Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
A spot in the Conference League second qualifying round will be at stake when Kauno Zalgiris and Ruzomberok face each other at Hikvision Arena on Thursday. Ruzomberok were a much better side in the first leg, with the team recording a routine 2-0 win over Kauno Zalgiris, and they are now on a quest to defend their two-goal lead. Head coach Peter Struhar has no fresh injury worries, and he is unlikely to make changes to the team that won the first leg.
The Lithuanians, on the other hand, will have a mountain to climb in the second leg, and seeing that the game will be played on neutral location, we are tempted to put our money on the Slovaks. Both Anisas and Sangare are pushing for a start as boss Rokas Garastas should opt to make changes to the team that faced Ruzomberok a week ago.
