THE TEAM NEWS

PAIDE

  • Paide suffered a shock loss in their opening home game of the season as they were defeated by Tulevik with that loss seeing them fail to build on their eight-goal show against Tallinna Kalev.
  • It was an underwhelming performance from the home side and they were only able to get themselves on the scoresheet late in the contest with Edrisa Lubega bagging a consolation deep into stoppage time.
  • That loss was just Paide’s second in 12 home matches in the Meistriliiga and they will get a quick shot at redemption here with goalscorer Lubega pushing for a spot in the starting XI here.

KURESSAARE

  • Kuressaare made it two losses in a row to begin the new campaign as they were on the end of a 0-2 loss at home to Nomme Kalju thanks to a poor start to the contest.
  • Rauno Tutk put through his own net in just the fourth minute before Kalju doubled their lead midway through the first half with Kuressaare unable to find a way back into the game.
  • They have now failed to score in either of their opening matches to start the season and will need to improve in front of goal here while they will be boosted at the back with Marco Lukka back after serving a one-match ban.

THE PREDICTION

Paide will have been left hugely disappointed at losing in midweek, especially after they were so impressive in their opening game of the campaign. Their shock home loss to Tallinna Kalev will leave them with a point to prove in this contest against Kuressaare and with the visitors failing to even find the back of the net in either of their two games so far, Paide should be able to respond with a big win.
