Žalgiris Vilnius vs Struga odds and betting statistics



Žalgiris Vilnius vs Struga match preview

2023 has already been a dream year for Struga, so can they now make a splash in the Champions League?

Earlier this year, a club, who were only founded eight years ago, won their very first North Macedonian title, finishing ten points clear at the top, just four years after gaining promotion.

So, this’ll be only Struga’s second-ever tie in UEFA competition, having been hammered by Liepāja in the Europa Conference League two years ago.

Shpëtim Duro’s side are faced with a tough draw, but this tie will not faze them.

Žalgiris Vilnius have vastly more expirence at this level, having wrapped up a third consecutive Lithuanian title last year.

Earlier in 2022, the Green-Whites became the first A Lyga club to qualify for a UEFA group stage, beating Ballkani and Malmö, the latter a huge upset, en route to the Europa Conference League.

The prize on offer for the winners is a Champions League second qualifying round meeting with Turkish juggernauts Galatasaray.

The losers drop into the Europa Conference League second qualifying round, where they’ll take on Budućnost Podgorica.
