FC Lahti Preview – Can Lahti consolidate top six spot?

6th placed Lahti occupy the last spot of the top six pack prior to Friday’s clash against basement dwellers, Rovaniemi, so this upcoming fixture represents an ideal opportunity for the hosts to further consolidate their place in the top six of the Veikkausliiga with a win at their Lahden Stadion.

Lahti bring an improved four-match unbeaten sequence into this clash following a slow start to their new Finnish top flight campaign which produced just one win from their opening four matches of this new season, but the hosts will be hoping that their recent momentum brings them a further three points here.

Recent victories over TPS Turku 3-1 away from home along with a 3-2 home win against Ilves Tampere have helped maintain Lahti’s interest in the top half of the division, and following a disastrous 4-0 hammering at the hands of HJK Helsinki, Lahti have steadied the ship with additional points picked up in draws with SJK and Honka.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Rovaniemi Preview – Can RoPS find hope?

Friday evening’s visitors, Rovaniemi (or RoPS for short), head into this important clash at the Lahden Stadion against FC Lahti on the back of some disappointing results which has left the visitors sitting bottom of the Veikkausliiga.

This is perhaps unsurprising when you consider that RoPS have lost six of their opening eight matches of this new Finnish top flight campaign, with only points picked up in draws with Haka and Ilves (both on home turf at their Rovaniemen Keskuskenttä) saving their blushes.

RoPS have lost their first three away matches of this new season on the trot with losses incurred at Inter Turku 3-1 and 1-0 defeats at Honka and Ilves respectively, while the bigger picture paints an even gloomier picture on the road as RoPS are without an away win from their last 11 matches on their travels.
