Switzerland will be hoping to take a giant leap towards the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar with victory over Lithuania on Tuesday night. Murat Yakin’s men are currently three points behind leaders Italy and six points above Northern Ireland and Bulgaria in Group C. They have eyes on first place but securing second will be Switzerland’s first priority. The Red Crosses are the overwhelming favourites to get all three points at the LFF Stadium in Vilnius in midweek. Check out our betting preview.

Lithuania Preview – Can the Lithuanians cause an upset?

Lithuania are the only nation in Group C who cannot finish in the top two. They have been eliminated after five defeats from six qualifiers. Along the way, Lithuania have scored four and shipped 14.

The Lithuanians lost their opening five qualifiers, suffering heavy defeats to Northern Ireland and Italy along the way. However, they restored some pride with an impressive home win over Bulgaria last weekend, with two late goals from Fedor Cernych earning his national side a somewhat surprise 3-1 victory.

Our betting prediction:
Switzerland to win both halves

(odds taken 1814 GMT, Monday 11 October)

Lithuania have been the weak link in the group, but last Saturday’s win will have certainly lifted the spirits. Can they follow that up with a shock success over the Swiss on Tuesday?

Switzerland Preview – Swiss to move on to 14 points?

When the draw was announced, most people fancied first place to be a two-horse race between Italy and Switzerland. A Swiss victory on Tuesday will put them level with Italy with two games to play. The pair then meet in Rome in the penultimate game next month.

Switzerland opened up daylight between themselves and Northern Ireland with a hard-fought 2-0 victory in Geneva on Saturday. That was a vital result for the Red Crosses after drawing the previous two. Overall, the Swiss have picked up three wins and drawn two of five Group C fixtures.

Switzerland will be eyeing up maximum points in Vilnius, which should be enough for second spot at the very least. Murat Yakin’s boys can then turn their attention to next month’s blockbuster encounter in Rome.

Switzerland laboured to a 1-0 home victory when these two nations met in St. Gallen in March. Xherdan Shaqiri’s effort in the second minute was enough for a 1-0 home victory.

This will be the fourth meeting between the pair, with the Swiss winning the previous three. They squared off in UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying, with Switzerland winning 4-0 at home and 2-1 on the road.


Key Facts – Lithuania vs Switzerland Betting Tip

  • Switzerland are unbeaten in five in Group C, winning three and drawing two
  • Three points for the Swiss on Tuesday will put them level at the top with Italy

Switzerland did a professional job against Northern Ireland last time out, and they will be after a similar kind of performance on Tuesday. The Red Crosses should get the job done in Vilnius, and the away team to win -1 is nicely priced at 8/13.

Switzerland have conceded just one goal in Group C, keeping four clean sheets along the way. You can get 4/5 Yakin’s team to win to nil at the LFF Stadium in midweek.
