The reigning Finnish Cup Champions host newly promoted FC Honka at the Veritas Stadium. FC Inter is currently 8th with 16 points. FC Honka is 5th with 22 points.

FC Inter won the Cup but they have been very inconsistent in the league. A few weeks ago they were able to get two wins in a row for the first time in a few years but after that they lost 1-3 at home to VPS and drew against bottom club and city rivals TPS 1-1. This team has a lot of talent but they just cannot play as a team for more than a few moments. Their biggest problem is in defense, not the players in defense, but defending as a team. They have conceded 26 goals in 14 games, which is the 3rd worst record in the league. If their offense was not capable of scoring, they would be in much bigger trouble. Unlike other teams, they cannot hide behind injuries as most of their players have been fit all season.

FC Honka is not a typical newly promoted team. Most of their players had plenty of Veikkausliiga experience before this season and they were expected to do well. They are very well coached with the emphasis in ball control and defending. They struggled with scoring goals early on in the season but they seem to have fixed that. They have gotten 10 points from their last 4 matches and scored 10 goals in the process. That is a big improvement as in the 10 matches before that, they had managed only 11 goals. This sudden spark of goals has affected their defense also as they have conceded 1 goal in each of those 4 games.
