Zalgiris

Zalgiris made it back to the second qualifying round of the Champions League: the last time they took part in that stage was in 2020/21, when they beat Hungarian Ferencvaros 5-1 on aggregate in two games. Now, the Whites and Greens have booked their place through a 1-1 and 1-0 win over Balkani from Kovoso. The home side need to improve their chances, as they put 22 shots on goal in their last game, scoring just once.

In the national championship, the team are in first place with 41 points from 18 rounds. The total number of goals scored is 40, conceded 12. Petar Mamic, team captain Saulius Mikoliunas and holding midfielder Marko Milikovic received yellow cards in the previous game, but will still be able to take to the pitch on Tuesday. Another caution for the aforementioned players could affect their participation in the return leg.

Malmö

Malmö are known as an experienced Eurocup fighter, but the Swedish club narrowly handled Vikingur Reykjavik to reach the second round. “The D’Blae defeated the Icelandic side 6-5 on aggregate and drew criticism from fans for their poor and disorganised defence. They are likely to rectify that deficiency in the run-up to the second round. The team boasts a couple of leading players, such as Serbian midfielder Veljko Biermanchevic and Danish star Anders Christiansen.

Attacking midfielder Adi Nalic has been sidelined with a torn cruciate ligament. It is unclear whether defenders Martin Olsson and Lasse Nielsen will be replaced due to the yellow cards they received in the previous game. There is speculation that they may remain in reserve to avoid further warnings that could rule them out for the return leg.

Face-offs

These teams have met each other twice, with both matches taking place in Champions League qualification. “Malmö won one of them 1-0, while the other ended in a goalless draw.

Outlook for Zalgiris v Malmö

Lately, Zalgiris have been doing well at home, winning three of their last four matches at the LFF stadium. However, the Whites and Greens also concede a lot of goals. The Lithuanians have to be very careful against the beautifully attacking Malmö. The visitors have won three victories in the last four meetings and they don’t intend to let up. It’s going to be a scintillating encounter, with the odds on both sides to score.
