Our prediction for this Europa League match:
A spot in the Europa League final qualifying round will be at stake when Zalgiris and Hacken face each other in a highly-anticipated two-legged tie. Zalgiris failed to shock Galatasaray in the Champions League qualifiers, but their displays in the double-header with Dries Mertens and Co. were anything but poor. Keep in mind, though, that the Lithuanians are on a four-game winless run in all competitions ahead of the visit of Hacken.
The Yellow-Blacks, on the other hand, aim to recover from a heart-breaking Champions League elimination to Klaksvik of Faroe Islands. Hacken are more of a team than Zalgiris and seeing that the 2023 Allsvenskan campaign is in a full swing, away win should be considered. As for the visiting team, Ibrahim Sadiq is back from the domestic ban, while Simon Gustafson has yet to recover from a thigh injury.
