IFK Mariehamn vs FC Lahti
Finland – Veikkausliiga
Date: Sunday, 2nd June 2019
Kick-off at 16.30 UK/ 17.30 CET
Venue: Wiklöf Holding Arena (Mariehamn).
Mariehamn took their home advantage to a whole another level the last time they lined up at home. In the first minute itself, they broke the hearts of VPS fans and opened their account. For the rest of the game, the visitors played catch-up, and could not record an equalizer at all. The game became a bit rough in the latter half, as the ref had to use four yellows, compared to none in the first.
Lahti too shares a similar tale, but alas at the receiving end. The team was on the road and conceded in the 7th minute itself. Their efforts to level the game was not fruitful, and later they had to suffer the humiliation of an own goal too.
