HIFK and FC Lahti know each other really well as HIFK has several players who have played for either FC Lahti in the past or have played under FC Lahti head coach Toni Korkeakunnas. Because of this, it was no wonder that all the matches last season between the teams ended in a draw.

HIFK has started their season with two 0-0 draws against PS Kemi and JJK who are both expected to be in the bottom half of the table when the season ends. They have been able to create chances but have not been able to score yet. Their striker Pekka Sihvola who has started both matches but who was out of action for 6 months prior to the start of the season is celebrating his birthday today. He believes that soon he will be back to normal and scoring goals again, maybe already today.

FC Lahti have not played for almost 3 weeks now. This will be their 3rd away game in a row after they drew 1-1 against strong home teams SJK and Ilves. Their team looks stronger this season but they will miss Hendrik Helmke from this match due to suspension. Pyry Kärkkäinen is fit again but as he has been out for a long time, they might not risk him for 90 minutes.
