FC Lahti has been very inconsistent in their results but their defense still holds. They have not conceded a goal in 3 games now after beating IFK Mariehamn 0-2 and then earning two 0-0 draws against HJK and FC Inter. Their problem is in the offense, they just cannot create enough chances to score goals. HJK and Inter both deserved to win those matches but when you have a solid defensive system and one of the best goalkeepers in the league, you always have a chance to get something.

VPS has been one of the best teams in the league if you do not count their opening two games against HJK and SJK. They are on a 5W-3D-1L run since the then and are on 3rd position in the standings.  In the start of the season VPS saw a lot of high scoring games. So far they have scored 17 goals (2nd highest) but also conceded 18 goals (4th highest). Those high scoring games though seem to be a thing in the past and they are returning to the rhythm from last season. In their last 5 games, 4 of them have ended with under 2.5 goals. They are struggling to score goals again, like last season. They did score 4 against JJK but most of those goals came in the end when JJK was playing with 10 players. In the other 4 games, they scored only 3 times. They did get back some defensive players and are again a team who are difficult to score against.

Last season the teams met 3 times with FC Lahti winning the first home game 4-0. VPS then won at home 1-0 and the last match in Vaasa ended 0-1 to Lahti.

Starting line ups:
FC Lahti: Vasiutin – Hauhia, Kärkkäinen, Jovanovic, Sesay – Paananen, Helmke – Hostikka, Kuningas, Simonovski – Stenio
VPS: Meerits – Levänen, Viitikko, Koskimaa, Lampi – Hakola, Voutilainen, Sohna, Jurgensson, Lähde – Clennon

Prediction:

Under 2.25 goals
