HJK vs FC Lahti Prediction

HJK has averaged 2.1 goals in the campaign this season, while the visitors have averaged 1.0 goal in their league schedule. It has to be noted that Lahti has given away clean sheets in the away games with the top two teams in the table. Since the host is at the third spot, it is likely to see that trend carried on in the clash.

With more chances favoring the home team, the odds will be against the Black Drones. The tip for under 3.5 goals will work better from the goals area for the punters. Besides, the home win is in low odds and for decent returns, the handicap tips will be the better choice in the fixture.
