Zalgiris Vilnius vs Malmo
Champions League Qualification
Date: Tuesday, 19 July 2022
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: LFF stadionas.

Lithuanian champions Zalgiris might be on a good stretch of performance lately, but it needs to be considered that they are not experienced that well in Europe. And particularly against stronger opponents like Malmo, they will struggle quite a lot.

Malmo lifted the Swiss title the last season and that too in style. They were engaged in a tough title-race till the very end of the season and managed to secure the first position despite having the same number of points as that of the second-placed team.

Their composure and their performances under pressure deserve special appreciation and they have built quite some confidence from this accomplishment as well. And they will be counting on that a lot, in this qualifying competition for the Champions League.

It also helps them that Zalgiris have a poor head-to=head record against them and they also have not taken on European rivals that often.

By the looks of things, it is expected that we are about to witness a victory for Malmo this Tuesday.
