Our prediction for this Finland Veikkausliiga match:
Friday’s football game at Lahden Stadion pits together Lahti and Mariehamn, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. Lahti have found their best form of late, with the team beating both SJK and HIFK in the previous two league fixtures. Even though Togo international Henri Eninful suffered an injury in the victory over HIFK, the hosts are seen as favourites to win the Lahden Stadion clash.
Mariehamn, on the other hand, aim to build on a 3-1 win over KTP. Lukas Syberyjski’s troops are eager to move closer to top six, but beating Lahti on the road is easier said than done. Experienced Nigerian attacker Kennedy Igboananike is likely to return to the starting XI after finding the net in the triumph over KTP. Anyhow, home win should be considered as Lahti have been showing signs of improvement of late.
