This is the final match for FC Lahti in the group stage and they need a win here. GrIFK still has 1 more game after this but they have already lost their chance to progress in the Group C.

Veikkausliiga team FC Lahti is still undefeated in the Cup this season but their performances have not been that good. They beat Ykkönen team FC Haka only 2-1 in the opening match. They then wasted a 0-2 lead against Kakkonen team Viikingit and only managed a draw 2-2. They then beat Ykkönen team JJK 4-2 thanks to two last minute goals but JJK was all over them for many parts in the game and did not deserve to lose. They also led against Veikkausliiga team Ilves 0-2 but lost that lead also and only drew 2-2. They have thus conceded in every game despite playing most against lower division teams.

GrIFK has lost all their games so far but no one expected much from them. They got relegated to the Kakkonen after last season and have been late to build a team for the new season. They have a good squad but it lacks depth. Most of the core players played in Ykkönen last season so they will fight for promotion this season. They have fought in each match and can fight here also

Starting Line ups:
Lahti: Shishkovski – Hauhia, Voutilainen, Jovanovic, Dmitrijev – Paananen, Gela – Hertsi, Sadat, Hostikka – Stenio
GrIFK: Lindeman – Stevens, Sapienza, Britschgi, Pitkänen – Langhoff S, Ilomäki, Luoto, Kaasinen – Meyer, Langhoff D

Prediction:

Both teams to score is the main pick.
