KUPS Kuopio host FC Lahti in Finnish top-flight

The Finnish top-flight campaign is half-way through and in terms of every issue in the league, there is everything to play for.

One team eying up the big prize of the Veikkausliiga title is KUPS Kuopio. On Tuesday evening, they host Lahti, who are on the cusp of the Championship group and hoping to enjoy a stronger second half of the campaign than their first.

No side has been that consistent in the Finnish top-flight this season, which is good news for KUPS, who are fourth-place in the table and just a point off the top of the table Inter Turku.

There is only three points between every team in the top six, so they all have a chance of finishing as top dogs in the Veikkausliiga this season.

Heading into the last ten games of the campaign, the home side will be looking for a touch more consistency, as they have won just twice in their last five games.

Their recent league games have also been tight affairs, with under 2.5 goals scored in four of their last five outings. The tight games show that there is a fine line between winning and losing in the Finnish top-flight for the home side.

Lahti have enjoyed a highly inconsistent campaign and currently sit eighth place in the Finnish top-flight table. Their current position means the visitors are in the relegation group. However, a win could move them into the top six and also just two points behind the home side.

The sides being that close together in terms of points would make sense, as there has been little to choose between the two teams in recent seasons. In fact, four of their last six meetings have finished all square.

However, Forebet predicts that this clash will end in a low-scoring home win to enhance KUPS chances of winning the league this season.
