Lithuania vs Portugal for the UEFA Euro 2020 qualifiers match on Tuesday at LFF Stadium.
The Lithuanian team, which will play their third match in front of their fans in this qualifying group stage for the next UEFA European Championship in 2020.
They come to this matchday 5 of their group B with a performance that attests to what has been Lithuania’s latest performance and also the team’s individual and collective quality, which ranks 5th and last in the group table, with just 1 point added, due to the home draw against the also fragile Luxembourg national team.
The team is thus extending their bad momentum for a long time, with no wins for more than 14 months, and then beat Sri Lanka’s fragile side 2-0.
Already the visiting team comes into this match of round 6 of the qualifying round for the 2020 UEFA European Championship, following a recent blunt victory against the Serbian national team on Saturday 4-2, eventually reversing what was a bad start to the campaign for the Lusitanians, who tied their first two matches, now adding 5 points after three games.
Thus, Fernando Santos’s team are still relatively well underway to seal qualifying if they win this match in Lithuania, adding up to 8 points, 4 more than third-placed Luxembourg.
Given that the home team is the most fragile of this group B, besides that Portugal is clearly the strongest, although it is only placed in 2nd position.
I can only see here a clear triumph for the visiting team and for plump numbers, in a game with excellent strategic dynamics by Portugal, with a very technical and offensive driven football.
