Zalgiris Vilnius vs Budapest Honved
Date: Thursday, 18 July 2019
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: LFF stadionas (Vilnius).
Honved could have made claim to a perfect home leg, had they been a little more careful towards the end. After scoring three goals, and some good defending, they made a lapse of judgment in conceding a goal late into the injury time.
Now, with their terrifying home form, Vilnius does have a chance to make it to the next round.

Zalgiris Vilnius vs Budapest Honved Prediction
In the last 12-months period, Zalgiris has lost just once at home, and that was against Sevilla, in the Europa League. As such, they are on an 18-game unbeaten run, of which 15 are wins. In addition, they are also on an eight-fixture winning run and scored two or more goals in 13 of their last 16 home matches.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in three of their last four overall ties and lost their last two on the road. They also conceded two or more goals in these two clashes.
As such, expect the hosts to ride to a win. But, there are other factors at play.
Budapest leads 1-3 in aggregate and could concentrate in defense if they choose so. This will force the home team to abandon their posts, and attack more. At one point or another, this will lead to them conceding a goal.
