Lithuania vs Portugal Match Preview
Portugal registered an important Euro 2020 qualifying victory in Serbia at the weekend and will expect to follow up when they visit Lithuania.
The European champions are playing catch-up to the Ukraine in Group B because they have two games in hand due to hosting, and winning, the inaugural UEFA Nations League finals in June – but they trail the leaders by eight points.
A second-place finish would be enough for Portugal though, and they improved their prospects of securing at least that position by triumphing 4-2 in Belgrade with Cristiano Ronaldo among four different players to get on the scoresheet.
That was a first success in three attempts in this group for Fernando Santos’ side, who had previously been held to low-scoring draws at home by the Ukraine and Serbia.
It would be a huge shock if they failed to claim another three points in Lithuania, who are on a dreadful run of form having lost 11 of their last 13 matches and they were beaten 3-0 at home by the Ukraine on Saturday.
It will be a treat for the Lithuanians having Ronaldo arrive in their country, but their fear must be that the global football superstar puts their national team to the sword because this should result in a straightforward victory for one of the continent’s most effective sides.
