HJK vs Lahti
Date: 16th October 2017
Kick off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Telia 5G -areena.
The international break did not change much in Veikkausliiga, at least not in term of HJK’s dominance.
The new champions kept destroying their rivals claiming the ninth straight win on Thursday when they dispatched SJK 0-2 on the road.
The gap at the top of the standings is thus increased to 20 points and Klubi have no intention of stopping against Lahti either.
Mika Lehkosuo has been doing a fantastic job in keeping his lads motivated even though the title has been secured long time ago.
We just must praise HJK’s phenomenal defensive displays since the team kept four consecutive clean sheets coming into Monday’s fixture with Lahti.
The visitors will be much more motivated side here as they dropped out of the top three positions after the second consecutive loss on Thursday.
Toni Korkeakunnas’ men failed to deliver in the final third against their direct rivals and last year’s champions Mariehamn in a 0-1 defeat at their Kisapuisto.
HJK vs Lahti: Head to head
Klubi will have a special motivation to end the negative run in head to head encounters with Lahti against whom they are winless in last three games.
The home fans can still remember the catastrophic 1-4 defeat HJK suffered to Lahti in their previous clash at Telia 5G.
HJK vs Lahti: Prediction
Even though the visitors are desperate for points to stay in the contest for the third position, the home wi9n is the only logical betting option here.
Also, since Mustat Kuhnurit failed to score against Mariehamn, we just have to see the value in 7/5 odds offered for HJK to win to nil here.
