Narva v Parnu
Coming into the final stretch of the season, with just 11 games left to play, Narva seems all but safe in the Meistriliiga after earlier worries. A half decent run of form over the last few months mixed with some absolute dire performances. Narva head into this game following an absolute stinking performance in a 3-1 defeat to Kure, one that left the fans absolutely fuming. With 7 games remaining against teams around them in the league, Narva will be hoping to build a run of form against a woeful Parnu.
Parnu now look all but relegated. Even with 11 games remaining. They haven’t won a game since 6th May. Losing 11 games since and only picking up 2 draws. It’s hard to see where points are going to come from. A disaster of a recent game against relegation threatened Tallinna Kalev went from sweet to bitter in a matter of seconds. Down to 9 men and leading 2-1 in the 90th minute, Kalev managed to turn the game around to win the match 3-2
Narva are without the injured, Zakarlyuka and Mihhailov, other than that will have a full squad to pick from. Volodmyr Pryiomov has started to find some form in front of goal and could be the difference maker here. Parnu are without Kase and Mark who got sent off against Kalev and will be short defensively. Kevin Kauber scored twice in that game, and he’ll be the one to watch for Parnu.Narva will be thankful to be playing Parnu now, winning their last 3 games and scoring at least 3 in each of those matches. Parnu just don’t seem like winning a game anytime soon, the 2nd worst defence in the league could be in for a long afternoon.
Legion v Tallinna Kalev
The future seems bleak for Legion who have now lost 8 games in a row, a 2-0 defeat against Tammeka at the weekend sees them rooted in the bottom 2. The next 2 games for Legion is going to be the deciding factor in what division they will play next season as they come up against Tallinna Kalev and Pärnu.
Kalev are in high spirits after beating relegation rivals Pärnu in a 3-2 thriller and they will come into this game with the confidence of knowing a win should all but guarantee Premium Liiga football in 2023.
Legion and their youthful team seem to have finally run out of steam, from what looked promising in the middle of the season, now looks like relegation is on the cards. Losing their last 8 games, and only managing to find the net in 4 of those, Legion are really lacking up front and have finally run out of ideas.
Despite losing the 2nd most games and conceding a league high, Kalev have won when it matters, getting all their points from those around them. Kalev have many options up front now, and with winger Ioan Yakovlev collecting his 12th assist of the season, the Kalev players are queuing up to get on the end of his crosses.
Both sides leak goals, especially Kalev, conceding 76 goals in just 25 games, with Legion conceding 50, Kalev have the more attacking threat than Legion and do create multiple opportunities, whereas Legion just do not have that quality anymore. It would be surprising to see anything other than a Tallinna Kalev victory.
Flora v Kalju
Another clash between 2 of the big 4. As will be the case for the next few match weeks. Flora come into this unbeaten against the big 4 this season, 4 wins and 2 draws, whilst boasting a 100% record against Kalju. Flora also have the impressive record of being 40 unbeaten in the league, spanning back into last season, winning an incredible 22 games out of 22 so far this season, continuing this run following a 2-1 victory against 4th place Paide at the weekend.
Kalju are a mixed bag when coming up against the big 4. Losing 3 of their 6 against them this season, with 2 against Flora. Kalju are currently on a 5 match unbeaten run, and are looking to build some momentum in the near impossible task of catching 2nd placed Levadia, who they’ve just drew with 1-1.
Goal machine CB Henrik Purg will be missing for Flora through suspension, he’s notched up 3 goals in his last 5 matches. Whilst Kalju will have a full-strength squad to pick from.
Recent matches in this fixture favour Flora, unbeaten against Kalju in their last 10 outings and it’s hard to see them not leaving this match without some kind of points. Despite the matches being closer in recent rounds, Flora’s strength is far superior to Kalju, and should win this game.
