Veikkausliiga at Comeon

There’s also action from the Finnish top flight in the Veikkausliiga with SJK taking on Lahti as the betting tips continue at the OmaSP Stadion.

SJK Prediction – Can SJK record third win on trot?

Having registered recent back-to-back wins against VPS 1-0 and a 2-1 win over KPV, Friday night’s hosts will be confident they can grab a third win on the bounce here.

The hosts have registered 3 wins from their last 4 matches overall in the Veikkausliiga with an earlier victory recorded against Inter Turku.

These recent and welcome wins have helped maintain SJK’s push for a top 6 finish in the Veikkausliiga and a place in the Championship Round.

They hold a 4-point cushion ahead of 7th placed Mariehamn ahead of tonight’s clash with Lahti, and they also possess a reasonable record at home too.

An overall home record of 4-1-2 6/4 has produced very few goals so far this season as the hosts have kept 4 clean sheets to date.

Wins over HIFK, KPV, Inter Turku and VPS should give the hosts the momentum they require to grab the spoils in this encounter.

Forward Oliynyk (7 goals) looks the most likely for SJK.

Lahti Prediction – Can Lahti make late surge for top 6 finish?

The answer to this question is probably not as Lahti find themselves 7 points adrift of Friday night’s hosts, SJK.

In addition, the visitors have managed to record just 1 win out of their last 6 matches overall in the Finnish top flight, so the odds are seemingly stacked against them here.

Lahti’s one success during this ordinary looking 6-match sequence was a 1-0 home win over the Veikkausliiga league leaders, Ilves.

However, inconsistency has held Lahti back, especially away from home where they’ve registered just 1 win out of their last 7 matches on their travels.

An away record of 2-2-4 4/11 includes wins at HIFK and Mariehamn, but too many defeats on the road have taken their toll.

Just 3 wins from their last 19 away matches in the Veikkausliiga could spell further trouble for Lahti here on Friday night.

As well as a low win-count on the road is Lahti’s low goalscoring as the visitors have failed to score in 11 of these last 19 away matches.


Key-Facts – SJK v Lahti

  • SJK have recorded recent back-to-back wins in the Veikkausliiga
  • SJK have kept 4 clean sheets to date at home this season
  • Lahti have failed to score in 11 of their last 19 away matches


Betting Tips Verdict

SJK with home advantage should be too strong for a Lahti outfit who have struggled on the road for quite some time.
