Match Preview

Nations League and defending European champions Portugal go to Vilnius in Lithuania to continue their quest to qualify for Euro 2020.

Although they find themselves a distant eight points behind Ukraine in Group B, they have the advantage of two games in hand and with two sides to automatically progress, Saturday’s 4-2 win in Serbia was a welcome step forward.

It proved to be something of a fraught match, which was scoreless after 40 minutes. William Carvalho opened the floodgates just before the break, with Goncalo Guedes getting a second around the hour mark. Nikola Milenkovic and Aleksandar Mitrovic scored either side of a Cristiano Ronaldo strike, before Bernardo Silva finally made the game safe.

Portugal were hyper-efficient in that game, scoring all of their four shots on target in what was an encounter trickier than the scoreline would portray.

Meanwhile, Fernando Santos’ side are undefeated since crashing out of the 2018 World Cup in the last 16 against Uruguay. They have played 11 subsequent games, winning six of those.

By contrast, they play opponents at a low ebb. Lithuania have just one point in European qualification and, having already played Luxembourg twice, appear destined to finish at the foot of Group B.

The home side have failed to win any of their last 11 internationals, going down to a heavy 3-0 loss against Ukraine on Saturday. During that encounter, they suffered an additional blow as captain and leading scorer Fedor Cernych went off hurt, rendering him a doubt for this glamour occasion.

Portugal have played Lithuania twice previously and have won both games by an aggregate of 9-2. If there was to be any change to this trend on Tuesday, it would be a huge upset.
