Lithuania Prediction – Can Lithuania gain first win?

In actual fact, the question should not only be whether Lithuania can gain their first win of these Euro 2020 qualifiers, but if they can end a poor sequence of 6 matches without a win in Euro qualifiers as they’d previously drew with Slovenia and lost to England 3-0 at home in a previous campaign.

This time around, Lithuania have picked up just 1 point from their first 4 matches in Group B following 3 defeats and a draw which has seen the hosts suffer defeats to Luxembourg, Serbia and Ukraine, while their single point was earned in a 1-1 draw at home with surprise package, Luxembourg.

With just 2 wins out of their last 11 Euro qualifiers on home turf though, the odds of Lithuania springing a surprise against the current European champions looks a distinct impossibility, especially as they’ve found themselves on the wrong end of previous heavy defeats to their visitors in 4-1 and 5-1 thrashings respectively.

Lithuania currently possess an ordinary looking home record of 0-1-1 1/4.

Portugal Prediction – Can Portugal secure 2nd place?

With Ukraine coming out of the blocks in explosive fashion in these Euro 2020 qualifiers and holding top spot in Group B by a margin of 8 points over 2nd placed Portugal, it looks like the current European champions will have to make do with the runners-up spot in this 5-nation group.

Portugal certainly enhanced their chances of nailing down the second qualifying spot in Group B over the weekend when they returned to Euro qualifier action with a crucial 4-2 win away from home at 4th placed Serbia.

The visitors have 2 games in hand over group leaders, Ukraine, and they’ll certainly be looking to make the most of this upcoming clash at bottom nation, Lithuania, as they seek another valuable 3 points which would move them closer to qualification.

The win at Serbia made it 10 Euro qualifiers without defeat for Fernando Santos’s side and having won their last 5 Euro qualifiers on the trot away from home, Portugal look well set to claim another 3 points here this evening.


Key-Facts – Lithuania v Portugal

  • Lithuania are without a Euro qualifier win from their last 6 matches overall
  • Portugal have won their last 5 Euro qualifiers on the trot away from home
  • Portugal have won the previous 2 meetings against Lithuania, 4-1 & 5-1


Betting Tips Verdict

Despite holding home advantage, Lithuania will have their work cut out to contain tonight’s visitors, Portugal.
