Inter Turku comes to this game with high morale, as they won the last game with a win against Ilves (5-1), T. Furuholm was the great star of the game, scoring 3 goals and hat-trick, what which currently makes him the top scorer in the team and in the league, with these same 3 goals.

The home team have had no losses in the last 9 home matches and have scored goals in all of these matches – an incredible 3.7 goals per home game in this period and under these conditions. With this in mind, we predict that Inter will cause serious problems for the visiting defense.
HJK Helsinki :
The visiting team is currently in 1st position, with 6 points won. In its debut, it won out against FC Lahti by (0‑4). On Matchday 2, they won at home to Haka by (3‑1).

In the last 5 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 4 of their 10 goals between minutes (31’ ‑ 45 ‘).
Helsinki, as well as the rival this day, also have a powerful and scoring attack. We can see that in the two games for this league he has scored 7 goals: 4 for Lahti and 3 for Haka Valkeakoski. So, it does not matter if he is playing at home or as a visitor, his attack continues to work and causes great danger to the rival defense.
It is important to note that Helsinki did not lose away from home 7 games ago, with 5 wins and 2 draws, having scored 14 goals in these 7 games, with an average of 2 goals per game. A very high average in visitor status. This means that Helsinki, every time they play away from home, have an aggressive stance, scoring many goals. It should be noted that this is a traditionally strong team in the country, having already won 21 titles in this championship, the last time in 2018.
