Palanga vs FK Panevezys (By: PlayMaker)
Palanga host FK Panevėžys in this round of Lithuania A League.
More than half of the season has passed, it seems that the familiar scenario of the previous season is repeating in the national championship Lithuania, A Liga 2019. Holding the leading position is the defending champion Sūduva Marijampolė with 42 points earned after 17 rounds. On the opposite side, after escaping relegation last season, Palanga continued to be caught up in the relegation race. However, the difference between the teams is not too much and the season is still long, everything can be changed after only 1 round. In this round, the bottom team Palanga will welcome the newly promoted FK Panevėžys team at home. If win, Palanga will level up 3 points with the visitors.
Ending last year's Liga at the 7th on the rankings table, Palanga could only avoid relegation after beating Daivana Alytus with a 5-0 aggregate score in two playoffs. Thinking it would be a moral boost for the team at Centrinis Miesto Stadionas to show a brighter face this season. But with only 7 points earned after 2 wins, 1 draw and 12 losses, the bottom position is what Palanga is suffering. The team's defense is really a disaster with achievements to concede to 43 goals, more than every other teams. That makes Palanga only win 1 game in the last 6 matches in A Liga (the remaining 5 losses).
FK Panevėžys was the only team to play in the A Liga this season, making great efforts at Lithuania's highest level playing field. Over 16 matches, Panevėžys won 2 victories, 4 draws and 9 losses. With 10 points earned, Panevėžys ranked 6/8, more than 3 points from Palanga. This can be said to be an acceptable achievement for a rookie. And just without losing in the next match, Panevėžys will keep a safe distance from the bottom of the table. The recent performance of coach Alexandru Curteianu is quite good. They won 4, losing 2 of the last 6 matches in all competitions. The last time they met Palanga this season, Panevėžys won the match 2-1. If played properly, believe that at least Panevėžys will win this important game.
