Lahti to win
Lahti’s form at the Lahden Stadion was problematic last season, though their performances and results on their own patch have been much improved in the early parts of the fresh campaign. Lahti started with a bang when they beat a fancied FC Inter team on May 3 and their return of three victories from four matches on home soil suggests they are playing with enough confidence to claim maximum points again when HIFK visit.
Total goals over 2.5
75% of Lahti’s home games so far this season have produced over 2.5 goals and The Black Drones’ clash with HIFK on Wednesday evening has all the makings of another entertaining tussle. Each of the last three Veikkausliiga meetings between the clubs delivered a minimum of three goals and another end-to-end skirmish is anticipated this week.
Both teams to score
HIFK are the only Veikkausliiga outfit with a 100% scoring rate since the new campaign kicked off and having notched at least once in each of their first seven fixtures of the season, they look dangerous enough to extend their impressive run. Lahti meanwhile, are averaging 2.0 goals per 90 minutes and they have the firepower to blow holes in the HIFK defence.
Lahti vs HIFK: Preview, Analysis, and Opinion
Lahti fell just short of making the cut for continental qualification last term and their early performances this season suggest they should be right in the mix for a top-four finish again. Their home form (three wins from four) has been a particular highlight and manager Ilir Zeneli will hope to see more game-changing moments from promising midfield goal-getter Jasin-Amin Assehnoun this week.
Spanish coach Joaquín Gómez – who was appointed in January early this year – had a busy off-season reshaping his squad and with new additions key, HIFK have made a solid start to the 2021 campaign. HIFK have won three of their last four games and their heavy 4-1 defeat to Inter Turku remains their only loss of the season so far.
