Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Galatasaray vs Zalgiris


Galatasaray failed to achieve success in the first match of the Champions League qualification quarter-finals, the team on the road lost a draw with Zalgiris 2:2. Wards Okan Buruk in terms of play looked much more convincing on the field, the team possessed the ball 66% of the playing time and regularly ran away to attack. As a result, in the 78th minute, the Lions even led 2 :1. Already in the very end, the Turks allowed themselves to relax too early, thus giving the Green-Whites a chance to win back. Bardakci and Dervisoglu scored goals for the Red-Yellows.

I note that the Turks at home do not lose in the last 5 meetings.


Zalgiris has been undefeated for 12 matches in a row at all levels. The guys of Vladimir Cheburin showed themselves well in the Champions League qualification, having drawn with Galatasaray 2:2 at home. The "Green-Whites" could not impose their conditions on the Turks, so the team was forced to fight off the opponent's attacks. At the same time, the Lithuanians skillfully disposed of their moments, which allows them to keep the chances of overcoming the round. Goals for Zalgiris were scored by Oievusi and Kazlauskas.

Lithuanians are approaching the exit with an unbeaten streak of 12 matches.

Game Totals Prediction

Galatasaray failed the trip, the team spent a lot of money to strengthen the squad, and could not win in Lithuania. Zalgiris has already shown his best side throughout football Europe, but still the level of the team does not reach the level of the Turks. In Istanbul, the hosts are certainly the favorites, but I don’t expect a super defeat from them, the Lithuanian club showed that they also know how to play football and punish mistakes. I think a plus handicap for the guests is a playing bet: Zalgiris will not lose more than 2 goals - handicap 2 (+2.5) - 1.70.
