It may still be the early stages of the season but Inter Turku will be looking to bounce straight back from defeat against league leaders HJK when they welcome RoPS to the Veritas Stadion this weekend.
With the hosts struggling at the wrong end of the table and the visitors doing well at the other end, we think that FC Inter will look to keep things pretty tight in the hopes of snatching an unlikely victory. With this in mind, we think backing against the both teams to score market is the way to go in this fixture.
FC Inter sit in ninth place in the league but have managed to put just eight points on the board so far. They have failed to win in three attempts on home soil so far this season and with just one home goal scored, it is easy to see why.
The chances of this one being full of goals is depleted further when you take an in depth look at the visitors as they hold the best defensive record in the Veikkausliiga with just three goals conceded in their 10 outings so far. RoPS have also yet to see both teams hitting the back of the net in any of their away games this term and in another interesting twist, all of their matches on the road have finished with a total of either 0 or 1 goal scored.
The visitors are just two points behind HJK at the top of the league with 10 games gone and their defensive abilities means that they look like the side most likely to mount a challenge against the defending champions. If they are to achieve this, then they will have to maintain the habits which has served them so well so far and keep another clean sheet this weekend.
