VPS vs. Žalgiris Vilnius: Key Statistics and Trends

  • VPS has failed to win in their last five matches
  • Žalgiris Vilnius has lost two matches in a row, although they had excellent statistics before that

VPS – the shape of the team and its analysis:

"Vepsu" finished third in the national Veikkausliiga last season. More importantly, they won the additional playoff, securing a spot in the Europa Conference League. The team has maintained last year's level domestically, although they are experiencing a clear summer slump with a winless streak. Even the newcomer, Ekenäs, defeated them 3-2 away.

The Finns are returning to European competitions for the first time since 2017. That year, they advanced past the first opponent for only the second time in five attempts, overcoming Olimpija Ljubljana, before being narrowly defeated by Brøndby 2-1 and 0-2.

Žalgiris Vilnius – the shape of the team and its analysis:

"The Green and Whites" are often overshadowed by their basketball counterparts. However, they have been a prominent face of Lithuanian club football since Soviet times. After Lithuania regained independence, their dominance quickly waned, and they have not been able to secure all the trophies. In 2023, after three consecutive championship titles, they finished second. Nonetheless, they are currently leading the league confidently.

The capital team has extensive experience in European competitions, though with modest results. In 2022, they reached the group stage of the Conference League, finishing fourth. Last summer, after starting successfully against Struga, they subsequently lost to Galatasaray, Häcken, and Ferencváros.
