Although after the last game against FC Sūduva in Marijampolė Žalgiris had two weeks break, but it didn‘t affect the game of green and whites. Liviu Antal continued his strong run and scored two goals, while Tomaš Malec added one more strike to his collection.
Goalkeeper Armantas Vitkauskas had a solid game as well. Before the game Žalgiris announced about the transfer of club‘s main goalkeeper Džiugas Bartkus, who was sold to Israel club Hapoel Ironi. So Vitkauskas had a chance to play official game for green and white's after almost 10 months break. He did not dissapoint and showed his best qualities while adding one more „dry“ game to Žalgiris account.
