Both squads have had plentiful rest since their last work day in an official game. Let's agree to expect an in-your-face fixture!

One slightly interesting match fact is that this game is played on artifical turf and that the visiting Sola have a different surface at their stadium (grass). The impact of this is hard to measure exactly, but the visitors stats on artifical turf is 7-4-18 (win-draw-loss) from 29 matches.
