Free Betting Tips Ukraine vs Lithuania
In the first round, there was a clear 3-0 in favor of the yellow-blue. The bookmakers also favor the leaders of the table in the second round between Ukraine and Lithuania. Anything but a home win would be a big surprise in Kharkiv.
Andriy Shevchenko, the figurehead of Ukrainian football and current national coach, is instrumental in boosting his national team. For several years, the trend of success of the Ukrainians can be seen, which was impressively demonstrated, among other things, with the strong World Cup qualifiers, in which just missed the finals, and the Nations League promotion.

Ukraine – Statistics & Current Form
The Ukrainian national team has great potential. But this is already known since the World Cup qualifiers, when the Ukrainians narrowly missed the World Cup ticket against Croatia. In the Nations League, UEFA’s new competition, promotion to Liga A has been fixed. The upward trend of the Ukrainian selection continues in this calendar year.
In the European Championship qualification, the Ukrainians are currently leading the group. With 13 points from the first round matches, the team of Andriy Shevchenko almost no longer has the ticket for the European Championship 2020. So far, only a single goal conceded, with which the Ukrainians together with Belgium put the best defensive of the entire European Championship qualification.
“This is the most important game for us. Everyone knows we can increase the chance of surviving the group with a positive outcome. ” – Andriy Shevchenko
The only goal in the group stage was surprisingly against Luxembourg. The small state went even in the meantime with 1: 0 in the lead and had to be defeated only after an own goal in the final minute of stoppage time with 1: 2. At home, however, Ukraine made another tough start against Luxembourg and only managed a narrow 1-0 victory.
After the 5-0 victory over Serbia, the performance at home against the Luxembourg selection was surprising. With a home win over Lithuania, the Shevchenko team now set the course for the European Championship 2020. At home, the Ukrainians have recently won four competitive games and conceded not a single goal.
The Ukrainian team will meet Portugal second after the match against Lithuania. Compared to the last squad there were some changes in the Ukrainians. How Andriy Shevchenko will let his team play against Lithuania, is not yet clear. Last was put on the offensive on Tsyhankov, Moraes and Yarmolenko. The midfield trio, however, formed Kovalenko, Malinovsky and Zinchenko.
In the last but very strong defense, there are likely to be no changes. If the yellow and blue continue to be as strong as before, a home win over Lithuania will be the purest routine. For a Ukraine against Lithuania tip on the home side waving odds of just 1:10.
Expected formation of Ukraine:
↪ Piatov – Mykolenko, Matviienko, Kryvtsov, Bolbat – Malinovskyi, Stepanenko, Zinchenko – Yarmolenko, Yaremchuk, Marlos

Lithuania – Statistics & Current Form
Lithuania is the point supplier in Group B. As a group last Lithuanian selection has collected at least one defeat against each group opponent. At the home game against Luxembourg, there was the only point win for Lithuania. However, the fact that the Lithuanians are not playing any special role in the European Championship qualification has been demonstrated by the most recent qualifying results at the competitions.
Since qualifying for the friendly against Sri Lanka in July 2018, Lithuania have been without an international success. Meanwhile, Lithuania has been without matches for twelve matches. Ten of the last twelve internationals have been lost. Only in the games against Luxembourg and Azerbaijan there were draws for the Lithuanian selection.
Lithuania have conceded a total of 12 goals in the last three internationals. In the five group matches, the Lithuanians have scored four goals, two of them in the games against Luxembourg. Surprisingly, Lithuania also scored in the group matches against Serbia and Portugal each scored a goal.
Stars are searched in vain in the squad of the Lithuanians in vain. Most valuable player is currently Arvydas Novikovas, who is under contract with Legia Warsaw. A total of eleven legionaries were appointed to the upcoming internationals against Ukraine and Serbia in the national squad.
Coach Valdas Urbonas has little to lose in the next few games, which is why his team can play freely. Due to the lack of quality in the squad, a surprise in Kharkiv will still be rather unrealistic. Even a scoring of the Urbonas Elf is rewarded with lucrative odds.
Estimated formation of Lithuania:
↪ Setkus – Andriuskevicius, Palionis, Girdvainis, Mikoliunas – Simkus – Verbickas, Vorobjovas, Kuklys, Slivka – Laukzemis
Last matches of Lithuania:
⚽️ 10.09.2019 – Lithuania Vs. Portugal 1: 5 (European Championship Qualification)
