The clash between the top two teams – FC Žalgiris and Sūduva – in the 13th round of A league was goalless, however Vilnius side is still six points ahead and haven't lost in eleven matches in a row.


It was the first time this season, when Lithuanian champions played on the natural ground and it wasn't easy. Hosts twice hit the woodwork after shots from Marius Činikas and Radanfah Abu Bakr and once Mantas Kuklys kicked the ball off the line. Žalgiris had more decent ball possession, but Sūduva defence this time was on top.

Žalgiris head coach Valdas Dambrauskas reached a 100-game mark in Marijampolė and was congratulated before the match.
