Kalju v Tammeka
Kalju end their run of games against the bottom 5 by coming up against the inconsistent Tammeka. Kalju have been playing with some real purpose in the last few games winning their last 3 in comfortable fashion.
Tammeka are coming off a 5-2 win against Kalev and now find themselves just 1 point behind Narva in 6th, but more importantly there now lies an 11-point gap between them and the relegation places.
Both sides have tendencies to be incredibly poor but can also play some decent stuff. On paper for Kalju they have a squad that should be much closer to the top 2 than what they are but some poor displays have cost them. Tammeka are similar in that they have lost games they should have won, by simply not taking their chances.
This game will be interesting in how each side will show up, Kalju’s strike duo of Aleksandr Volkov and Alex Tamm is starting to get some momentum with 18 goals between them. Tammeka scored 5 goals in their last game, their first goals in 3 games – perhaps a confidence booster.
In the 2 previous meetings this season, the 1st finished in a 1-1 draw, whilst the 2nd finished in a comfortable 3-1 win for Kalju. Kalju usually do have the upper hand when playing Tammeka and it’s likely they will come away with a win in this one, however Tammeka are a team that can cause difficulties and if Kalju are having a slightly off day, Tammeka can take advantage of that.
Kuressaare v Levadia
Kure are having their best season ever, and the season is barely 75% completed. Collecting 9 wins from 23 games, Kure find themselves sat in 5th, an unbelievable achievement considering recent years battling relegation. Their opponents Levadia are on a 5-game winning streak, keeping a clean sheet in the last 4, and finally beginning to show some displays that made them league champions last year.
Kure’s league form has been patchy with a lot of draws but giving credit they have picked up points against the big 4 except leaders Flora, and only have 3 losses in their last 10 is seriously impressive. Levadia’s form right now is incredible. Unbeaten in their last 14, winning 12 – one of those draws being against today’s opponents in Kuressaare.
Levadia have made some moves in the transfer market, bringing in several foreign players, whilst also introducing youth players into the 1st team. An important departure being Brazilian striker Liliu, he didn’t quite hit the heights that was expected of him, scoring just 6 goals. Kure have been quiet in the window, only replacing goalkeeper Kristen Lapa with Ingmar Paplavskis, both of which are on Flora’s books.
Levadia will always be the favourites for this game and despite how close games have been this season, Levadia’s last 5 games shows that they will be the team on the front foot. Kure will come and give a game and playing at home that advantage will cause problems for Levadia with the loud support of the loyal Kure fans. Kure have never beaten Levadia and it’s unlikely it will change in this game.
