England vs Lithuania: Tips and prediction – 27.03.2015

By on March 27, 2015
England will host Lithuania in an easy game at first view, today from 19:45 in the Euro 2016 Qualifications. The home side is clearly in pole-position and another win could secure their place at the Euro 90%.

The english side recorded four victories in four games so far this campaign, scoring 12 goals and conceding only one in a group where Switzerland are the most important opponents. Roy Hodgson has a lot of missing players. To be more precise, Lallana, Sturridge and Wilshere are the most important right now. Sterling is in doubt, but he will probably be fit for this game.
England probable lineup: Hart – Walker, Jagielka, Cahill, Baines – Henderson, Carrick, Milner – Sterling – Welbeck, Rooney.
England missing players: Sturridge, Lallana, Wilshere, Shaw, Forster, Chamberlain.

On the other hand, Lithuania will come here to get as much as they can, so we expect them to field a defensive team, trying to get one point. They hope for a surprise in this campaign, to qualify at Euro 2016, but it’s still a long way. The guests have six points, being on the 4th place, having the same number of points as Slovenia (2nd) and Switzerland (3rd).
Lithuania probable lineup: Arlauskis – Vaitkunas, Kijanskas, Freidgeimas, Andriuskevicius – Cernych, Panka, Chvedukas, Zulpa, Vicius.
Lithuania missing players: Novikovas.

Prediction: 1/1 @ 1.40
It’s not a very safe bet, but we expect England to control the whole game, both on the pitch and on the scoreboard. Bet365 offers the best odds for our prediction right now, 1.40 to be more precise.
The best odds for England vs Lithuania: 1.11 – 10.00 – 34.00
