Our Prediction:

Serbia will win

Lithuania – Serbia Match Prediction | 14-10-2019 14:45

Lithuania, on the other hand, come into the match amid a rather poor spell of form where they earned just one draw in four outings, holding Latvia off and beaten by Estonia, Iran, and Poland along the way. Theyve struggled to keep up with the big guns and Serbians will surely hope to show off as a dominant outfit on the day.

The Fulham striker has scored a ton of goals for both club and country, and a goal here, especially an early one, would go a long way toward calming down the home support. The Ajax man comes off the back of a great club season and can contribute with goals and assists to help them pick up results. In midfield, Dusan Tadic will be a key man. Aleksandr Mitrovic didnt start on Friday night in what turned out to be a disaster for Serbia, and they will hope that their target man will help them get back on track here.

In midfield, Arvydas Novikovas is the one to watch. He scored the goal that came them a good point against Luxembourg, adding to his tally that now sits at six. Going forward, Lithuanias biggest goal threat is captain Fedor Cernych. The striker has scored just under one goal in every five matches through 51 international games, showing he is capable but not altogether consistent enough to always trouble.

Eagles now open their UEFA Nations League campaign in League C Group 4 with a trip to Lithuania on Friday evening and hope to bounce back quickly, showing off as a tough side on the road once again.

Interestingly, Lithuania took on Serbia in the Nations League and it didnt go well for Mondays visitors, as they lost by four goals to one when playing on the road. That said, their efforts probably merited slightly more than a rather unjust 4-1 defeat. After all, they posted 1.1 expected goals for, which is only 0.8 less than they conceded, while Serbia only managed one more shot on target than the Lithuanians.

Lithuania also join them on one point as well, so if they hope to progress they, too, will need an unlikely result. Ahead of this match, Serbia find themselves in a massive spot of bother here. They are bottom of the group having played three times and have only one point to show for it. Failing to win here would be major bad news and would end their hopes of realistically qualifying via the normal route.

SRB vs LTU Betting Tips and Odds

Lithuania managed to beat Scotland in the qualifiers for the 2004 European Championship, but they eventually failed to book their place at the showpiece tournament in Portugal. The former Soviet republic have yet to book their place at the finals of a major tournament, but they were competitive in the UEFA Euro 2004 qualifiers as they managed to play out a draw with Germany on the road. Marius Stankevicius is considered Lithuanias most notable footballer as he played for the likes of Lazio, Hannover, Sampdoria, Sevilla and Valencia in the past.

In three travelling matches in that competition, Lithuania conceded nine goals, scored just one, conceded an average of 2.05 expected goals and posted an average of only 0.65 for. If we also look at how Lithuania fared on the road during the soon to be concluded UEFA Nations League, then its easy to fear for them ahead of this match. In contrast, Serbia averaged 1.99 expected goals for and conceded an average of 1.03 at home in the Nations League.
