IFK Mariehamn vs FC Lahti Prediction – Veikkausliiga – 05/30

IFK Mariehamn vs FC Lahti prediction on May 30, 2021. IFK Mariehamn is playing at their home ground in the next round of the Veikkausliiga 2021, their goal will be to win or at least the score to break the circuit for now. However, that goal is not easy when IFK Mariehamn has to welcome FC Lahti.

IFK Mariehamn Overview

IFK Mariehamn had a dream start in Veikkausliiga 2021 with 2 victories in both opening matches when only having to welcome moderate opponents like FC Honka or AC Oulu. However, so far, that is all they can do, because, in the next 2 rounds, IFK Mariehamn had to receive 2 consecutive defeats. That achievement also pushed IFK Mariehamn to 6th place on the chart up to now. IFK Mariehamn’s strikers were completely empty in the last two defeats, which is considered a huge reason why the team could not control the game and had to concede goals.

FC Lahti Overview

FC Lahti is a relatively unlucky team when facing a heavy schedule right from the first rounds. Despite winning against runner-up Inter Turku on an opening day, FC Lahti could not surprise the defending champions of the past 2 consecutive seasons, KuPS and HJK with 2 defeats immediately after. Recently, however, FC Lahti has partly regained the image of defeating FC Honka to find the joy of victory. FC Lahti is considered to have a cautious and sometimes pragmatic way of playing.

Asian Bet – IFK Mariehamn vs FC Lahti prediction

After winning all 6 points in the first 2 rounds, Mariehamn quickly returned to the ground with 2 consecutive defeats and did not score 1 goal. The last 3 times to welcome Lahti at home, coach Lukas Syberyjski’s men could not win any victories with 1 loss and 2 draws. The home team of Wiklöf Holding Arena is still heavily dependent on foreign soldiers and when they do not play well, IFK’s performance is also dragged down. Therefore, it is not likely that Mariehamn can retain points even though playing at home.
