Reasons for betting on Lithuania vs Scotland tip.
Gordon Strachan and Scottish national team are ahead of a decisive match in these qualifications. If they succeed and win in Lithuania, they will still have a chance to reach Russia. On the other hand, if they fail, Tartan Army will once again experience another disappointment.
Scotland is at the place number 4 in the group F, with 8 points, 4 less than Slovakia on the second place. Lithuania has only theoretical chances to reach that spot because they have 5 in total. Also, the hosts are terrible at the moment.
The home team has only one victory in the entire qualifications. They are on a bad streak at the moment because they have 4 straight defeats. Furthermore, in 3 of those games, they haven’t scored, and in all of them, Lithuania allowed at least two goals. After winning 5 points in the opening three rounds, something went wrong for Edgars Jankauskas’ team. Their game ultimately fell a part. However, they often know to surprise when nobody expects. On many occasions, a trip to Lithuania was unfortunate for many European teams.
The Tartan Terriers improved their plays, and they have collected 5 points in the last 3 games. The most recent one was against England, 2-2, where they had a chance to snap the whole prey, but eventually, Harry Kane prevented this from happening. If weren’t for that goal in the injury time, things would have been much brighter for the Scots.
The guests in this match need to attack right from the start, because, as we said at three points are imperative. After this event, they will have an easy job against Malta and home. All six points from these two contests, could catapult Scotland all the way up, even to the second place. Leigh Griffiths and the boys have to improve their game away from Scotland, as they have two straight defeats in these qualifications at the moment. Against England and Slovakia, with the same result, 3-0.
