Our prediction for this Finland Veikkausliiga match:
Haka will be looking to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over HIFK when they take on Lahti at their Tehtaan Kentta on Matchday 11. Teemu Tainio’s troops did well to put an end to their four-game losing run in Veikkausliiga, with the team regaining a much-needed confidence. Haka are eager to escape the danger zone, and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against Lahti.
Ilir Zeneli’s men, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-1 loss to Ilves. Lahti are not regarded as good travellers, but given Teemu Tainio’s selection worries, we predict that the visitors are going to grab something from the midweek fixture. Forward Salomo Ojala is likely to miss the game with injury for the hosts, while defender Jami Kyostila is definitely out of contention through suspension. Lahti attacker Dimitry Boele is banned for the visiting team.
