Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
Stadion pod Cebratom will host Thursday’s Conference League qualifier between Ruzomberok and Kauno Zalgiris. Ruzomberok were anything but impressive in pre-season, but they are still seen as hot favourites to win the first leg. Kauno Zalgiris defenders should have Martin Regali at bay as the 28-year-old scored ten goals in the last domestic campaign.
The Lithuanians, on the other hand, are in the middle of the season, with the team occupying 6th place in the standings. Kauno Zalgiris conceded ten goals in the double-header with TNS of Wales in the 2021/2022 Conference League qualifiers, which is probably the main reason why we are going to put our money on the Slovaks this time out. It has to be noted that the two teams have never met before in a competitive match.
