Inter Turku vs Lahti
Date: Friday, 5 July 2019
Kick off at 16:30 UK / 17:30 CET
Venue: Veritas Stadion (Turku).
The hosts failed to bounce back to winning ways in their last match and were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw against 11th placed VPS. The squad went into the break leading, after Timo Furuholm netted the ball home in the 25th minute, but began the second half on a much weaker note and subsequently succumbed to an equalizer six minutes after the restart.
The visitors, on the other hand, will be coming into the clash on Friday on the back of 5-1 mauling at the hands of third-placed KuPS in their last trip on the road.
The squad finished the game with nine attempts at goal, half of which were not even on target. Their opponents, however, went on to take sixteen attempts at goal and made the goalkeeper work on seven occasions.
The home side are currently fifth in the league with twenty-one points while their foes are on ninth with fifteen. A win for the hosts would certainly take them closer to a top three spot, with all four teams above them managing just one point more than the other.
Their counterparts are currently level on points with three other teams on the table at ninth, so the potential three points is certain to be the top priority for them as well.

Inter Turku vs Lahti Prediction
With the visitors going through a dismal run of form on the road, their chances of taking a win in the clash at the Veritas Stadion is less than the bare minimum.
The hosts have lost just one out of their last five fixtures on home soil, and are unlikely to suffer a second defeat when they take on the away side. The squad have also recorded two clean sheets, scored a total of 11 goals, and have conceded less than half of what they have netted.
The away side have not been consistent in finding the back of the net, let alone the win, in their last five trips on the road and have amassed just two goals to their name while conceding eight.
We can certainly expect the home side to be the only ones to get their name on the scoresheet this Friday, with the win likely to swing in their favor as well at the end of the ninety minutes.
