View all of the Tallinna Kalev v Nõmme Kalju predictions, poll and stats below (plus the best game odds).
Tallinna Kalev are hoping to win again following the 0-1 Meistriliiga success against Kuressaare.
It has been a rare occasion in recent times that Tallinna Kalev have shown defensive steel. The reality is that Kalev have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, letting in 15 goals in the process.
Heading into this contest, Tallinna Kalev have not won at home in their last 8 league matches. They will be so desperate to end this run.
In their previous game, Nõmme Kalju drew 1-1 in the Meistriliiga tie with Tallinna JK Legion.
It has become apparent that Nõmme Kalju have made hard work of scoring goals over their previous six encounters, recording the unsatisfactory return of only 4. In those fixtures, Roosad Pantrid have also seen the overall goal tally of opposing teams equal 8. Still, it remains to be seen if such a trend might be replicated in this next game or not.
Going into this one, Nõmme Kalju haven’t won away from home in the past 2 league matches.
Head to head
Checking on their past head to head results going back to 20/04/2019 reveals that these fixtures have not been good ones for Tallinna Kalev. They have not been able to get any victories at all while Nõmme Kalju have remained in the ascendancy, winning in 83% of those ties.
A lot of goals were also scored during this period, 22 in all which averages out at 3.67 goals per match.
Team News: Tallinna Kalev
Tallinna Kalev manager Aleksandr Dmitrijev will be grateful not to have any fitness concerns at all ahead of this game with a completely injury-free squad available to choose from.
Team News: Nõmme Kalju
Thanks to a fully injury-free squad available to select from, Nõmme Kalju manager Marko Kristal has zero fitness worries to report before this game.
Our assessment is that Tallinna Kalev would be disappointed if they were not to find the back of the net against this Nõmme Kalju outfit, but one goal is unlikely to prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
Therefore, we think that it’s going to be a very close game with a 1-2 winning margin for Nõmme Kalju after the 90. Looking forward to seeing how this one unfolds.
