Albania vs Lithuania Prediction & Betting tips
Has a preliminary decision already been made in Group 4 of the Nations League (League C)? After the first day of play anything is still possible, but a clear trend is already emerging. The duel between the two favorites was clearly won by Albania in Belarus on Friday evening. The black eagles are thus fully on course to win the group and want to improve on Monday with a three at home against Lithuania.
The guests travel to Tirana with a 2-0 bankruptcy against Kazakhstan in their luggage and are seen as clear outsiders by the best bookmakers. The match will be kicked off by Ukrainian referee Serhiy Boiko on Monday evening at 19:45 p.m.
The squad of the Albanian national team is quite prominent compared to the competition in the group. The captain and leader is defender Elseid Hysaj from SSC Napoli. In Germany, Klaus Gjasula (HSV) and Amir Abrashi (SC Freiburg) are under contract.
With such players, coach Edoardo Reja has a powerful squad that showed a good performance against Belarus on Friday despite the long break. The national team’s first game in 2020 was won 2-0 very confidently. Keidi Bare and Sokol Cikalleshi were the goalscorers in the well-deserved away win.
With the certainty that the team is well-rehearsed and with the newly gained self-confidence, the next success should be celebrated on Monday. The starting line-up will look very similar as no player has given cause to replace him. Even tactically, everything will remain the same and the 4-5-1 system that has been practiced has proven itself with the Albanians.
Spectators are not allowed in Tirana, which is why the home advantage disappears a little. Nevertheless, between Albania and Lithuania, the prognosis can be ventured that the individual superiority of the hosts will most likely lead to the Black Eagles’ second victory.
In the duel Albania vs. In Lithuania, the odds for an away win are sometimes in the double-digit range for a reason. Lithuania is currently one of the real football dwarfs in the world and has only had very few successes for several years. The only two recent victories have been against Sri Lanka and New Zealand.
Against more prominent opponents like Portugal (0: 6), Ukraine (0: 3) or Serbia (1: 4), the quality in the squad is not enough to be able to keep up. There is a lack of international stars in the team, which is why coach Valdas Urbonas’ hands are a little tied. The team’s captain is Fedor Cernych from Dynamo Moscow. Even against Kazakhstan, Lithuania had no chance on Friday and deservedly lost 2-0.
Just three own shots at the opponent’s goal in 90 minutes are simply not enough. In their last 17 international matches, Lithuania have not scored more than one goal in a single game. At least the fighting spirit and the willingness of the Urbonas protégés fit and four yellow cards show that the home side did not give up against Kazakhstan without a fight.
In Tirana too, the guests will try to trip the favorite. The bottom line is that the difference in play is too big, which is why a tip on the odds of the guests between Albania and Lithuania would not be a good recommendation.
