Team News: FC Inter Turku
FC Inter Turku boss Jose Riveiro does not have any fitness worries to speak of coming into this clash with a fully injury-free squad ready to go.
Team News: SJK
Out of a mainly available squad, there’s only the sole fitness problem for the SJK gaffer Jani Honkavaara to contend with. Samba Benga (Ankle Injury) misses out for this game.
In our opinion, FC Inter Turku certainly have the ability to get the goals that they need against SJK, who won’t find it easy scoring.
We’re therefore anticipating a comfortable 2-0 margin for FC Inter Turku at the conclusion of the game.
