Bottom club TPS is in desperate need of points. They have won only one game this season and they are already 5 points from direct safety. FC Lahti has been very strong this season having lost only once. They are 4th at the moment but they have played 1 or 2 games less than the top 3 teams.

TPS is not just looking for their first home win this season, they are also looking for their first goal at home this season. They have played six matches at home and they have drawn 3 and lost 3. In those 6 games, they have not scored a goal and conceded 4. All their games have been tight with the exception of their last game on Tuesday against SJK that they lost 4-0. At home though, their only lost by more than 1 goal was again to SJK but that match was played on neutral venue. The big problem for TPS is scoring goals and it wont get any easier against FC Lahti who have one of the best defenses in the league.

FC Lahti has been really good this season and with better finishing, they would be fighting with HJK for the title. But as luck would have it, they just cannot score from all the chances they have had. They have won only 5 games and drawn 6 with only 1 loss. In each game, they dominate the match and create a lot of chances, but the finishing is just not there. Their defense is already one of the best in the league. Lahti is 2-3-1 on the road this season.
