Nõmme Kalju fans will want a repeat of their previous result, being the 1-3 Meistriliiga triumph vs Viljandi Tulevik.
It’s been seldom in recent games that Nõmme Kalju have shown defensive steel. The facts show that Roosad Pantrid have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 games, leaking 6 goals along the way. Such a trend might not be carried forward here, however.
Going into this contest, Nõmme Kalju have not beaten Flora in their previous 4 league matches.
Flora will go into the meeting after a 0-4 Meistriliiga win to beat Kuressaare in their most recent match.
A succession of resolute displays from the Flora defence has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded amounting to 4 from their previous 6 clashes in total. Over that same period of time, their own forwards have managed to score 16.
Looking at their past form shows that Flora:
- haven't been beaten by Nõmme Kalju in games played away from home for the previous 2 league games.
- haven't been defeated in their previous 14 away league matches. What a run it has been.
Head to head
An examination of their prior head to head meetings going back to 28/08/2019 shows that Nõmme Kalju have won 1 of them and Flora 3, with the number of drawn matches being 2.
In all, 14 goals were yielded between them during those clashes, with 5 of them from Roosad Pantrid and 9 being from Kaktused. This gives an average number of goals per game equal to 2.33.
Team News: Nõmme Kalju
Nõmme Kalju boss Marko Kristal doesn’t have any fitness worries whatsoever coming into this game owing to a completely healthy squad ready to go.
Team News: Flora
Thanks to a mainly full-strength squad, there is just the sole fitness problem for the Flora boss Jürgen Henn to be concerned with. Mark Anders Lepik (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out for this game.
We’ve got the feeling that Nõmme Kalju are dangerous enough to score a goal against this Flora lineup, although just one goal possibly won’t quite be as many as the goals that they could concede.
We’ve gone for a close game with a 1-2 victory for Flora after 90 minutes. Hopefully this is a good one.
