Riverside coach Alex Gaetani hopes his league of nations can cause an international incident against super power Devonport on Wednesday night.
Four days after the Strikers edged an entertaining encounter 4-2, the teams are reunited at Valley Road with the hosts expected to clinch back-to-back titles.
But Gaetani was delighted with his team's showing against the state's best and, with an ace returning to his pack, believes a shock is on the cards.
The Windsor Park outfit has been transformed in recent weeks as imports from three continents form a formidable spine.
Argentine Luca Vigilante patrols the space in front of the back four, Spaniard Nil Sanz dominates central midfielder and Englishman Chris Wademan averages a goal-per-game in his eventful seven appearances which also featured five yellow cards causing him to sit out Saturday's encounter.
"We have a second chance to upset them and if you bring Wadey into that side it's on the cards," Gaetani said.
The coach said the combination of Spanish and Yorkshire tones have added a vibrant dynamic to the Olympic dressing room.
"We're lucky to have three really good footballers there.
"They've come in and brought a big change. It's made the dressing room a really nice place to be. They are all very passionate boys and football is life to them which is different to a lot of Tasmanians."
Still adjusting to playing on grass, Sanz had his best game to date at Devonport, scoring one, setting up the other and striking a post.
"Nil was fantastic," Gaetani added. "He's technically supreme, makes the right passes and gets in good pockets. He's not used to the physicality but he's adapting to that and is going to become awesome."
Devonport are nine points clear with three games to go and enjoy a superior goal difference so just a point against Riverside would confirm the title regardless of Olympia's pending appeal against a point deduction.
Olympic have an extra day's rest before they return to action at South Hobart on Sunday.
Launceston City travel to Clarence's Wentworth Park on Saturday in a confident mood having already beaten the cellar dwellers 4-0 and 6-0 this season.
City were unfortunate not to record their first major scalp of the campaign when South Hobart fought back to claim a 2-2 draw a fortnight ago and Lino Sciulli's men will finish their campaign by hosting fourth-placed Hobart Zebras then visiting second-placed Olympia.
