JJK Jyvaskyla vs Lahti
Date: Saturday, 1st July 2017
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Harjun Stadion.
The league’s newcomers will have a mountain to climb in order to keep the elite class status for longer than a year.
The hosts have huge troubles to stay competitive in this term of Veikkausliiga as they have won only seven points from 14 matches so far in the season.
Lahti will thus have a fantastic opportunity to overtake the defending champions Mariehamn at the third position with the potential victory over the rock-bottomed JJK this Saturday at Harjun Stadion.
Juha Pasoja just does not see the light at that seems that there is no light at the end of a tunnel for Juha Pasoja who might easily be the next manager to lose his job in the top flight of the Finnish football.
Pasoja had hoped for the turnaround in the last round when his team took on the penultimate-placed HIFK, but JJK’s ambitions of saving the elite class status suffered a huge blow with a demolishing 0-3 defeat on the home pitch.
Just for comparison, Lahti destroyed HIFK on Wednesday 4-1 in front of their fans to make it seven games on the trot without a defeat.
Toni Korkeakunnas was thrilled to see his strikers finding the touch since the team bagged four goals for the first time in this season.
JJK vs Lahti: Head to head
The head to head stats also favour Mustat Kuhnurit who won eight of 16 meetings with JJK having lost only three games along the way.
It is very interesting to note that each of the last four H2H encounters between the two teams saw the option of both sides scoring, including the 1-1 draw from late April this year.
JJK vs Lahti: Prediction
We have doubts if the visitors will fail to take advantage of the momentum as everything points out to a pleasant afternoon for their fans.
The away win is a banker at the odds of 10/11, while we’ll also try with Lahti to score two or more goals in the match at the evens odds.
