Prediction, preview, team news, and more for Zalgiris against Ferencvaros | Qualifiers for the 2021-22 UEFA Champions League

|

Lithuanian champions Zalgiris will welcome Hungarian giants Ferencvaros to the LFF stadionas on Tuesday for the second leg of their UEFA Champions League qualifier.

The visitors hold the advantage in the tie, having picked up a 2-0 victory in the first leg on home soil. Myrto Uzuni and Tokmac Nguen scored first-half goals to give their side the advantage last week.

That victory put Ferencvaros in the driving seat and they only need to avoid defeat by a two-goal margin on Tuesday to progress to the next round.

They will be looking to get another win to boost momentum heading into their domestic title defense that kicks off next week.

The winner of this tie will take on Scottish champions Rangers in the third qualifying round.
