HJK is already the double champion but they would still like to get a win over their rivals FC Lahti. Lahti has fallen into a bit of bad form and they have dropped to 4th position and risk going out of Europe.

HJK is the best home team in the league losing only to RoPS this season. They have several injuries especially to defensive players but the depth in the team is huge and they are able to quality in each game. This is why they keep winning despite already confirmed as champions in the league and Cup winners.

FC Lahti lost to IFK Mariehamn in the last match. They have struggled a bit at home and one of the main reasons for this is the quality of their home pitch which is natural grass. At this time of year, the condition is not the best which affects their play. They need a fast pace pitch to get the best use out of their playing style and artificial at the Telia Arena could provide that.

The teams have met twice this season with both matches ending in a 0-0 draw.

Starting line-ups:
HJK: Dähne – Rafinha, Obilor, Onovo, Pirinen – Annan, Lingman – Savage, Valencic, Atom – Pelvas
Lahti: Pakkanen – Sesay, Voutilainen, Kärkkäinen, Hauhia – Helmke, Paananen, Hertsi, Hostikka – Anier, Simonovski


Lahti can get something out of this game. Lahti team goals over 0.5 is the main bet.
