SJK vs Lahti
Date: Wednesday, 4 July 2018
Kick-Off at 16:30 UK
Venue: OmaSP Stadion (Seinajoki).
Relegation-troubled SJK are going to face Lahti in the 18th round of Finnish Veikkausliiga in Wednesday afternoon.
SJK is a side is in a poor form lately as they managed to pick up just a point from the last four rounds. They have the same number of points as TPS who are the first team below the red line and Aleksey Eremenko needs to find the winning formula urgently.
The hosts are not too bad in defending their goal, however their main trouble is converting the chances into goals. They haven’t played well in front of the home crowd as they booked only two wins at their ground.
On the other hand, Lahti are in a great form as they haven’t lost in the last twelve occasions. With two straight victories they managed to launch themselves to the 3rd spot and if they continue playing like this they may even get involved into the title battle.
Mikko Hauhia and the lads are playing very tight and although they haven’t scored too many goals, their defence is the best in the competition.
SJK vs Lahti: Head-to-head
When these two sides are facing each other, home crowd is usually able to enjoy victories of their teams. In this millennium, we were able to see just one away win in their clashes ad Lahti were the ones who managed to get back home with a cup victory. Their last three matches ended with just one goal per match.
SJK vs Lahti: Prediction
The visitors are in a much better form, and although the visitor in their head to head clashes hardly manage to snatch some points, we are backing an away victory in this one. Lahti should be able to extend their unbeatable record.
Since the hosts are pretty inefficient and Lahti are very hard to crack, in this one we shouldn’t be able to see more than three goals. In addition to that, their encounter are usually low scoring ones.
