This is the top match of the round as FC Lahti who are 3rd will host KuPS who are 4th two points behind.

FC Lahti got back to winning ways as they beat JJK 2-4 last week and especially their offense worked really well compared to the previous two games that ended in losses.  Ilves won their own game yesterday so Lahti dropped to 3rd position, but will want to get back to second. Lahti is a difficult team to beat at home as they have only lost two matches this season (5-5-2) but one of those losses came against today´s opponent KuPS. Lahti will miss only the long term injured and Oskari Kekkonen from this game. All other players are available.

KuPS got a 2-1 home win last week against SJK but again that win came at home. Their home form is really strong but on the road they have gotten only 1 win in their last 5 games, losing the other 4. That win came only against poor HIFK so they have a lot to improve on their away form. In their previous matches, they have been scoring a lot of late goals so even if they are behind they have the confidence to know that they can come back. For this match, they have no new injuries or suspensions so they will get a good line-up here.

The teams have met twice this season with KuPS winning the first match in Lahti 1-2. In Kuopio, Lahti was leading 0-2 already but KuPS came back to draw 2-2.

Starting line ups:
Lahti: Vasiutin – Taimi, Kärkkäinen, Jovanovic, Hauhia – Hertsi, Helmke, Paananen, Hostikka – Simonovski, Anier
KuPS: Virtanen – Nissinen, Boxall, Coulibaly, Sorsa – Reuben, Pennanen – Savolainen, Purje, Niskanen – Salami

Prediction:

Lahti is our pick here but as they play a lot of draws, we will make it a draw no bet option.
