Poland vs Lithuania Prediction & Betting tips
The Polish national team, which will start against Senegal only on Tuesday, June 19, indulges in a test match on Tuesday night, two days before the opening match of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. Opponent in the stadium Narodowy of Warsaw is neighbor Lithuania. The “Bialo-Czerwoni” are not quite in WM-form. Of the last five internationals you could win only one, 3: 2 at home against South Korea. In addition, there are 0: 1 home defeats against Mexico and Nigeria and a 0-0 against Uruquay. In the penultimate test match before the finals, there was a 2: 2 at home against Chile last Friday. The Poles had already led 2-0. At the World Cup, reaching the round of 16 is the minimum goal of the “white-reds”. Poland’s greatest achievements at the World Cup level are third places in 1974 and 1982. At the European Championships two years ago, it was enough to reach the quarter-finals. How far is Russia?
Poland secured the ticket for the World Cup in Russia in qualifying group E. There they met Denmark, Montenegro, Romania, Armenia and Kazakhstan. With 25 points, national coach Adam Nawalka’s men finished first with a five-point lead over Denmark. In ten games the White-Red scored 28 times and conceded 14 goals. The 14 goals were the highest value of all UEFA teams that qualified for the World Cup. Except for the away game in Denmark, which lost the Poles 4-0, and a draw in Kazakhstan, the Poles could win all games in qualifying for themselves. At the World Cup, the Poles in Group H meet Senegal, Colombia and Japan.
This group is probably the most balanced of the World Cup. Everyone can beat everyone here. The focus of the national team, of course, is Robert Lewandowski. The Bayern striker was with 16 goals top scorer in the World Cup qualifiers. But the Poles are also very dependent on their star. Since the European Championship in 2016, Poland has not won in all games where Lewandowski scored no goals. The Poles survived the European Championship unbeaten, but lost in the last eight on penalties against the eventual champions Portugal. Kamil Glik, as the defensive boss, was injured shortly before the World Cup.
Lithuania played in Group F qualifying in Group F. The team of national coach Edgaras Jankauskas had to settle behind England, Slovakia, Scotland and Slovenia in the end with the fifth and thus penultimate place in the group. In ten games, there was only one victory – at home 2-0 against Malta. There were also three draws and six defeats. The goal difference was at 7:20 goals. So far, Lithuania has not participated in any finals, neither a World Cup nor European Championship. Among the greatest successes of the football nation include draw against the then Vice World Champion Germany (2003) and the then world champion Italy (2006).
Of the last 13 international matches, the Balts could win only one, 1-0 in Armenia. Ten games in this period were lost. There were also two draws against Malta and Lithuania. In the Nations League starting in September, Lithuania will face Romania, Serbia and Montenegro. Last Friday, the men of Coach Jankauskas lost 1-0 against World Cup participants Iran. The winner for the Iranians fell in the 88th minute. Lithuania have been without their own goals nine times in the last 13 games. In the other four games, there was only one goal each for the Baltic.
