Who will march on in their quest for Champions League football?

This tie remains firmly in the balance after an even first leg. Zalgiris will feel confident of getting the job done after going away from home in the first leg. Ballkani meanwhile will feel they can hold their own. Expect blood, sweat and tears along with, hopefully, a sprinkling of quality.
