FK Zalgiris Team News
Last season, the team from Lithuania won the title in the domestic championship more easily than expected. With this team, they refused the opportunity to fight for the same success – placement in the group stage of the Champions League.
Last season they were stopped in the second round, and the goal of the club management is to take a step forward this season. Considering that it was 1:1 in the first match, we can say that the home team has an “active score”.
Although they conceded a goal very early in the first match, they managed to fight back immediately, so now it’s time to show that they are the absolute favorites on their home field.
Zalgiris has been very awkward in front of its fans for years, and since the stakes are very high, we believe that the support from the stands will be very important.
KF Ballkani Team News
KF Ballkani has achieved historic success by placing itself in these qualifications. Namely, this is their first participation in the Champions League qualifiers, and there is no doubt that they are motivated to make the best possible impression.
It seems they missed their chance in the first game. They got to the advantage very early, but they didn’t have enough experience and concentration to keep that advantage. Although they created chances and were more dominant on the field, Zalgiris managed to “get away”.
Although they were dominant in national championship, we think that the lack of “European experience” will cost them dearly.
They are facing an opponent who has been present in these qualifications for years, and this very experience can easily be a decisive factor.
These two teams played only one match against each other, and that was a week ago when it was 1:1.
Injuries and suspensions
Neither of these two teams reported any problems with player injuries.
FK Zalgiris vs. KF Ballkani Prediction
Zalgiris managed to “get away” in the first match, and now they have “match ball”. The home team is very awkward in their stadium, and there are few matches where Zalgiris did not manage to score at least 2 goals in front of their fans.
We believe that they will start very violently from the very beginning of the match, and we are convinced that if they are concentrated enough, they can “finish the job” in the first half.
