22-10-9 (wins/draws/losses). These are the numbers for Nõmme Kalju when playing away games on grass, which is not the surface they have on their own home stadium (which has artifical turf). Their goal statistics from those 41 matches are 77-37 (scored/conceded).

Vaprus form and stats

With 2 Meistriliiga wins, 2 draws and 7 defeats from their home games, Vaprus are certainly not brimming with confidence. It's trouble wherever Vaprus are playing these days as they have suffered five straight defeats now, regardless of arena. They really need to get back to winning ways.

A. Krutogolov was the last player to score a league goal for Vaprus and it's becoming a more and more distant memory as Vaprus haven't scored in 484 minutes.

No payout for Vaprus in their previous match, an away game at Levadia that ended in defeat 0-5. As you see from the result above, Vaprus suffered greatly in their last game. Thankfully the team has a new chance to prove themselves in this one.

Prior to that, an away loss at Kuressaare.

The match schedule is unforgiving for Vaprus as they have a new game in only four days, a Meistriliiga match thankfully also at home. Tammeka are visiting.

Vaprus aren't scoring a lot here at Pärnu Rannastaadion in the league, with only 9 goals from 11 games. Defensively there's plenty of potential for improvement as Vaprus have allowed the opposition to score 33 goals here at Pärnu Rannastaadion. This has been a stadium of sighs so far as Vaprus have let the opposition score 33 times, an average of more than three per game.
