It turned out to be a fantastic match at a sold-out stadium in Tampere. Tammelan Stadion is an old-fashioned stadium with lots of charm. It is located in walking distance just east of the city center.
Both teams fought for the championship at this time of the season. On the pitch the match was relatively even and could have tipped either way. A draw was probably an ok result in the end.
