    Can these two be used as synonyms?

    Hello!

    I'm sure one can find some nuances in the meaning in different contexts, but as a separate phrase like this outside of any specific context I would say that they are synonymous, yes.

    It'd be cool to listen to what those nuances could be.

    Those nuances could be for example:

    Kalevan kisat viidennen kerran Lahdessa – The Kaleva games have been or will be for the fifth time in Lahti.
    Kalevan kisat viidettä kertaa Lahdessa – The Kaleva games are going on for the fifth time in Lahti.

    This is just my idea, not a general fact.
