Galatasaray vs Zalgiris: Top Free Betting Tips

Galatasaray and Zalgiris line up against each other for the second leg of Champions League Qualifiers on Wednesday, 2 August. The fixture promises to be an interesting one as they get into the second leg after featuring an equal score in the previous match.

Match Result & Total Goals Prediction: Galatasaray & Over 2.5 Goals

Before the drawn game against Zalgiris, Galatasaray had consecutive six victories in competitive matches. On the other hand, Zalgiris has registered only two victories in the same number of games, losing one. Super Liga Champions have also won the previous three competitive matches at Rams Park in a row. Moreover, Galatasaray was able to clip the Green-Whites to equal score in the first leg, conceding an equaliser in stoppage time. The last four matches involving Zalgiris, irrespective of the competition, have seen at least three goals and we believe it will be the case again. So given the home advantage this time, we predict a win for the Turkish side with Over 2.5 total goals.

Both Teams to Score Prediction: Yes

As the team displayed a BTTS outcome in their last H2H meeting with a scoreline of 2-2, we can expect the same result in the second leg. Galatasaray has not failed to score in any of the competitive games in 2023. On the other hand, Zalgiris has found the back of the net in four consecutive matches ahead of this game. The Green-Whites have also conceded goals in three games during the same course. Hence, a BTTS outcome will be our next pick for this encounter.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Galatasaray

Galatasaray’s attacking line has been impressive as they have scored twice or more in each of the last six competitive games. Zalgiris has also managed to score more than once in three of the last five fixtures. However, Galatasaray’s defence has been favourable, conceding only three goals in the previous six games in UCL Qualifiers and Super Lig. Meanwhile, the Green-Whites allowed two goals at the back in each of the recent two games. Therefore, we predict a 2-1 lead for Galatasaray in this game.

Galatasaray vs Zalgiris: Form, Recent Games, and News

Galatasaray Preview

Following a 1-0 trail at first. Galatasaray found a lead against Zalgiris through Abdulkerim Berdakci and Halil Dervisoglu after seventy minutes. However, Donatas Kazlauskas avoided the Turkish side from a victory by equalising the score in stoppage time. The team’s preparation is less than ideal for the upcoming challenge with two players on the injury list.

Zalgiris Preview

The Green-Whites couldn’t extend their winning sequence in A Lyga against league leaders Panevezys and suffered a 1-2 defeat. Jeffrey Sarpong provided Panevezys with the lead in just the first minute and Ariagner Smith scored the winning goal in the 68th minute. There is no fitness issue for Zalgiris but Donatas Kazlauskas will miss out on the second leg due to red-card suspension.
