Date: on the 10th of June, 2019 (Monday)
Match start: 19:45 (GMT+1)
Tournament: EURO-2020. Qualification stage.
On Monday in frames of the 4th round of the qualification stage to the continental championship, Serbia in Belgrade will meet with Lithuania. It is strange to see Serbia after three rounds on the last line, though the Balkan team has played one match less.
After the disastrous World Cup in Russia, all expected that Mladen Krstajić will surely get into the continental championship but the qualification stage has showed that Serbia has some problems.
In the first round the White Eagles have managed to gain one point in frames of the away match against strong Portugal, than on last Friday Serbia has lost to the Ukraine, having missed from the Blue and Yellows 5 unanswered goals.
But it is early to heap burning coals of shame on head after two matches. Frankly speaking, we aren’t jealous of Lithuania now. Besides the fact that this match will become the first home match for Serbia in frames of this qualification stage, the team of Mladen Krstajić will rip and tear in order to restore reputation for the failure in Lviv.
Lithuania is at the very bottom of the tournament bracket but this is quite expectable event. In the first round the Green and Yellows have lost to Luxembourg. And on Friday in frames of the home match with the Red Lions, the football players of Valdas Urbonas couldn’t gain revenge.
Lithuania was close to losing the match to Luxembourg but being shorthanded the team has managed to tie the game. Now Lithuania has poor prognosis, as the Green and Yellows will have to play against angry Serbia.
Our tip: Serbia (Asian Handicap -2.5) – odds 2.05
