Ireland vs Lithuania
International – Friendlies
Date: Tuesday, 29 March 2022
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Aviva Stadium.

The Irish are ranked almost a 100 spots above their counterparts for the day in the FIFA list. They are on a long unbeaten run, and have built up quite some momentum. Also, inspired by their neighbors, they are trying to slowly get included in the top-most tier of world football.

They did fail to qualify for the World Cup. But they came really close. They were assigned a tough group, that included the likes of Serbia and Portugal. At the end, the Irish finished third in the group, but took away valuable points from the Portuguese in a crucial fixture.

Meanwhile, the Lithuanians are one of the worst teams in the world, as evident by their 137th rank in the FIFA list. They are also on a long stretch of unimpressive results, and are letting in goals in huge numbers.

Going on, they are on the road, and have been a mess in such fixtures for quite some time now. They also had an embarrassing World Cup Qualification campaign, where they finished dead last. Moreover, they had a 100% losing record, barring a single match-up.

Moreover, they have a poor h2h record against this opponent, and judging all these observations, expect a win for Ireland this Tuesday at the Aviva.

Ireland vs Lithuania Prediction & Analysis

Ireland had won three of their last four overall fixtures, and they had remained unbeaten in nine of their past ten games. Note that they had scored three or more goals in three of their past four matches.

Do also take into account the fact that they have lost just twice at home in the past four-year period.

On the other hand, Lithuania had lost 11 of their previous 13 overall games, and they are on a seven-match losing streak away from home.

Considering these observations, expect a compelling win for Ireland this Tuesday at their home.
