Normally coach Toni Korkeakunnas plays in 4-2-3-1, privileging possession of the ball and attacks by the flanks, but in this game he must act in a more direct way: Hostikka and Hertsi must play for the wings, both being very competent in the offensive transition. The maintenance of possession of the ball is a strong point of the Lahti. There are no absences of weight for this game.
