This is the first official match of the season for both teams. FC Inter finished 9th last season in the Veikkausliiga but they are expected to improve for this season. EIF finished 7th last season in the Ykkönen and they are expected to be fighting for similar positions this season.

FC Inter has managed to keep the same head coach from last season and the main core of the team. They have signed a couple of new faces so the basis for the team is strong. They have played already a couple of friendlies where they beat FC Haka 5-2 and KaaPo 4-0. For this match they have several injuries as they will miss Niko Markkula, Lucas Garcia, Tero Mäntylä, Niilo Mäenpää and Lassi Viholainen. They have depth though so they should be able to handle the missing players.

EIF has changed quite a bit for this season as they have struggled financially. They sold Doumbia to Dukla Praha and this helped the team to sign some new players. They also have a new head coach and team is definitely ready yet for this Finnish Cup. Last season EIF started their Finnish Cup also against FC Inter and lost 5-0. They did improve and in the group stage beat Legirus, Pallo-Iirot and TPS to finish 3rd behind IFK Mariehamn and FC Inter.

Starting Line ups:
Inter: Moisander – Varmanen, Hoskonen, Nyman, Ntankeu – Mäkitalo, Sesar – Ojala, Kuningas, Ademi – Källman
EIF: Jäntti – Ekström, Akpini, Sevon, Lindqvist – Honkasalo, Chakib, Limnell, Vili – Lindholm, Törnroos

Prediction:

FC Inter is more ready for this match so home win by at least 3 goals.
