This is a match between two teams that are expected to be fighting in the top half of the table. FC Inter has become much stronger than last season. Their trademark this season is good strikers. Reigning Champions IFK Mariehamn looks to be a bit weaker than last season but have gotten a couple of good results early on. The teams met once this season in the Finnish Cup as IFK Mariehamn won 1-0 at home (indoors).

FC Inter started their season with a huge 6-2 home win against RoPS. They followed that with a 2-1 loss to KuPS in Kuopio. FC Inter was able to create many chances in that game but were not clinical enough in front of goal. Also their already depleted defense suffered two early injuries in the first half so that did not help.  FC Inter will surely miss from this game the long term injured Arttu Hoskonen, Kalle Kauppi as well as newly injured Henri Lehtonen and Ari Nyman. Kosta Manev, Petros Kanakoudis and Lucas Garcia are all doubts and a decision if they will play will be made match day. That is basically two starting defenders and their replacements who will miss the match.

IFK Mariehamn did not have the best defense in their opening game but they managed to beat newly promoted JJK 5-2 at home. They improved a lot in the next game as they drew 1-1 again at home against title favourites HJK. This match will be their first away game this season. Mariehamn will miss from this match injured Albin Granlund.

The key match-up in this match will be with FC Inter full back Niko Markkula and Mariehamn winger Robin Sellin. Markkula likes to play offensive which might open Sellin some opportunities on his wing.
