FC Inter is currently 9th with 30 points and they are 8 points behind Ilves who are 3rd. If Inter still wants to get into Europe they cannot lose this match.

FC Inter has been very inconsistent all season and even the change in head coach has not really helped much. They played their last two rounds up at the north, first beating PS Kemi 1-5 after a great display but then losing 4-2 to RoPS after a bad display. Now they return to play at the Veritas stadium where they have won only 3 times this season. The international break came at a good time for Inter as they will now get back from injuries wingers Mika Ojala and Lucas Garcia. Also Philip Njoku returns after suspension. They will still miss injured striker Njazi Kuqi and full back Niko Markkula. Central defender Alan Henrique and Henri Lehtonen are both suspended from this match.

Ilves comes into this match with a 10-game unbeaten streak with 4 wins and 6 draws. Ever since they lost easily to both JJK and PS Kemi, they have changed things and they have become more organized and more difficult to beat. Ilves has been the 3rd best away team in the league this season with a 4-5-3 record. They will have to do some changes into their line-up in this match as the team has been suffering from the flu this week. They will definitely miss playmaker Tendeng and full back Koskinen due to injury. Ala-Myllymäki, Luukkanen and Jokelainen have been with the Finnish youth international teams during the break and might not be ready for this match.

The teams have met twice this season in the league with Inter winning 0-2 in Tampere and the match in Turku ending 1-1.

Starting line ups:
Inter: Moisander – Nyman, Mäntylä, Manev, Varmanen – Faubert, Njoku, Garcia – Ojala, Furuholm, Kandji
Ilves: Hilander – Aspegren, Miettunen, Mensah, Hynynen – Ayarna, Siira – Rahimi, Tamminen, Järvinen – Tuco
