PIF form and stats

Home games in the Kakkonen have been a walk in the park for PIF so far, with 25 points won from 10 matches; 8 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss. PIF has won so many consecutive home games (seven in a row) that they struggle to remember the last time points were lost here at Pajbackan kenttä. We remember; it was HJS Akatemia.

PIF's last game was hosting TPV (placed 12th) and winning 5-1. As indicated by the result mentioned above, PIF played a great game against TPV and beat them comfortably. Expectations are high for this one. K. Larsson was absolutely essential when PIF beat TPV 5-1, scoring three goals.

Heartbreak before that as PIF lost 0-1 at Ilves II's place.

PIF are showing their attacking force in their league home games this season, scoring more than 2,5 goals per game on average (30 goals in 10 games). PIF have conceded 11 in these home matches.

Jazz form and stats

The story so far for the visiting team on their Kakkonen travels is 3 wins, 3 draws and 4 defeats. Three might be a magic number, but there's been little wizardry in Jazz's last three away games as they have all been lost.

It might be tough going out on the road again for Jazz, facing their second straight away game. Especially as the previous game, ended with a defeat 1-3 versus VJS (placed 10th).

It was a defeat before that one as the away game against Ilves II wasn't a success with a 2-3 loss.

Jazz has displayed an ability to score goals in away matches in the league this season, 15 goals from 10 games. Jazz have conceded 16 goals in these games. It's worth mentioning that 8 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 away matches.

Head 2 Head

Jazz - PIF 1-2 was the product when this pair of participants last played each other, some time ago this season. Numbers for the prior two meetings featuring these two teams are: one win for PIF, one draw and zero wins for Jazz. Over 2,5 goals: one time; under 2,5 goals: one game.
