EIF is the only team still in the league without a defeat and now they will face league leaders HIFK. Ykkönen is a very tight league and everyone can beat everyone. HIFK has a very good fan base and there will be a lot of their fans in Tammisaari (Ekenäs).

EIF has changed quite a lot since last year. The biggest change is a new head coach who has brought in a good defensive system. It worked well in the Finnish Cup where they made it to the semi-finals and now in the league they are still undefeated with 1 win and 3 draws. In those 4 games, they have only conceded 2 goals. Offensively they are not as strong but as long as they can put one more than their opponent, it will be enough.

HIFK is one of the biggest favourites to win promotion and so far they have a good start. They have beaten FC Haka, FF Jaro and Klubi-04 so far. Their only loss came away from home to AC Oulu. Now they dont have to travel that much. HIFK is the favourite because they have one of the most balanced teams. They have 2 good goalkeepers, good defense, good midfield and Pekka Sihvola to score the goals. Their performances are better than last year as they can play a bit more offensive football.
