Owing to an otherwise available squad, there’s only the sole fitness worry for the FC Lahti gaffer Ilir Zeneli to be concerned about. Tim Martinen (Achilles tendon rupture) misses out for this game.
It looks to us that FC Honka should get the goals that they need when they meet FC Lahti, who will not find it easy to find the back of the net.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a 2-0 victory for FC Honka at the end of the match.
