National cups are something special for many teams and supporters. Today's match will decide whether it's Panevėžys or Trakai that keep their silverware dream alive.
Panevėžys form and statsPanevėžys participated in Lithuanian Cup the last season, where they reached the quarter-finals.
With 2 A Lyga wins, 2 draws and 5 defeats from their home games, Panevėžys are certainly not brimming with confidence.
Panevėžys drew their last game, also a home match. Sūduva was the opponent, 1-1 the score. Prior to that was the away defeat visiting Žalgiris (2-3).
Panevėžys has scored 9 league goals at home this season, in 9 matches. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only -1 of these goals has been scored in their last three home matches. Panevėžys have conceded 14 from these games. There's been improvement defensively lately, as only -1 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 home matches.
Trakai form and statsTrakai was sent out of Lithuanian Cup in the 16th finals last season.
The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Trakai so far with only 6 points returning home. The records show 1-3-5 (win-draw-lose).
Trakai go into this game after a win, the home game against Banga that ended 4-0. Preceding that game, the 1-7 loss visiting Sūduva's place.
As you can tell from the results above, Trakai was very dominant against Banga, winning the match with a scoreline that even the finest fortune teller couldn't predict. 4-0 (!) with G. Paulauskas, D. Barauskas, V. Borovskis and A. Lezama providing the goals.
Many goals are not expected from the visiting Trakai as they have only managed to score 7 times from 9 away games in the league. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only -1 of these goals has been scored in their last three away matches. Trakai have conceded 16 goals in these games. There's been improvement defensively lately, as only -1 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 away matches.
Head 2 HeadH2H stats regardless of arena (last eight matches): Panevėžys three wins, three draws and Trakai two victories. As for goals, four matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), four games had two or less.
