Although both sides featured in our FC Stumbras vs FK Kauno Zalgiris preview currently occupy the bottom two places of the Lithuanian A Lyga table, it would be a mistake to place them on an equal footing. While Stumbras still are still well in the hunt for Championship Round contention, Kauno are cut well adrift at the foot of the table with relegation already looking a certainty.
Ahead of our FC Stumbras vs FK Kauno Zalgiris betting tips and match prediction, Mariano Barreto’s Stumbras side are enjoying something of a purple patch. The home side haven’t lost in six, keeping an impressive four clean sheets along the way. A fixture against the A Lyga’s worst side represents a fantastic chance to build on that positive momentum.
Heading into our FC Stumbras vs FK Kauno Zalgiris predictions, the away side have lost eleven of their opening fifteen league games so far. In a slight upturn in results, Kauno have picked up four points from their last two fixtures, though it feels more a flash in the pan than a resurgence in form.
It may pain FK Kauno Zalgiris fans to hear, but it would be foolish not to bet against them in any of their A Lyga fixtures this season. Our FC Stumbras vs FK Kauno Zalgiris picks acknowledge the fact that the away side produced one of the performances of the season to beat the league leaders VMFD Zalgiris Vilnius just a couple of weeks ago, but in a derby game form usually goes out the window.
Even though these teams sit side by side in the table, I’m backing FC Stumbras to take the points relatively easily on Tuesday.
