FC Haka lost to league leaders HIFK in the last round but before that they had been in good form. They got some bad news before the HIFK match as their captain Jaakko Rantanen had to retire from football due to health reasons. He was their most experienced defender and it will be a big miss. EIF has been the surprise team this season. They started the season with excellent defense but they were lacking goals. Now they got their offense in order but they are not so good defensively anymore like their 3-2 win over FC KTP showed. They have lost only one game all season so they are fighting for promotion.

FC Haka is 3-0-2 at home this season losing only to leaders HIFK and JJK. They have had injuries to their main forward and their main defender so their performances have been a bit inconsistent. EIF is still undefeated in their away games. They are 2-3-0 on the road this season.
