FK Suduva is one of the smallest club in this season’s Europa League qualifiers. They did make a mark for themselves with their attacking display. They Lithuanians have one foot in the play-off round after humbling FC Sion by a 3-0 margin in the first leg.
Interestingly, this is the first time that Suduva are reaching the third round of the Europa League qualifiers in 11 attempts.
In the current campaign, Suduva won 3, drew 1 and lost 1 from their 5 qualifying fixtures. Also, they are unbeaten away from home with a win and a draw and are yet to concede a goal.
FC Sion last appeared at the group stage of Europa League in 2015/16. They progressed from a group involved Liverpool and Bordeaux during that period before bowing out to Sporting Braga in the round of 32. However, this remains to be their only stint at the tournament and never had successfully negotiated the qualifiers.
Sion vs Suduva: Head-to-head

Sion vs Suduva: Prediction
It is important to note that Sion are playing this home fixture in a different venue.
There is little to be optimistic if you are a Sion fan. The team lost the three previous double legged fixture when trailing in the first leg. The situation is made worse with two first team defenders Eray Cumart and Federico Dimarco out of the playing eleven with injuries.
These are fresh waters for Suduva. But expect them to be on the top of the game to see of the tie without much trouble.
