Lahti vs HJK
Date: Friday, 29 June 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: Lahden Kisapuisto (Lahti).
One of the most interesting matches in the 17th round of Finnish Veikkausliiga is going to be contested between Lahti and HJK. The home team is in a very good momentum as they haven’t lost in the last 11 matches. However, during that period they have been involved in many draw matches so they missed the chance to catch up their rivals on the top spot.
Toni Korkeakunnas’ side suffered just one defeat so far in the season and they have been playing very tight. If Lahti manage to keep up the form, they’ll definitely remain competitive for one of the places in European cups next season.
Away side is the top placed team in the league and they are eight points away from their closest rivals. They manage to build up that advantage after booking seven victories in the last nine matches.
Klauss and the lads have been clinical in front of the oppositions’ goal, while their defence is doing a pretty good job. HJK need to keep playing at the same level and they will secure the title at the end of the season.
Lahti vs HJK: Head-to-head
After HJK’s domination in their head to head clashes, the hosts managed to book two wins in the last five matches. We saw some draw matches lately, and their encounters have been low scoring ones lately.
Lahti vs HJK: Prediction
Both teams are playing very well lately and this one will be a very tight match. It wouldn’t be surprising if it ends with a draw which would be the ninth for the hosts this season.
Although the visitors are very productive, they will have much troubles to crack the opponents. We shouldn’t expect to see many goals, at most tow in the match, as Lahti are playing very disciplined football, especially at home ground.
