This is normally a big match but neither team has any stake anymore. FC Inter is 8th with 38 points and they can no longer be relegated. They have a slight chance to be in the Top-6 but a lot of things need to happen before that. HJK is already the double champion after winning the league and the cup. That has not stopped them from winning games though.

FC Inter is looking for their first back-to-back wins this season after they beat another Helsinki team HIFK last week 4-1. The game was more tighter than the numbers would suggest but it was still a good win. This will be the last game for Inter legend Henri Lehtonen with Inter so the team wants to make sure he gets a good sent-off. Inter is 4-6-5 at home this season. Inter will miss from this match Lucas Garcia who is suspened and Niko Markkula who is still injured.

HJK won the league already and have had many key players missing but that has not stopped them as they are on a 10-game winning streak. They will want to continue this all the way to the end. They have been the best away team in the league with a 9-5-1 record, their only loss coming against VPS in a match that they dominated. Their defense has been awesome and they have kept a clean sheet now for 394 minutes in the league. HJK reserve team will have an important second leg match for promotion to the Ykkönen so some players might play there. HJK will miss Mosa, Roni Peiponen, Ville Jalasto and Hannu Patronen due to injury.

The teams have met twice this season with both matches ending 1-1. The last time HJK won in Turku was back in 2014 so quite a long time ago.

Starting line-ups:
Inter: Marttinen – Varmanen, Alan Henrique, Mäntylä, Kanakoudis – Mastokangas, Faubert – Lehtonen – Ojala, Källman, Furuholm
HJK: Dähne – Pirinen, Onovo, Obilor, Rafinha – Dahlström, Schuller – Atom, Valencic, Mensah – Pelvas
