Lithuania vs Luxembourg, Friday’s match for the qualifying round, Group B, for the EURO 2020 Qualifiers, in the LFF Stadium.
Lithuania is going through a dark phase, as this national team comes from seven defeats and a draw. This lineup performed very weakly in the UEFA Nations League and continues with very poor displays in the Euro 2020 qualifiers.
Lithuania, from the former Soviet Republic, suffered a surprising 2-1 defeat to Luxembourg in March of this year, and is thirsty for revenge. Lithuanians often make better games at home than on trips.
This double Euroday qualifier for the Euro is a good opportunity for Lithuania to avoid a year without winning. The most recent success came in July when he defeated Sri Lanka’s fragile team.
Lithuania do not count for this match with Ernestas Šetkus, Egidijus Vaitknas, Valdemar Borovskij, Mantas Kuklys and Artras Žulpa.
Luxembourg has been thriving year after year and have already defeated Lithuania this year, so they will certainly play this game with all their might, but Luxembourg is not considered a good visitor.
Luxembourg in addition to Lithuania, will face Ukraine on June 10, and these two games will be able to dictate more clearly what will happen in this group.
The Luxembourg team comes from a friendly game against Madagascar, playing with a mixed team, an eleven with some players with experience and some youth.
Florian Bohnert will be out of this game, but the trio of Clayton Duarte, Seid Korac and Tim Kips have the opportunity to impress coach Luc Holtz.
Luxembourg has shown some evolution, and even some technical superiority over Lithuania, but it has some defensive weaknesses. I think the home factor can determine the outcome of this match.
