Lahti vs HIFK
Date: Tuesday, 27th June 2017
Kick off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Lahden Stadion.
HIFK will come into the match in high spirits after claiming a highly-important away win over fellow strugglers JJK last Wednesday.
It will be very interesting to see if the visitors can build on the fine display from the previous round and grab more points on the road this Tuesday when they are about to take on Lahti at Lahden Stadion.
The hosts have one of the weirdest runs out there having drawn five consecutive Veikkausliiga fixtures.
Nonetheless, it was a goalless draw on four occasions before their match finally offered some goals last week when they drew 1-1 with PS Kemi on the road.
Antti Muurinen’s men struggled a lot to find the back of the net having failed to do so in three straight outings.
The negative run has left them at the penultimate position in the league standings, but the light at the end of the tunnel could have been noticed last week when they bagged three in a demolishing win over the rock-bottomed JJK.
Interestingly, Tahtirinnat generally play much better away from home where they lost only a single out of last five matches.
Lahti vs HIFK: Head to head
Lahti have been much more successful in head to head meetings picking up five wins in ten encounters with HIFK.
More importantly, Mustat Kuhnurit have lost only a single game along the way and they came out victorious earlier in the year when they took points from Telia 5G –areena.
Lahti vs HIFK: Prediction
Prior to Lahti’s mentioned victory in the first part of the season, three consecutive H2H clashes between the two sides offered no winner.
Knowing that the hosts drew five times on the bounce ahead of the 15th round fixture, we have no other option but to back such a scenario this Tuesday.
