This is the first Turku Derby of the season. Both teams play in the Veikkausliiga now that TPS got promoted there after last season.

FC Inter has only played one game this season in the Finnish Cup where they beat EIF 3-0 at home. Inter has again invested quite a bit for this season and gotten some good quality players. They look to be a more balanced team from last season and they are expected to be among the Top-6 in the Veikkausliiga this season. FC Inter will miss Yoonis Muse, Albion Ademi and Niko Markkula. On top of these three Mika Ojala is out with a flu.

TPS started their Finnish Cup with two draws so they need a win here to keep their qualification hopes alive. They first drew with ykkönen side Klubi-04 1-1 and then again 1-1 with Veikkausliiga side and group leaders IFK Mariehamn. TPS has managed to keep the core group of players from last season and have added a couple of new ones as well but they still lack depth and the quality is not the best. They are expected to in the bottom-6 for the upcoming Veikkausliiga season. Rasmus Holma is suspended. Ristola, Jakonen and Peräaho are doubts.

Starting Line ups:
Inter: Moisander – Varmanen, Mäntylä, Nyman, Mansally – Penninkangas, Mäenpää, Kuningas, Sesar, Järvistö – Källman
TPS: Viscosi – Rähmönen, Tenho, Kinnunen, Friberg – Montola, Blomqvist – Ahde, Valakari, Sjoroos – Ääritalo


Its a derby game so a draw would not surprise but main pick is Inter to win with both teams to score.
