FF Jaro took a big 2-1 win on Tuesday against OPS. It was their first home win of the season after 4 draws and a loss in their previous attempts. They started the season as a contender for promotion but injuries and suspensions have affected them a lot. They are now 10 points behind the leaders so anything is possible but this game is another must win for them. It wont be easy though as this will be their 8th game in June. That is 1 game in every 3.25 days. That has to take a toll on these players. Jaro will still miss Papa Niang, Joni Remesah and Joakim Häggblom due to injuries. Adam Vidjeskog is suspended and Axel Vidjeskog is with the youth national team. Charalambos Chantzopoulos and Georgios Katidis should be available in this game after spending the previous match on the bench due to slight knocks.

EIF has only 7 points so far from 9 games (The match against AC Oulu will be replayed). They are 8th and they need to start getting points or face being relegated. GrIFK is behind them only with goal difference. EIF has struggled in away games especially as they they have earned only 1 point so far. They have conceded 11 goals in their 4 away games so far but if you take out the 6-0 loss to TPS, then those games have been quite tight. Offensively, their goal scoring relies heavily on Felix de Bona who has scored 6 out of their 10 goals, but on the road they have managed to score only twice. This is only the 6th game in June for EIF so their players have had more rest.

The teams met once this season in Ekenäs (Tammisaari) with Jaro earning a 0-2 win.

Prediction:

Despite Jaro winning their first home game on Tuesday and them being the better team, considering the fact that the differences in Ykkönen are never too big and the fact that this will be Jaro´s 8th game in 26 days compared to EIF´s 6th in 27 days, the visitors have an advantage. Also this is Jaro´s 3rd match in 8 days while as EIF has rested for 9 days. EIF +1 AH has value.
