Venue: LFF stadionas.
It is interesting to note that the top two teams of Group H have almost identical forms. Pyunik lost the opening game and now they are the favourites to top the group following their recent victory. A crucial game awaits Zalgiris who will face Pyunik at LFF stadionas.
The team led by Yegishe Melikyan have an advantage as they won the first leg by 2-0. They started their Conference League campaign by losing to Basel by 3-1. Now they are on a two-game winning streak.
Manager Yegishe Melikyan made an important change by playing a different formation in the 2-0 win in the first leg.
The host are at the bottom of Group H. Their form is looking very dull as they have lost twice. It is important to note that they have not even scored a single goal since Matchday One. This is one of the reasons they are stuck in the 4th place.
The priority for Vladimir Cheburin and his men is to focus on the remaining Matchdays. Also he will have to start playing an attacking game, if they wish to end their goal drought.
We can expect the second leg to have more goals, as the home team most recently scored four goals in thier domestic competition.
