Ukraine hosts Lithuania
Ukraine hosts Lithuania in a game from Group B of the qualifiers for Euro 2020. We are going to take a look at this fixture at the Oblasny SportKomplex Metalist in the city of Kharkiv in our soccer matches tomorrow. Let’s go!
Ukraine are the current leader in this group. The Golovna Komanda have 13 points won from five games played, being 5 points ahead of the second Portugal. But they also have one game more, compared to the European champions. The fight for the first place is far from over, but the Ukrainians are perfectly aware – they must keep winning, if they want to win the group.
Ukraine started their participation in this group with a very strategic draw against Portugal in Lisboa, which was followed by four consecutive wins. The manager Andriy Shevchenko could be really happy with his players’ performance so far, there’s no doubt about that.
In the previous round Ukraine visited Lithuania in Vilnius and didn’t face problems to win the game with 3-0. Manchester City’s Oleksandr Zinchenko opened the score, while Marlos and Ruslan Malinovskiy finished the job for the visiting team.
Far from surprising, Lithuania are the weakest team in the group. At this moment they are 5th in the standings with just one point won so far, being three points behind the 4th Luxembourg. One draw and four losses – this is what Lithuania can offer so far in this qualifying campaign. Their only point so far came during the home game against Luxembourg.
Of course, probably nobody is thinking that Lithuania can trouble the leader in the group Ukraine, especially away from home. We expect to see Shevchenko’s boys winning this match with ease. That’s what we are going to advice you in our soccer matches tomorrow prediction.
