The most important thing in this match is that Ilves returns to their normal home stadium of Tammela. Their first three home games (1 win, 1 draw and 1 loss) have been at Ratinan Stadion. At Tammela, Ilves was last season one of the best home teams in the league. They were 9-5-2 at home last season with their only losses coming in their first home match of the season to IFK Mariehamn and in their last home match of the season against HJK. The atmosphere at Tammela makes it very difficult for away teams to play there.

Ilves has been in very good form. Their defense has been really good but they did lose in the last round 2-0 to HJK in Helsinki. Defensively they played well in that game with the opening goal coming after a bad and uncharacteristic error by their normally reliable goalkeeper Mika Hilander. Without that goal, Ilves could have defended a draw in that game. FC Inter started the season with a clear 6-2 win over RoPS but after that their offensive performances have struggled despite them having 4 good strikers in their team. Their only wins have come against RoPS and bottom team JJK (1-2) where they struggled also. They have a couple of good defensive displays against HJK and IFK Mariehamn where they earned draws but overall, they have had a disappointing start to the season. In the last round they lost 0-1 to VPS at home.

Last season the teams met 3 times with Inter winning the first match in Turku 1-0 and the match in Tammela finished 0-0. Ilves then won the last match at Turku 0-1.

Ilves will get back defender Antti Koskinen from injury but will still miss Penninkangas, Kazi and Nworuh. FC Inter will miss injured Kevin Mombilo and Julien Faubert.
