VPS – the shape of the team and its analysis:

"Vepsu" recently dropped to the second division but quickly bounced back, managing to secure a "bronze" position last season – one of their best results in history.

They are striving, and not without success, to maintain that level now. Initially, they were winning most matches, but in June, they experienced a series of victories, allowing competitors to catch up and surpass them. They even lost 1-3 to Inter in Turku.

Ekenäs – the shape of the team and its analysis:

"EIF" once reached the top division, but that was back in 1933. For most of their long history, the team has fluctuated between the third and fourth levels. Since 2015, they have been playing in Ykkönen and finally won it.

However, the Veikkausliiga newcomer has not had much success. With only one win and six points, their results are dismal for an outright underdog. But in the last round, they secured their second victory, defeating Gnistan with a 2-1 away win.
