FC Lahti vs RoPS
Finland – Veikkausliiga
Date: Friday, 14 August 2020
Kick-off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Lahden Stadion (Lahti).
FC Lahti is unbeaten in their last four fixtures in the schedule, following a 3-2 home win against Ilves in their previous encounter in the campaign. Three of those four games saw both teams in the scoresheet.
The host has lost only one of their 4 home matches in the league so far this season. They are unbeaten in the last three attempts at home, including a win in the last home match.
In the meantime, RoPS has lost all three outings in their campaign schedule this season until now. It has to be noted that the visitor has scored only one goal on the road so far.
Winless in the league, the rock-bottom Rovaniemi will be far from a threat for the home team. They are in a four-game losing streak in the league, following a 2-3 loss at home against Mariehamn in their previous league clash.
Lahti vs RoPS Head-to-head (h2h)

- Their previous encounter gave a 2-1 home win for Lahti.
- Only one of their last seven fixtures has ended in a draw.
Lahti vs RoPS Prediction
The recent unbeaten streak has pushed FC Lahti to the 6th spot in the table and is 10 points ahead of the visitors. Besides, Ilir Zeneli and his men were undefeated in the last two h2h meetings with Rovaniemi at this venue.
With a four-game losing streak, RoPS doesn’t pose much threat to the home team. And coupled with their poor away form in the campaign, the odds are against the traveling side.
The home win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters. Since Vesa Tauriainen’s men haven’t scored in the last two outings, the host will probably draw the first blood in ninety minutes.
