FC Inter Turku
FC Inter Turku, who won their previous game, will hope for a similar result following a 1-4 Veikkausliiga success vs Helsinki IFK.
For FC Inter Turku, goals were scored by Taiki Kagayama (25', 44'), Benjamin Källman (88') and Agustín Pastoriza (91'). Moshtagh Yaghoubi (24') scored for Helsinki IFK.
Sinimustat have not been the best at stopping their opponents lately, but they’ve also found ways to hit the back of the net themselves. Over their last 6 matches, Sinimustat have been punished defensively in 5 of them while also scoring in 6 of those matches. Such a trend isn’t assured to be carried forward into this game, of course.
Heading into this contest, FC Inter Turku are undefeated in their previous 7 league matches at home.
After tasting defeat last time out to FC Lahti in Veikkausliiga competition, IFK Mariehamn and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
Kari Arkivuo (50'), Loorents Hertsi (72') and Kristian Yli-Hietanen (84') scored for FC Lahti.
A tendency of at least one side getting a clean sheet in games featuring IFK Mariehamn has been fairly consistent recently. A glance at their last 6 games reveals that it’s occurred 5 times. During those clashes, their opponents have hit a goal aggregate of 9 while Grönvitt have scored 6.
Ahead of this clash, IFK Mariehamn have not won against FC Inter Turku in games played away from home for the previous 6 league matches. Not the best of away records.

Team News: FC Inter Turku
FC Inter Turku manager Jose Riveiro doesn’t have any fitness worries at all before this game with a fully healthy squad available to select from.

Due to a mostly available group of players, there is only a single fitness issue for the IFK Mariehamn manager Lukas Syberyjski to contend with. Aapo Mäenpää (Surgery) won’t be playing here.
We’re thinking that FC Inter Turku will more than likely score at least once when they play IFK Mariehamn, who won’t find it easy to score themselves.
Accordingly, we see a fairly comfortable 2-0 victory for FC Inter Turku when the full-time whistle blows.
