FC Inter Turku
FC Inter Turku won’t want a repeat of their last result here after the 2-0 Conference League Qualifiers loss in their previous game against Puskás Akadémia.
It has been a rare occasion in recent games that FC Inter Turku haven’t conceded. It will be a concern for them that Sinimustat have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 games, letting in 7 goals along the way. While that may be of interest, time will tell if such a trend will persist in this match.
After a loss in their previous game against FC Lahti in Veikkausliiga competition, Helsinki IFK and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
In that match, Helsinki IFK had 45% possession and 7 shots at goal with 3 of them on target. FC Lahti had 8 attempts at goal with 6 on target. Jasin Assehnoun (77') scored for FC Lahti.
Clashes involving Helsinki IFK have had a tendency of being rather bland affairs latterly with a dearth of scoring becoming customary. During their past half dozen games, a combined goal total of 5 has been recorded between both them and their opposition at an average goals per game of 0.83.

- are undefeated in their last 5 away league matches.
- haven’t won away from home in the past 2 matches in the league.
