The league leaders EIF travel to Kotka where they will try to beat their hosts FC KTP now a third time this season. The two other matches that EIF won were played in Ekenäs. 6th Placed FC KTP is 10 points ahead of the relegation zone and 9 points behind the promotion places with a game in hand. Even though promotion is still possible, it is starting to look like more of an easy mid-table finish for them.

FC KTP has been in good form recently as from their last six games they have won four. The main reason for the good form has been that the players have been fit and they have been able to play with their best eleven. In their last game they lost against KPV at home, but they were missing some players in the that match.  Overall they are a good home side. They have won five, drawn two and lost only two at home. They score goals just like any of the other top teams, but they concede a bit too many. They have managed to keep only three clean sheets all season. If they play their normal game, they can bet anyone in this league, especially at home.

League leaders EIF have been in a dreamland all season. Many expected them to be a low mid-table team, but thanks to their head coach Gabriel Xatart, they have only lost one game all season (AC Oulu at home). Since that loss they have played 10 games without a defeat with seven wins and 3 draws. Away from home they are the only undefeated team with three wins and six draws. Out of those nine games, they have kept a clean sheet in five of them. Only two of them have gone over 2.5 goals.
