FC Lahti vs FC Inter Turku
Date: Saturday, 7 July 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: Lahden Kisapuisto (Lahti).
Lahti and FC inter are going to wrap up the Saturday’s action in 19th round of Finnish Veikkausliiga.
Home side is enjoying a pretty good campaign as they are currently sitting on the 5th spot. However, they lost in the last round after 12 matches without suffering a defeat, and that one was the second in the season.
Lahti are going to fight for one of the places in Europa League next season as they have the same number of points as third placed KuPS, but they’ve played two games less than their rivals.
Mikko Hauhia and the lads are playing very tight this season ald although they haven’t produced too many goals, their defence is the second best in the league.
The visitors are putting disappointing performances lately as they failed to book a win in the last five rounds.
Although John Allen’s s ide is not so bad in the front, their poor defensive record is giving them many troubles. FC Inter are only four points ahead of the danger zone and they need to improve their game, especially when playing in front of their fans.
In fact, they are playing very well away from home and they managed to get back home with a win in three occasions.
Lahti vs Inter Turku: Head-to-head
Lahti have been much better in their head to head clashes and the visitors managed to celebrate just once in the last five years. Their encounters are moderate scoring ones, however sometimes they can be very efficient.
Lahti vs Inter Turku: Prediction
The hosts are strong favourites in this one although FC inter are performing very well when playing away from home.
Lahti haven’t lost at home yet in this campaign and they allowed just five goals when playing in front of their fans. They should be able to keep up the battle for the place in continental competitions next season.
Although the hosts haven’t been involved in too many efficient clashes this season, this one might go over 2.5 margin since the visitors have the second worst defence in the league.
Thus, Inter are also capable of scoring as well and in this one we should expect to see at least three goals.
