Ilves – the shape of the team and its analysis:

The "Lynxes" had a sluggish start. They began with a draw against Lahti and suffered a couple of losses, including a 4-6 defeat at home to Gnistan. However, they then surprised everyone with a series of five consecutive victories, securing their place among the league leaders.

Their results dipped afterwards, but this was expected as they faced top teams. They managed to draw away against HJK and VPS and only lost 1-2 at home to KuPS. They redeemed themselves with a 2-0 victory against Inter Turku.

SJK – the shape of the team and its analysis:

"Kerho" have been unable to replicate their best results from the mid-2010s. There were hopes for a successful season, as they alternated between wins and draws in the first six rounds.

The team then started losing more frequently. At the transition from spring to summer, they suffered several consecutive defeats: 0-2 to Mariehamn and 1-4 away to HJK. However, they confidently beat Ekenäs 3-1.
