Ilves vs FC Lahti
Finland – Veikkausliiga
Date: Wednesday, 20 June 2018
Kick-Off at 16:30 UK
Venue: Tammelan Stadion (Tampere).

Ilves are going to take on Lahti in the 14th round of Finnish Veikkausliiga on Wednesday afternoon. Home team slipped down to the middle of the table after their negative streak of three matches without tasting a win. During that period, they managed to snatch just a point, however it came in the clash against the defending champions and the current league leaders, HJK. Jarjjo Wiss’ side have troubles in the final third as they scored only 13 goals so far in the season. Ilves have been performing very well at home, where they haven’t suffered a defeat yet.

Lahti tied their fourth draw in a row, but they are still two points away from the top three. They have been involved in low scoring matches very often and although their forwards do not score too many goals, Kalle Taimi and the lads are playing very tight in the back. Lahti suffered just one defeat so far in the season and in the last five outings they managed to remain undefeated at away grounds.

Ilves vs FC Lahti Head-to-head

When these two sides are facing each other, we are not able to see away victories too often. However, they have been involved in draws pretty frequently, while their clashes are not so efficient and the crowd is usually able to see two goals at most.

Ilves vs FC Lahti Prediction

Home side is not enjoying a good form, however they are performing very well in front of their fans. Lahti are also very tight and it wouldn’t be surprising if this one ends with another draw, fifth in a row for the visitors.

Since Ilves are not scoring too many goals, and the visitors know how to defend their net, we shouldn’t expect to see more than two goals in this one.
