Lithuania – Scotland: Preview & Prediction
In this team perhaps highlight Novikovas and striker Cernych, both to play in the Polish championship. Lithuania come from 3 consecutive defeats, Czech Republic and England away from home and finally the reception to Slovakia.
Away from home they only scored 1 point as a result of a draw in Scotland against the Scots, an unexpected result but well achieved by the Lithuanians.
Lithuania are no longer able to qualify for the World Cup and I think they will experience some difficulties in these next matches because they will face teams still fighting for that goal to qualify for the World Cup.
Scotland are still in contention for the World Cup but a little late for rivals England, Slovakia and Slovenia.
Scotland know they have to win this match, otherwise it might be “Goodbye” in this fight, as England will surely win and Slovakia and Slovenia will face each other for what they will score.
Scotland come from a 1-0 win over Slovenia and a 2-2 draw against England in a crazy game in which they suffered the equalizer in a time of compensation.
Escaped 2 points of extreme importance.
Scotland has a very straightforward British football, is a dangerous team in parachute and with many players to play in mid-level teams in the Premier League. Scotland comes to Lithuania with only one possible result, to win.
Scotland by norm out of home is not usually a very strong selection at the level of results, but here it is not possible to choose, it is to win or to win.
Any other result and leaves the Scots with foot and a half of outside the fight for the World-wide one.
Lithuania is not exactly a very strong team and I therefore hope that Scotland will try to take the game from early on and try to get the ball into the goalposts very often and with good attacks in the attack.
Lithuania should concede the dominance to the Scots and try to play against the attack.
If the Scots are pragmatic to attack, I fully believe in a victory and in the continuation in the fight for a Place that allows them to fight for the World Cup.
