Kauno Zalgiris to Win

Both Kauno Zalgiris and The New Saints have little in the way of European pedigree, though the Lithuanian’s superior match fitness and sharpness could give them the edge they need to establish a first-leg lead this week. Rokas Garastas’s troops are in the midst of their domestic campaign while The New Saints have played just two competitive fixtures since May. We’re backing the hosts to prevail with that in mind.

Under 2.5 Goals

Action could be thin on the ground when two goal-shy teams face off the Hikvision arena on Tuesday. Kauno Zalgiris only managed to notch twice in their previous qualification round tussle with Gibraltar side Europa, while each of TNS’s skirmishes with Glentoran in the same phase produced under 2.5 goals. Both teams lack match-winners in their ranks and another low-scoring affair is anticipated as a result.

Both Teams to Score – No

Kauno Zalgiris kept two clean sheets against Europa in the previous round, while The New Saints conceded just once in 180 minutes of action against Glentoran. With both clubs likely to approach Tuesday’s first-leg with a heavy focus on defending, the chances of a clean sheet being kept by one of the combatants is high.

Kauno Zalgiris vs The New Saints: Match Preview

Kauno Zalgiris

A Lyga club Kauno Zalgiris are competing on the continent for the third campaign on the spin and their progression to the second qualifying round of the Europa Conference League already trumps their first two stabs at success in Europe. In Nigerian Philip Otele and Brazilian Michael, Zalgiris have two exciting forwards that could cause problems this week.

The New Saints

The New Saints are used disappointment in Europe and the club has a lengthy history of continental heartache. The Welsh outfit have only won four games in non-domestic competitions since 2002 despite competing in them virtually every year. New manager Anthony Limbrick – appointed in April – will hope to mastermind an improved performance in 2021 however.
