Lithuania v Portugal Betting Tips – Euro 2020 Qualifying, 10th September 7.45pm

Portugal got their first win of the qualifying campaign on the board over the weekend, winning a six-goal thriller against Serbia. They still aren’t likely to get the top spot in this group though and appear to just be playing for second behind Ukraine. This should be an easy game for them against the bottom side Lithuania.

Lithuania News and Form – Can Lithuania beat Portugal?

From four games in this Euro 2020 qualification group, Lithuania have taken just one point. They won’t be going to the Finals next summer. Their poor form extends back way beyond this qualification campaign though. They have not won a game anywhere since a 1-0 victory over Armenia back in March 2018. Since that win, Lithuania are D3 L12 in their fifteen games played.

So punters are going to have a hard time trusting them to keep the reigning Nations League champions Portugal at arm’s length. Lithuania have taken a W1 D1 L4 record in their last six European Championship home qualifiers, failing to hit the back of the net in three of those. Their defence has been porous as well, shipping at least two goals in four of their last six home qualifiers. There has been no clean sheet from them in their last six games now.

Portugal News and Form – Will Portugal pick up three points in Lithuania?

Portugal got their Euro 2020 qualification campaign off to a slow start. They earned back-to-back draws against Ukraine and Serbia. But then in their second group meeting with Serbia on Saturday, Portugal banked a 4-2 win to get up and running. That leaves them eight points behind leaders Ukraine having played two games fewer than them. Serbia and Luxembourg are a point behind Portugal, both having played a game more than they have. Basically, Portugal are on course for a top-two finish.

It is a three-match winning streak that Portugal are on, following their win in the Nations League finals. It is an eleven match undefeated streak of form that they have recorded, winning six of those. They are just such a difficult side to get the better of and grind down enough to beat. Portugal doesn’t have a player who has scored more than one goal in this Euro 2020 qualification campaign. Portugal have won eight of their last ten (D2) European Championship qualifiers.

Portugal to win: It is hard to picture even the slightest hint of an upset happening in this game. It should be a routine win for the visitors, and it’s just about them getting the result and moving on, not putting on a big show. Portugal 2-0 correct score.
