In the European Championship qualification group B, the events are currently dominated by the Ukrainians. With 16 points on the account, Ukrainians are theoretically guaranteed the ticket to the European Championship in 2020, especially as a 5-0 home victory in the first half of the season was recorded in direct comparison with Serbia. It would therefore be unlikely that Serbia will wrest the Ukrainians the ticket for the European Championship.

Soccer Betting Tips Lithuania vs Serbia

Within reach, however, are the Portuguese. Four points separate the Serbian “Orlovi” from group-wide Portugal. Since Serbia are also behind in the direct comparison with Portugal, the European Championship finals will be reached only with contactor assistance. But this scenario is not really likely.

Nevertheless, in order to even save the chance mathematically and to believe in football wonders, a victory of Serbia against Lithuania is the conclusion of this international break obligation. The bookmakers see in Lithuania against Serbia anyway the “Orlovi” by odds as favorites. At the bottom of the group a point loss of the Serbian selection would be a big surprise.

Lithuania – Statistics & Current Form

Lithuania will say goodbye to the European Championship qualifier. In recent years, no real performance increase can be seen, which is why the retirement as a last-bird is not surprising. So far, Lithuania has conceded at least one defeat against each group opponent. A point win was only in the home game against Luxembourg.

Lithuania has been waiting for an international success for 13 international matches. In July 2018, there was the last Lithuanian victory with the 2: 0 over Sri Lanka. Eleven of the last 13 international matches have lost the Lithuanian selection.

Most recently, there was a 0-2 defeat at the Ukrainians. Overall, Lithuania conceded 17 goals in this group stage and is thus among the worst teams in the entire European Championship qualification.

In the last two home games conceded the Lithuanians eight goals. After the 0-3 defeat against Ukraine followed a 1-5 defeat against Portugal. Lithuania has not won a home game since October 2016. In the three years there were only point wins at home against Latvia (1: 1) and Luxembourg (1: 1).

The cadre squad of Lithuania is manageable. Internationally known stars are not present in the Lithuanian national team. Of the eleven legionaries in the squad only Arvydas Novikovas plays a major role. The midfielder from Legia Warsaw has scored seven goals in 56 international appearances and is the most dangerous man in the Lithuanian squad.

In Vilnius Lithuania coach Valdas Urbonas will not change his system. It is expected a similar starting eleven as against Ukraine.

Estimated formation of Lithuania:
➦ Cerniauskas – Andriuskevicius, Klimavicius, Girdvainis, Mikoliunas – Zulpa – Golubickas, Vorobjovas, Verbickas, Novikovas – Laukzemis

Serbia – Statistics & Current Form

The “Orlovi” has great potential in the squad, but is likely to miss the EM 2020. Too weak were the appearances in the previous group phase to keep up with teams like Ukraine and Portugal. But in order to keep the chance of progress, Serbia will have to win the match against Lithuania and hope for a helping hand.

There is room for improvement in the Serbian selection, above all on the defensive. With twelve goals conceded in five group matches, the performance of the Serbian defense was anything but promising. Five of the twelve goals conceded the Serbs in the away game against Ukraine. Thus, the “Orlovi” in the direct comparison with Ukraine is clearly behind and will draw in the event of a possible equality points the short straw.

In this international break coach Ljubisa Tumbakovic some top performers are not available. Besides Jovic, Fejsa, Lazovic and Matic, all of whom were not nominated, Tadic, Milinkovic-Savic and Maksimovic are injured. The current squad of Serbs can still be seen.

Before the recent away win against Luxembourg, the Serbian national team stayed away without winning four times in a row. In the 3-1 success in Luxembourg, the “Orlovi” could end the negative trend on foreign territory.

Anything but an away win would probably be a big surprise in Vilnius, which is why our Lithuania is also targeting the Orlovi against Serbia. In the end, it remains to be seen just how high the away win of the Serbian selection fails.

Expected formation of Serbia:
➦ Rajkovic – Mladenovic, Kolarov, Mitrovic, Miletic – Milivojevic, Lukic – Gacinovic, Ljajic, Kostic – Mitrovic
