Žalgiris Vilnius vs Galatasaray match preview

Not so long ago, the Turkish champions enjoyed the luxury of going straight into the Champions League group stages.

Now, due to a massive downturn in the league’s coefficient, Galatasaray must come through three qualifiers to get there.

Gala have previously featured in the Champions League group phase on 16 occasions, last achieving this in 2019, not featuring in any UEFA competition last season following a 12th place finish.

Having led the İstanbul giants to last season’s Süper Lig title, Okan Buruk’s team are now aiming to take Galatasaray back into big-time European football.

Given who they’re up against, Žalgiris Vilnius come into this two-legged affair as massive underdogs.

In the previous round, they overcame Struga, only managing a goalless draw at home before coming from behind to win 2-1 in Ohrid last Tuesday; Yury Kendysh on the scoresheet.

Last season, the Greens became the first Lithuanian team to feature in a UEFA group stage, this coming in the Europa Conference League.

So, Žalgiris are a capable outfit, but Galatasaray are likely to leave LFF stadionas victorious.

The winners of this tie will take on Olimpija Ljubljana or Ludogorets Razgrad in the UEFA Champions League third qualifying round.

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