This is the first match of the Veikkausliiga season for both teams. FC Inter had a slightly better pre-season as they made it to the Finnish Cup quarterfinals where they lost to SJK 3-2. RoPS went out also to SJK one step earlier 0-2. This match is played on natural grass which should give an advantage to the home side as RoPS has been playing on artificial turf up in the north.

FC Inter head coach Shefki Kuqi said that their team will play active and aggressive football which a bit similar style that RoPS likes to play. FC Inter will miss from this match Kalle Kauppi, Arttu Hoskonen, Lucas Garcia, Kosta Manev and Petros Kanakoudis due to injuries.

RoPS started their outside training a bit later than usually but according to their manager Juha Malinen, the team is ready for the new season. They are filled with a lot of potential young talented players but even Malinen admits that he does not know how that talent will come out this season. They have the potential to surprise any team. From this match they will miss only Aapo Heikkilä.

Last season the teams met three times with RoPS winning twice (home and away) and the second match in Turku finishing 1-1. Those 4 points that RoPS picked up last season are very rare considering that that Inter has beaten RoPS at home 13 times with 4 matches have ended in a draw and RoPS has won only once (last season).
