Bottom club JJK has not had an easy time in the Veikkausliiga. The team has won only once and are 5 points already from the relegation play-off place and 12 points from actual safety despite having a game in hand. The team just does not have a strong enough squad at this level and they require a top game in order to get anything in these games. They have lost their last 3 games with a goal difference 1-9. In their last home game against 11th side HIFK, they lost easily 0-3 without being able to create almost nothing. The team has been suffering from summer flu and the decision on who will play will be made just prior to the game.

FC Lahti has been the king of draws and unders this season. They have lost only twice and have 8 draws. Prior to the last round win over HIFK (4-1), they had 5 games ending in a draw. Also do not look too closely to the 4-1 win. Three of those goals were gifted by the HIFK defense. But thanks to that win, FC Lahti climbed to 4th position. From this game FC Lahti will be without Hassan Sesay and long term injured Pavel Osipov and Drilon Shala. Hendrik Helmke and Aleksi Paananen are doubts.

The teams have met twice this season with FC Lahti winning 3-2 in the Cup and in the league the points were shared 1-1 in Lahti.

Starting line ups:
JJK: Pyhäranta – Suoraniemi, Tapaninen, Nieminen – Kohonen, Manninen, Poutiainen, Leppänen, Kari – Etock, Petrescu
Lahti: Vasiutin – Hauhia, Jovanovic, Taimi, Hertsi – Kekkonen, Kärkkäinen, Kuningas, Hostikka – Stenio, Simonovski

Prediction:

It will be a close game but Lahti should win by exactly 1 game.
