SJK vs Lahti
Date: Friday, 21st September 2018
Kick-off at 16:30 UK/ 16:30 CET
Venue: OmaSp Stadion (Seinajoki).
Both SJK and Lahti eye vital three points for different reasons when they lock horns at the OmaSp Stadion this Friday.
The 2015 domestic champions SJK are indulged in a whole different fight this term as they are poised to battle against relegation with 5 games left to play. They are currently 2 points above the relegation waters.
SJK’s form coming into this game is less than impressing after managing a humble 8 points from the last 10 matches.
The home form is also inconsistent, yet they bagged full three points in the most recent encounter against the recently promoted TPS.
Lahti are just 1 spot above SJK, but they are only 8 point below the European qualification places.
The Black Drones have been on a downward spiral off late and their last league victory is dated back to July. They drew and lost 4 each since, but those 4 defeats came from the most recent 4.
SJK vs Lahti Head-to-head
- The teams share 2 wins each from their last 4 h2h league meetings. All four games saw 1-0 correct score home wins.
- SJK are unbeaten in the last 7 league matches at home against Lahti.
- The last two matches at the OmaSp Stadion saw 1-0 SJK wins.
- Seven of the last 9 h2h meetings between these two at the OmaSp Stadion saw under 2.5 goals.
SJK vs Lahti Prediction
Both teams are finding it difficult to get going, still SJK are the team in better shape following the 1-0 win against TPS in the most recent home game.
Lahti’s last win both home and away has been 2 months ago. They are certainly low on confidence and they will find it hard to find motivation with little to play for.
It is obvious for SJK to pick three points from this game and a strong h2h record and sterile defensive approach will see them just clearing the hurdle on Friday.
