The New Saints vs Kauno Zalgiris: Predictions

Check out our match predictions for this Europa Conference League qualifier between The New Saints vs Kauno Zalgiris.

These odds from Betfred were correct at the time of writing. Check your betslip before confirming.

A huge win incoming

We kick off our predictions with a seemingly ambitious -3 handicap. It’s less ambitious when you consider that The New Saints hit five goals past Kauno Zalgiris in the first leg; they were away! On top of that, The New Saints have won seven of their last 10 home games drawing another two and losing just the solitary game. Kauno Zalgiris by contrast have been in generally poor form; they’ve won just one of their last five outings. This really should be a formality with the only question being how many goals The New Saints score.

An easy day for The New Saints keeper

Not only do we think The New Saints will win handsomely but we are tipping them to keep a clean sheet too; their visitors have only scored three goals in their last five matches and have blanked in two of the last three. As for The New Saints, they have kept seven clean sheets in the last 10 games, which includes the 5-0 win they recorded over Kauno Zalgiris in the first leg. When you consider all aspects it really is tough to see this bet not coming in.

Lots of goals

Finally, we have an over/under goals tip for you. We’re keeping things simple at 2.5 but a look to The New Saints stats should quickly show why this bet still carries big value. They’ve been involved in 14 goals over their past five games; that’s an average of 2.8 goals. Kauno Zalgiris average across the last five isn’t quite as compelling at 2.4 but a longer term view puts their average up to 2.6. Of course, the head to head record of one game played and five goals scored helps paint an over 2.5 punt in the right way too.

The New Saints vs Kauno Zalgiris: Another big win is likely

The New Saints

After winning the first leg 5-0 and knowing they welcome their opponents to their home ground where they have a record of one loss in 10 must be music to the ears of The New Saints team and fan base. There is no way their team won’t be going through. In fact, the aggregate score of this match could get embarrassing; Daniel Davies will be keen to add to his goal tally – he’s only been with the club two weeks but bagged a brace in the first leg.

Kauno Zalgiris

What does success in this game look like for Kauno Zalgiris? Is it a win? A draw? Just keeping the score respectable? Whatever the answer, they’ll need to defend a damn sight better than they did in the first leg and a run of one win in seven hardly inspires confidence of a positive outcome. Steven Thicot is their key defender whilst any attacking threat will likely come through Nigerian striker Philip Otele.
