The reigning Finnish Cup champions FC Inter has not won in their last 4 games and will want to end that form as the relegation zone is coming closer. KuPS is in exactly the same form not having won in their last 4 games. Losing Reuben Gabriel to injury and selling Urho Nissilä, has really affected their form. They are still on 4th position, but dropping more from the Top-3 in each round.

Inter earned a draw in their last match against Ilves. They deserved to get the point even though they almost lost it in the end but Jere Koponen was able to save a penalty to keep one point for Inter. The big thing in that game was that Inter was defensively solid which they have not been earlier in the season. They tried with Hoskonen, Mäntylä, Kamy and Penninkangas as the back four with Ari Nyman just ahead of them as defensive midfielder. This worked really well and Ilves was kept out of good chances. Offensively there is still room to improve though but a good defense is something they can finally build upon.

KuPS has struggled recently, especially away from home. In their last five away games, they have won only one (VPS 0-2), drawn once (TPS 0-0) and lost three times (RoPS 2-0, Honka 2-1 and Lahti 1-0). The worrying part is that they have stopped to score goals. That is just three goals in their last 5 away games. In their first four away games, they had scored 10 goals. Their defense has not been that solid either during the season. At home they have not gotten any clean sheets and away from home, only two. They just signed a new striker from Austrian club Kapfenberger, Luis Rangel, but he wont be available until the transfer window opens up on the 10th. KuPS is 4-1-4 this season on their away games.
