Here are two teams who want to bounce back from a bad defeat during the weekend. FC Inter lost 1-2 to their city rivals TPS after a bad defensive (and goalkeeping) display. HJK let a 1-0 lead slip away against KuPS and they lost at home 1-2. HJK had beaten KuPS in the previous 5 matches so this win was a surprise.

When Fabrizio Piccareta took over FC Inter he said he will improve the defense. It seemed to work in the Finnish Cup as they have made it to the Cup Final but in the league they have conceded 2 goals in each of their 3 games. Against TPS they struggled in the sides and many times TPS was free there. Offensively they are strong with two very good strikers in Furuholm and Källman. Their start to the season has not been that good as they have so far only beaten PS Kemi. HJK will provide them a good test and with some fight, they can challenge the title chasers.

HJK lost to KuPS in the last game and that was a big surprise for a team who had won their first 3 games in the league. Their biggest issue seem to be on the wings where the wingers are not the same level as last season. Or at least they are not playing at that level. Without that threat from the sides, they lack a big offensive threat they had last season. Also their goalkeeping is not as strong. Thomas Dähne left and his replacement Rudakov has not been at the same level. Still that loss against KuPS was only their first loss this season and you cannot draw too many conclusions from that. This will be HJK´s 4th match in 11 days but they have been rotating quite a bit so the players should not be too tired.
