A 3-1 victory against Pyunik have put Basel at the front foot in the Conference League. Now Alexander Frei and his men will travel to LFF stadionas this Thursday to clash with Zalgiris.

There is no doubt that Zalgiris are the best team in the A Lyga this season. As they are the league leaders.

It is important to understand that host have lost only once this season. In their last match in the Conference League they played against Slovan Bratislava. It ended in a stalemate.

In their last A Lyga Outing, they defeated Kauno Zalgiris by 2-0. Kipras Kazukolovas and Renan Oliveira were the goal-scorers in that game.

Meanwhile, Basel started their Conference League campaign on a good note. They defeated Pyunik 3-1 on matchday 1 for Group H. Wouter Burger scored a brace in that game.

In the Swiss league, the form is looking different. The team is currently at the seventh position in the league table.

Winning just nine points out of a possible twenty-one this season. It is worth knowing that they finished second last season. Hence they qualified for this year’s Conference League.
