This is a match between the  recent Finnish Cup  winner FC Inter and the surprise team of the season RoPS. FC Inter has played much better in the Cup than the league as they find themselves on 9th position with 8 points from 9 games. RoPS is currently 3rd with 20 points from 10 games.

FC Inter won the Finnish Cup 2 weeks ago and it gave them confidence to then beat SJK away from home. On Tuesday though they were dropped back on earth with HJK avenging their Cup final loss with a 3-0 win. FC Inter has a good group of players and they should be higher in the standings but despite the Cup win, they do not play that well. The team does not have balance and they keep making silly mistakes sometimes. On a good day they can beat anyone but at the same time, they can easily lose to anyone. Not a consistent team. The last time they were able to win 2 matches in a row in the league was in April 2016. That just shows how inconsistent they are.

RoPS has been excellent all season. They do not have much depth in the team so sometimes their performances are affected by tiredness but besides that, they are playing really well. The new ball possession type of system suits their players really well. They defend and attack as a team which has made their defense really solid. They have conceded only 3 goals all season. That is 8 clean sheets in their 10 games. If they would have a better striker, they could easily be challenging for the league this season. Away from home they are 2-2-1 this season but in those 5 games, they have conceded only 1 goal. At the same time, they have scored only twice also.
