Our forecast for a pair of Lithuania – Albania, which will have a face-to-face match on October 14. Sensationally, in the first meeting, the Lithuanians drove more eminent counterparts, who will surprise this time?
The Lithuanian national team , if not taking into account seven defeats in eight qualifying matches for the Euro, has been showing a very good game lately. Yes, the Lithuanians lost the opening game of the League of Nations against Kazakhstan (0: 2) at home, but then they steadily gained points. First, they defeated today’s opponent, and then brought troubles to Belarus (2: 2).
In a friendly match, the Balts were stronger than Estonia with a score of 3: 1. The team has no experienced midfielder Zhulpa.
Albania’s national team has only a victory over Belarus (2: 0) in this League of Nations draw. Then they lost to the Lithuanians with a minimum score, and also failed to hit the gates of Kazakhstan (0: 0), although they created enough chances to score.
To be fair, the main players of the national team were practically not called up for this training camp – there are no Strakosha, Agoli, Roshi, Mavray, Balay, Sadiku, Chikaleshi and Dzhaki.
The Lithuanian national team won the last face-to-face match.
The Lithuanian national team lost only one match out of five previous ones.
The national team of Albania scored only one meeting of the last four.
09/07/20 Albania Lithuania 0: 1
We think it’s time for the Lithuanians to loudly declare themselves in the international arena, even if there are no big names in the composition. They show very vigorous football this fall and play from a position of strength in any meeting, so today they are definitely not among the outsiders, especially on a familiar pitch. The guests, however, brought a composition that was far from optimal, wishing to test the young footballers. We do not believe in the Albanians, they looked too bad against the Kazakhs.
Our forecast is a double chance of Lithuania for 1.89 in BC Leon.
