PREVIEW: WEEKEND FINNISH ACTION
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
Thursday, April 29, 2010
Daniel Antunez and FC Inter return home to Turku to take on early season strugglers FC Lahti on Monday evening at Veritas Stadion.

FC Inter - FC Lahti

Antunez has started the season's first two matches and will likely line up at his customary central midfielding position for head coach Job Dragtsma.

Inter are off to a solid start in this year's edition of the Veikkausliiga. A 1-1 season-opening draw to defensive-minded IFK Mariehamn was followed up last week by a swift and decisive win over Jaro.

The American has played a major role in Inter's attack forcing many corner kicks and remaining active on both sides of the ball.

The 2008 league champions will be looking for three points versus Lahti who are predicted by many to be relegated at season's end.

However the visitors will be boasted by their midweek 2-1 Finnish Cup victory over fellow Veikkausliiga club Tampere United and led by Finnish soccer legend Jari Litmanen.

Neither club is reporting any major injuries so both head coaches will have full squads available.

Notes

VPS' American duo of Brian Pope and Greg Eckhardt remain sidelined by injuries and will not take part in VPS' Sunday affair with HJK.
