HIFK finally stopped their winless streak after they beat Klubi-04 on Thursday. The win moved them only two points behind leaders EIF. FC Haka has not played in the last 10 games so they might be a bit more rested. Haka beat Jaro in that last game 1-0 and that win moved them to 4th position. They are six points behind EIF so a win here could really give them a promotion boost.

HIFK had a bad spell before the Klubi-04 win where they conceded 9 goals in their past 5 games. Their offense was able to match that so that they only lost one game, but still the defense needs improving. Even Klubi-04 who has the worst offensive record was able to score in their game (1-3). HIFK is the only undefeated home team in the league with a 5-4-0 home record. A win here could move them back on first position if EIF fails to win their game against KTP.

FC Haka has been in good form recently. They have won two and drawn two of their last four games. Their problems have mainly been on their away games where they are 2-4-3 this season. They will need to improve on those results if they wish to earn promotion. Out of the last nine rounds, five of their games will be away from home.
