FC Inter had high hopes for last season but they started poor with Shefki Kuqi in charge and never got really going. They lacked depth at the back and that is one thing they have focused for this season. Their Italian head coach Piccareta has also changed Inter to play with 3 at the back in a 3-5-2 formation. They have one of the deadliest attacking duo in Källman and Furuholm. Mika Ojala has been moved from the wing to a more central role and it seems to have worked. FC Inter has been quite impressive in the Finnish Cup and they have made it to the Final.
