Lahti Prediction- Can Lahti break into top six?

As mentioned above, Lahti occupy 8th place in the Finnish top flight and therefore currently occupy a place in the Relegation Round half of the division.

However, just 2 points separate Lahti from 6th placed KuPS at time of writing, and prior to the upcoming midweek action in the Veikkausliiga.

Overall results have seen the hosts lose just 1 of their last 6 matches overall in the Finnish top flight which was a 2-0 defeat away at 4th placed Honka.

Recent wins against HJK 3-0 at home and a 1-0 win away at Mariehamn have helped keep Lahti within striking distance of the top six though.

Indeed, had it not been for a spate of draws to start their season off on home turf at their Lahden Kisapuisto ground, Lahti might already be sitting in the top six.

Four stalemates with KuPS 3-3, Inter Turku 1-1, VPS 1-1 and another 1-1 draw with SJK was then at last followed up with a 3-0 win over the aforementioned HJK.

Lahti’s overall home record therefore stands at a draw-heavy 1-4-0 9/6.

Rovaniemi Prediction – Can Rovaniemi close gap on top six?

Rovaniemi sit just two league positions and 3 points adrift of their hosts, Lahti, prior to this clash on Tuesday night as they too have designs upon a top six finish.

The visitors find themselves 5 points off the pace of 6th placed KuPS and the Championship Round pack as recent form hasn’t done them any favours.

With just 1 win out of their last 5 matches overall in the Finnish top flight, Rovaniemi may find themselves hard pressed to grab all three points in this clash.

However, that win came in the shape of a 1-0 victory away at second from bottom club, VPS, while an away record of 2-1-2 4/7 isn’t too bad at this stage of the season.

An additional 1-0 win at KPV earlier in the season has helped Rovaniemi stay away from the bottom two clubs so far this season.

Rovaniemi do have the incentive though of knowing that all three points in this encounter would likely move them within touching distance of the top six.


Key-Facts – Lahti v Rovaniemi

  • Lahti have lost just 1 of their last 6 matches overall (includes 3 draws)
  • Lahti have drawn 4 of their first 5 matches at home in the Veikkausliiga
  • 3 of the last 6 meetings between these two sides have ended in draws


Betting Tips Verdict

Lahti have drawn 4 of their 5 home matches while Rovaniemi are capable of picking up a point here – this could be another stalemate.
