Kick off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Lahden Stadion (Lahti).

Finnish team FC Lahti will take on Icelandic team Hafnarfjordur in this Europa League qualifying clash.

Lahti are just 22 years old and are trying to make a name in European football and have been known to invest in a lot of youth players for the future. The club also start off as just slight favourites to win this 1st leg game.

After 18 games in the Finnish league FC Lahti are 6th and have slipped 13 points behind the league leaders. They also come into this game after dropping form. In the past few weeks they had gone 3 games unbeaten but have now lost back to back matches and need to refocus on this competition.

The Icelandic league is also underway and Hafnarfjordur are in 4th place and just 6 points behind the leaders. They had lost 2 games in a row but recovered well to win their last game coming into this match. So far they have lost 3 games from 12 matches but just one of those has ended up coming away from home.

Lahti vs Hafnarfjordur Prediction

We think this will be a low scoring game and a close one. There isn’t anything in quality to separate the teams and much of the ball could be played out in the midfield with few chances. Our main bet then will be to see under 2.5 goals and we will also opt for smaller stakes to predict the half time score at 0-0.

Lahti vs Hafnarfjordur Bet Tips
