This is a match between two teams who are really tough to beat. FC Lahti is currently 4th with 20 points. They have lost only once all season (RoPS). FC Honka is 6th with 15 points and they have lost only twice this season (SJK and HJK).

FC Lahti has been really good this season but sometimes they just fail to put the ball into the net. They have lost only once this season and that was against RoPS. In that game they did not have any of their main strikers available. In all the other matches they have won 5 and drawn 5. Their defense has been excelletn with only 8 goals conceded in 11 games. Only RoPS has a better record (8 in 12 games). Offensively though they have scored only 12 goals which is just a bit over 1 per game. This is not that they do not create chances as they do. Their forwards just cannot put the ball into the net.

FC Honka got a big win against Ilves in the last round as they won 4-1. That was their first time this season that they have managed to score over two goals in a single game. Honka has struggled in scoring goals but now the ketchup bottle seems to have opened. They almost beat HJK in the previous round having led 0-2 in the second half but two red cards were enough for HJK to come back and win 3-2. Honka is a solid team and they do not look like a normal promoted team. They have the capability to get up to the top-3 if they can continue scoring goals.
