Galatasaray vs Žalgiris Vilnius match preview

Following a very entertaining first leg in Vilnius, it’s winner takes all in İstanbul.

Mathias Oyewusi gave Žalgiris a shock lead at LFF stadionas eight nights ago, only for quick-fire goals from Abdülkerim Bardakcı and Halil Dervişoğlu to, seemingly, lead Galatasaray to victory.

Nevertheless, Donatas Kazlauskas’s equaliser, coming in the 92nd minute, ensured it finished all square in Lithuania.

Back at home, Galatasaray are overwhelming favourites to get through this tie now.

Okan Buruk led Gala to their 23th Süper Lig title last season, now aiming to take them back into the Champions League for the first time in four seasons.

Žalgiris became the first Lithuanian club to feature in a UEFA group stage last season, this coming in the Europa Conference League, but an away win at Ali Sami Yen Spor Kompleksi seems extremely unlikely.

The losers drop into the UEFA Europa League third qualifying round, where they’ll face the losers of BK Häcken vs Klaksvíkar Ítróttarfelag.
