Our prediction for this Finland Veikkausliiga match:
Thursday’s football game at Lahden Stadion pits together Lahti and Ilves, the two teams who are almost level on points in the Veikkausliiga standings. The Black Drones aim to build on back-to-back wins over Honka and Mariehamn, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach on Matchday 10. Midfielder Teemu Penninkangas, who suffered an injury in the triumph over Mariehamn, is unlikely to feature against Ilves.
The visitors, on the other hand, head into the match following back-to-back wins over KuPS and KTP. Considering that both Lahti and Ilves have been impressive in front of goal of late, a high-scoring affair is on the horizon at Lahden Stadion. A man to watch in the away team will be Eetu Vertainen, who scored a brace in the 2-0 win over KTP. You should bear in mind that 12 goals in total have been netted in the previous three meetings between the two sides.
