Match preview

After causing an upset in the first leg, can Žalgiris Vilnius complete the shock across the Baltic Sea?

Eight nights ago, Fabien Ourega scored the only goal of the night at LFF Stadions as the Lithuanian champions claimed a victory.

But, back on home turf, Malmö will still be confident of getting through to the next round.

The Sky Blues are the only Nordic club to have ever reached a European Cup Final, losing 1-0 to Nottingham Forest 43 years ago.

Since 2011, they’ve qualified for three Champions League group stages, including last season, as well as three of the Europa League variety.

Thus, it would be a major setback if Miloš Milojević's men fell at this hurdle.

Žalgiris meanwhile known that, if they get through, they’ll be guaranteed group phase football for the first time ever.

To date, the Green-Whites best runs have been to the play-off round, beaten by RB Salzburg in 2013 and Bodø/Glimt last season.

Thus, if the Lithuanian champions leave Sweden with the required result, they’d make history.

The winners of this tie will take on Bodø/Glimt of Linfield in the Champions League third qualifying round.

The losers will drop down to the Europa League third qualifying round and face the losers of Dudelange vs Pyunik.
