Our prediction for this Finland Veikkausliiga match:
After sharing the spoils with KuPS in the Veikkausliiga derby, Helsinki will be looking to return to winning ways when they host Lahti at Bolt Arena. HJK are a real force to be reckoned with at home, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the mid-table side. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Tim Vayrynen, who has found his goal-scoring touch of late.
Lahti, on the other hand, did remarkably well to beat TPS 3-1 in their last away game in the Veikkausliiga. The visitors aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, but they should not be looking for points at Bolt Arena. Over the years Helsinki have turned their home ground into a real fortress, and we predict that they will get back on course in the Finnish top flight on Thursday evening.
