FC Inter are currently 7th with 27 points just 2 points behind their opponents SJK who are 6th.

FC Inter changed their head coach from Shefki Kuqi to Fabrizio Piccareta and immediately the team started playing better. They first beat HIFK easily and gave a good match in Lahti but the most in-form team at the moment was just 1-0 too good. The team is now more balanced and they no longer do so many stupid mistakes like they did under Kuqi. Piccareta has tried to bring back the fun into the team and he encourages players to take chances a bit more. They have some line-up worries though as Mika Ojala, Njazi Kuqi, Niko Markkula and Kevin Mombilo are all out due to injury.

SJK already looked like they had turned a corner as they were on a 5 game unbeaten streak with 4 wins and 1 draw but then they met their arch rivals HJK who yet again beat them 0-6. This time though it was at Seinäjoki. They played well in the first half of that game but in the 2nd they just folded. HJK has thus beaten them twice 6-0 this season so that is bound to affect their confidence. Last time when they lost to HJK, their next match was against FC Inter and SJK lost that match 0-3. Now they play FC Inter again after a 6-0 loss to HJK. History repeating itself? SJK will miss from this match again long term injured Matej Hradecky, Richie Dorman and Chema Anton. Billy Ions, Sergi Arimany and Timo Tahvanainen are doubts.

Last season SJK won all three games including a 1-3 in Turku.

Starting line ups:
Inter: Moisander – Varmanen, Nyman, Mäntylä, Manev – Mäkitalo, Njoku, Faubert – Garcia, Källman, Furuholm
SJK: Aksalu – Sundman, Bardanca, Hatakka, Hurme – Malolo, Hetemaj – Sarajärvi, Klinga, Ions – Mboma

Prediction:

Initial pick is home win.
