Serbia vs Lithuania
UEFA Nations League
Date: Tuesday, 20 November 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadion Partizana (Belgrade).
Serbia host Lithuania in what is expected to be an entirely one-sided affair on Tuesday evening in Belgrade. The Eagles confirmed the favourites tag in their respective in the inaugural Nations League campaign. They won two and drew two of four games before November’s final two home ties against Montenegro and Lithuania. Such results were enough to keep the Serbians at the very top of the ladder with a two-point cushion on Romania and a one-point lead ahead of Montenegro before November’s matches.
The team led by Mladen Krstajic will have a great opportunity to back up such fine form and finish the year in style on Tuesday when they take on the rock-bottomed Lithuania. The visitors are just too weak for this level and they will deservedly be dropped down to League D football in the next edition of Nations League. Lithuania lost all four games so far, conceding as many as nine goals along the way. They shipped four goals in a catastrophic home defeat to Montenegro last month.
Serbia vs Lithuania: Head-to-head
The two sides battled it out in the World Cup Qualifying campaign back in 2008/09.
Teams snatched a single win in front of the home crowd each back then.
Serbia gained the lead in the head to head record thanks to a 0-1 victory from the beginning of this term of Nations League in September in Vilnius. Dusan Tadic made the difference netting the only goal from the spot back then.
Serbia vs Lithuania: Prediction
Serbia hit the post on several occasions in the mentioned first round tie against Lithuania in Vilnius. They have just much more quality in their ranks and we would be shocked to see anything else but a comprehensive victory for Mladen Krstajic’s side here.
We also expect to see Eintracht Frankfurt’s red-hot forward Luka Jovic in action. He is certainly our top suggestion for the anytime goalscorer bet after netting nine goals in Frankfurt’s shirt in this term of Bundesliga.
