Legion v Pärnu
The 2 teams that occupy the relegation places face off in the last game of the season with nothing but bragging rights up for grabs. Pärnu are already relegated automatically with Legion occupying the relegation play-off spot, with Legion being in the better form.
Pärnu have lost 30 games out of 35 and have found the season to be incredibly hard going, the last few weeks has seen an improvement in form but still resulting in 3 straight defeats.
Legion’s form has also improved picking up some draws and wins, their youthful side has finally started to click but unfortunately a little bit too late.
Legion have the upper hand when playing Pärnu this season with 2 wins and a draw, with 2 of their 3 total clean sheets coming against the basement club, with both sides struggling to keep the goals out with 175 goals conceded between this season, that’s not to say that this game will have goals in it, as in recent weeks both sides have kept the score low.
In Legion’s last 5 games an O2.5 score line has only been achieved once and in Pärnu’s last 5 the O2.5 has been achieved twice, so it may not be the goal fest you’d usually expect with these two teams.
Pärnu have been woeful all season except for a few bright glimpses whereas Legion have performed very well considering their financial position, just the lack of experience let them down in the end. Legion should have just enough to see of Pärnu, both sides have improved with neither scoring or conceding to what they would normally average, with Pärnu looking completely out of ideas.
Kalev v Kalju
With just 1 game remaining, Kalju still find themselves with something to play for, European football. Originally in the driving seat for the final european spot, a run of unconvincing results have found themselves slipping to 4th position. A massive game against Paide last week in which Kalju lost, saw Paide go into 3rd place. Kalju know what they need to do, and that’s win.
Kalev can still finish 7th in the table. An amazing feat for a team who only had 3 weeks to prepare for top flight football, and were widely tipped to be the whipping boys of the league. Continuing onto their 3 game unbeaten streak, Kalev shocked the Estonian football world by stealing a point off of league champions Flora Tallinn, to extend their run to 4 matches unbeaten.
Kalju striker, Alex Tamm is being eased back from his hip injury and will be using this game to show the Eesti national team what they’re missing by adding to his career best 12 leagues this season.
Kalev will be turning to 37 year old striker Ats Purje, who has 4 goals in his last 4 matches and 10 in total for the season, whilst Ioan Yakovlev, one of the signings of the season , has contributed 20 goals and will be looking to add to that.
Kalju have a 100% record against Kalev this season, whilst scoring 11 goals in those 3 matches. You have to go back to 2019 and 9 matches for the last time that Kalev took any points off of Kalju in a 2-2 draw.
With European football at stake, there’s only one way this game should be going.
Flora v Levadia
The final game of the season see’s the 2 biggest teams in Estonia face off. Unfortunately, the title has already been decided with Flora taking their crown back off of Levadia, who won the title last year.
Flora have been impressive this season, winning 30 of their 35 matches so far this season and will be kicking themselves about losing the unbeaten record a few weeks ago. A non-Flora like performance last weekend against Kalev, saw them draw 1-1. A game in which they should be winning 5 or 6-0
Levadia will be looking forward to putting this season behind them. The early season favourites are the start of the season, it turned into an absolute season. Currently 15 points behind Flora, out of the cup, on their 4th head coach of the season. A 1-1 draw with Narva last weekend following some other poor performances will not bring the confidence into this fierce rivalry.
Despite everything in the league being decided, don’t expect these two to go easy on each other or play fringe players. Flora haven’t lost a league game against Levadia since 2019 and will want that record to continue against a fierce rival. Levadia will be hoping to change their fortunes and build some confidence for the start of next season. Flora should continue their fantastic season and end it on a high.
