Lithuania welcomes Portugal
The outsider in Group B Lithuania welcomes Portugal in a match from the qualifiers for the next European Championship. We are going to offer you our football tips tonight for this clash in the city of Vilnius.
Lithuania are clearly the weakest team in this group, winning just one point in four matches played so far. The Baltic country can’t hope of anything until the end of campaign, except of finishing with more than one point won.
In their last game in the group so far Lithuania hosted Ukraine at home, but got easily beaten with 0-3, which was kind of expected, of course. Andriy Shevchenko’s boys didn’t face much of a trouble to win the match and they did it with goals from Oleksandr Zinchenko, Marlos and Ruslan Malinovskiy.
After two draws in the first two rounds, the current European champion Portugal finally started winning. Few days ago Fernando Santos’ team had a tough visit to Serbia in Belgrade, which Selecao won with 4-2. William Carvalho, Goncalo Guedes, Cristiano Ronaldo and Bernardo Silva clinched this really crucial win for Portugal. Now the European champions can be much more calm about their campaign.
Against Serbia Portugal’s manager Fernando Santos decided to leave the young star Joao Felix on the bench, putting him on the pitch after the halftime break. Instead of him, Santos picked Valencia’s Goncalo Guedes, who scored one of the goals in Marko Dmitrovic’ net. Joao Felix is playing amazing for Atletico Madrid since the start of the season, so let’s see if Santos gives him a chance to start in Vilnius.
That’s our football tips tonight for the European qualifier between Lithuania and Portugal from Group B of the campaign this Tuesday. We don’t have any doubts that Selecao will take what’s theirs here – the three points.
