Both teams will find the net

A review of recent fixtures for both teams reveals a lot of inconsistencies. Both teams have lost three times in the last ten games. And despite the hosts recording six clean sheet victories within that duration, this fixture creates a different atmosphere with both teams looking to qualify for Europa  Conference League 2021/22.

Goals galore between Europa FC and Kauno Zalgiris

We are expecting a high scoring match between Europa FC and Kauno Zalgiris. The visitors do not look better offensively and there is a good chance they will concede more goals against Europa FC. Moreover, based on recent stats, the hosts have been lethal in the final third and should score at least twice in this match.

The hosts to open the scoring

The hosts have six clean sheet wins in their last ten games, four of which had at least three goals. On the flipside, Kauno Zalgiris has kept three clean-sheet victories in their last ten games, all of which had a scoreline of 1-0. Based on these stats, we think the hosts have better attackers and should score the first goal in this match.

Game Preview: Europa FC hosts Kauno Zalgiris in the first leg of Europa Conference League Qualifiers

Gibraltar meets Lithuania when Europa FC hosts Kauno Zalgiris in the first leg of 2021/22 Europa Conference League Qualifiers. Our fixture preview sheds more light on this match.

Europa FC

Rafael Escobar Obrero is the hosting manager in this fixture. The 51-year-old Spanish tactician has been in charge of Europa FC since February 2019. After 64 matches on the dugout, Rafael Escobar Obrero has 49W, 6D, and 9L. Such an impressive record makes Rafael Escobar Obrero a likely winner in this fixture. Moreover, an average of 2.39 points per match makes Rafael Escobar Obrero a formidable force to reckon with. However, in an important fixture as this, everything boils down to whether the manager can keep a good record going and most importantly, fix defensive problems that have occasionally let his side down.

Kauno Zalgiris

Kauno Zalgiris hope to put behind a poor run of form in the last four matches, during which they have gone without a win. The Lithuanian team will bank on top players Linas Pilibaitis, Michael Thuique and Philipas Otele for a good start in the Europa Conference League qualifiers. Thirty-two-year-old and head coach, Rokas Garastas, may not have a lot of experience at this level, but an average of 1.88 per match after 40 games in charge means he has the competency to put up a good show on the road.
