Lithuania vs Ukraine Match Preview
Andriy Shevchenko has turned the Ukraine into a quietly improving team and they will aim to stay in command of Euro 2020 qualifying Group B by winning away to Lithuania.
Ukraine have never really looked like challenging for glory at a major tournament – although they did reach the 2006 World Cup quarter-finals – but could be interesting outsiders next summer given the way they are developing.
Winners of their UEFA Nations League group, and thus promoted to the top tier, Shevchenko’s side have taken 10 points from a possible 12 so far in this qualifying campaign to race clear of Serbia and Portugal in their table – although both of those teams, like the Ukraine, have the play-offs to fall back on if they finish outside the all-important top two.
Lithuania sit bottom of the pile and on a dreadful run of form (see stats above) which means they and Luxembourg, who have already beaten them, are the teams the other trio will expect to beat both at home and away.
However, there is an easy warning that Shevchenko can issue to his players here which is that the Ukraine have lost two of their four competitive matches against Lithuania and so this is not a fixture that can be taken for granted.
Having only beaten Luxembourg by a one-goal margin in both of their meetings during this campaign, Ukraine sometimes make hard work of it against the minnows and it may be best not to expect anything too emphatic this time either.
