Two upper half teams meeting in an important game. Reigning Champions Mariehamn will meet Legia Warsaw in the Champions League qualifiers but that wont happen until 11 July. They still have to focus in the league where they have climbed to 4th position at the moment. FC Inter has been one of the most inconsistent teams in the league and with a squad like theirs, they should be doing better.

IFK Mariehamn is a very good home team. They have won 4, drawn 2 and lost only to FC Lahti on their WHA. They have a solid defense (Not as good as last season) and they hit teams on the counter attack. Aleksei Kangaskolkka has been in good form with 7 goals so far this season and Robbin Sellin has been there to give the assists. Despite those two players, their offense still needs improving especially as their defense sometimes has been having off days.

FC Inter has a forward line to scare any other team. If Mariehamn has only 1 capable striker, FC Inter can produce basically 5 of them. The biggest problem for Inter is probably that they do not have good enough delivery for those strikers to score more goals. Inter is a team who can beat anyone but at the same time, they struggle to beat some teams themselves. Now for this match, they will still miss main goalkeeper Henrik Moisander and full back Niko Markkula due to injury. On top of this, their main central defender Alan Henrique is suspended. He is the only player in this squad who has played 90 minutes in all the games. Considering that Inter has a narrow squad regarding defense, he could be a big loss.

The last three league matches these teams have played against each other have ended in a draw. In the Finnish Cup earlier in the season Mariehamn won 1-0.

Starting line ups:
MIFK: Vaikla – Wirtanen, Kojola, Friberg Da Cruz, Mäenpää – Sellin, Petrovic, Sparrdal Mantilla, Ekhalie – Span, Kangaskolkka
Inter: Koponen – Kanakoudis, Manev, Hoskonen, Nyman – Lehtonen, Kauppi, Faubert, Garcia – Kuqi N., Kandji


Main bet is both teams to score as both teams are missing a key central defender.
