Veikkausliiga Round Eight preview

FC Lahti v FF Jaro

Lahti are missing Vanninen, while Jaro will be without Kullström, Je. Portin, Junnila, Koivisto, Svanbäck and Wargh. With Jaro in awful form following two 4-0 defeats, it should be a home win. But then this is Lahti…

TPS v IFK Mariehamn

TPS are without Valakari, Heinikangas, Ääritalo, Cleaver and Sarajärvi, and IFK will leave Norrmén, Sjölund, Rikama, Isaksson and Blomberg in Mariehamn. TPS are formidable at home and will be looking to put their campaign back on track.

HJK v MyPa

No players out bar the long-term injuries, but both teams will want to win to get back among the chasing pack behind Inter. It could well be a draw.

KTP v Honka

Honka don’t travel well, and even though KTP are without Ikävalko and Vartiainen I expect them to get something out of this game. They have to get a point sometime, don’t they? Honka travel without Koskinen, Patronen and possibly Weckström.

KuPS v Inter

Kinnaslampi, Hartikainen are out for kuPS, while Inter travel to Kuopio with a 17 man squad excluding Furuholm, who is out for the season, and Gustafsson, who played for Inter’s farm team Sinimustat yesterday.

Haka v RoPS

No injury news as yet, but it should be a home win after haka’s emphatic victory in Pietersaari. popvitch can still do the business, especially when his team mates also turn up to play.

VPS v TamU

Again, no team news, but TamU have never won in Vaasa. I’d be surprised if they did so tomorrow.

  1. Lahti-Jaro should be interesting because Ilkka Mäkelä has said that 19-year-old Juha Tuomi will play in goal instead of Santzpeteri.
