As part of the 12th stage of the first soccer league in Finland, today, starting with the hours of 18:30, on Sonera Stadium in Helsinki, HJK will host Inter Turku.
The hosting team is leading in Veikkausliiga, despite the fact that they have lost three from the last five matches played. HJK has 20 points, just as much as VPS Vaasa (with a match yet to be played) and Honka. Three from the last four duels disputed by the players of Sixten Bostrom have ended with goals on both gates. The former player of Chelsea or Hannover, Mikael Forsell, has marked in the last two stages and summed up four victories in this particular season. At home, HJK Helsinki has won in the current championship only the game against Rovaniemi, suffering three defeats, all with two goals received.
Before the departing for Helsinki, Inter Turku lays on the seventh position with 15 points. In the case she succeeds to win today, Turku will get closer at a difference of two points from the team she faces tonight. Inter is also having a rough time, she only has one victory in the last six rounds, 3-1 at home against JJK. The defensive line of Inter has broken down in each and every one of the last four rounds. In the games played away, Inter Turku has won only at Mariehamn, 2-1 at the beginning of May. In three from the five games played away, the players of the Dutch Job Dragtsma have ended the game with goals on each gate.
Turunen and Parviainen have returned to training from the pause made at the international games, but they have not been called for to play in the match against HJK. The quarterback Ville Nikkari has received, in the last round, his fourth yellow card of the season and will stay today on the bench.
The two teams have already met this season. At the beginning of May, HJK Helsinki was leading, after an hour into the game, with 2-0 at Turku. In the last third of the game, the team from Helsinki could not withstand from the physical point of view and ceased twice. This was the third consecutive match in which Inter wins against HJK.
