Inter Turku to win
Inter Turku finished as runners-up behind HJK in their last Veikkausliiga campaign, though their latest title tilt has started in a positive fashion in 2021. Spanish coach Jose Riveiro has his team playing some slick football and Inter have come flying out of the traps with seven wins in their first nine matches. Ilves meanwhile are reeling following a run of three straight defeats and having lost each of their last two encounters with Inter, more disappointment could follow on Wednesday.
Both teams to score
Inter’s defensive record on the road will be a cause for concern for Riveiro however. The Sinimustat have played four games on their travels since the new season kicked off and Inter have yet to secure a first away clean sheet. Ilves managed to notch five times in their last two home tests and they have the tools to impact the scoresheet again on Wednesday.
Half with most goals: second
Only early pace-setters and defending champions HJK have scored more often than FC Inter so far this term, though it’s worth noting that Jose Riveiro’s charges have plundered a huge 13 of their 17 goals in the second half of their games. FC Inter have been every inch a second-half team this season and it could take them a while to find their flow at the Ratinan Stadion. Expect the majority of the action to develop after the interval on Wednesday.
Ilves vs Inter Turku: Match Preview
There were plenty of positives for Ilves to enjoy in the early exchanges of the campaign following an impressive haul of ten points from their first five matches, though their disappointing 3-1 defeat at Lahti on June 10 sparked a turnaround in fortunes. Manager and former Finland international Jarkko Wiss watched on as his team came up short at SJK in their next fixture and despite making several changes to his team for Ilves’ trip HJK on Friday, yet another defeat followed.
FC Inter have enjoyed a major resurgence under the appointment of sharp Spanish tactician Jose Riveiro in 2018 and following successive second-placed finishes in 2019 and 2020, The Sinimustat are among the favourites to push HJK hard in the race for silverware this term. Inter have won six of their last seven assignments with their disappointing 1-0 loss at KuPS on June 14 the solitary black mark on an otherwise unblemished copybook. Inter bagged two wins and seven goals in their last pair of meetings with FK Ilves and they look ready to enjoy more success at their host’s expense on Wednesday.
