Our prediction for this Finland Veikkausliiga match:
KuPS will be aiming to retain top position in the standings when they take on Lahti on Sunday. KuPS are leading the chase for the Veikkausliiga trophy, but Helsinki are still breathing down their neck, meaning that Sunday’s clash is of big importance for the league leaders. Head coach Simo Valakari could rest several first-team regulars for the Conference League encounter with Dila Gori.
Lahti, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against Inter Turku, and they managed to get one. The visitors did well to put an end to their dreadful winless run, but they will have a mountain to climb in the Vare Areena game. Anyhow, the share of spoils is on the cards as Simo Valakari’s troops will be with one eye on the Conference League clash with Dila Gori. As for the visiting team, Macoumba Kandji is pushing for a start after scoring the winner against Inter Turku.
