In the last few years, Inter Turku were among the better teams in Finland, constantly finishing in the upper half of the league table. However, they failed to secure Europe for the last three seasons and are trying to change that this year. Unfortunately, this season is not going according to plan as they are in 8th place with 15 points, already six points away from the Championship Group (6th place), and have played one game more. Now, they will face the weakest team in Veikkausliiga and are under pressure to win points.

In the previous two seasons, Lahti were close to being relegated but managed to escape it. Still, that doesn't seem likely this season if they don't change something. They are currently the last-placed team in Veikkausliiga with only nine points in 13 rounds and with only one win so far! The club even tried to shift negative momentum by changing the head coach, but for now, nothing has changed.

Inter Turku vs Lahti pick: Over 2.5 goals

Inter Turku are in excellent form. They are undefeated in the last five games and have won six of the previous eight matches in all competitions. During their five-game unbeaten run, they have been super impressive offensively, scoring 17 goals - 3.4 per game. Yes, they had one or two weak opponents during that stretch but that is still an impressive record and we are convinced they can score at least a couple goals in this match.

On the other hand, Lahti are in poor form, with only one win (after penalties) in the last nine games. Still, they started scoring regularly in the previous five matches and have done so ten times - two per game. However, due to bad defense, the results were far from impressive. With good offensive and terrible defense performances in those matches, Lahti scored over 2.5 goals in the last five games.

In the previous four h2h games, we saw three or more goals on three occasions. Considering the previous h2h games and all the above, we expect a high-scoring game, most likely with both teams scoring.
