Bodo/Glimt and FK Zalgiris will continue their quest for a spot in the Champions League group stage on Wednesday.
In the second round of the competition, Bodo Glimt defeated Linfield 8-1 on aggregate to win their last Champions League qualifying match. This season, Glimt participated in two Champions League qualifying matches and won both. They have gone eight games without losing at home in all competitions and have lost only two of the previous eight games across all tournaments.
FK Zalgiris Vilnius
Lithuanian A Lyga winner Zalgiris Vilnius defied the odds and the predictions of the majority of onlookers by a 2-0 win over Malmo to secure their advancement. Since the beginning of the year, they have had a strong run of success, dropping just two of their past 26 games across all competitions. They have a good road record as well, staying unbeaten in their past 16 games.
Although Zalgiris now have a better track record of results, the hosts could benefit from having more European experience as they take a good first-leg advantage.
Pick: Bodo Glimt (-1.5) in AH
