JJK is still looking for their first home win of the season. Their current record stands at 0-3-2 with 7 goals scored and 11 conceded.

KPV is one of the biggest promotion candidates but they have been suffering many injuries this season which has kept them of having their best starting line-up on the pitch at the same time. Even now they are missing several players and in their last match they only got 4 players to the bench with one of them being the “team manager”. Playing two matches inside a week will be a challenge for a team that lacks depth, but they will do everything they can. They have a lot of quality, but just not quantity. KPV is 1-1-2 so far in their away games this season with their only win coming against rivals FF Jaro.
