Lithuania v Estonia | Betting Preview

Date: October 9, 2014
Venue: LFF Stadium, Vilnius, Lithuania.
Kick off time: 19:45 hrs BST.

In Uefa Euro 2016 Qualification Group E match Lithuania will face Estonia. Group E has footballing heavyweights England and Switzerland who are odds on favourites to qualify directly to Euro 2016. While the rest of the group will try and hold on to the third spot for qualification to still remain an option.

Lithuania form: W-L-L-D-W

Lithuania comes into this fixture with a two nil away win against the minnows San Marino. This has temporarily placed them on top of the group after the first round of matches played. Though a win against San Marino does not provide an actual gauge of their potential still being on top of the league would be an added motivation as well.

Estonia form: L-L-W-L-W

Estonia started their journey towards Euro 2016 with a home win against Slovenia. A tight affair that they sealed with a late goal from Purje would no doubt leave them in the right frame of mind for the game against Lithuania.

Key Players

Lithuania: Darvydas Sernas.

This thirty year old sharp shooter, who plays his trade in the Polish club of Wigry Suwalki will be Lithuania’s best bet to score against Estonia. An early goal from him will definitely set the cat among the pigeons for Estonia.

Estonia: Konstantin Vassiljev.

Estonia’s thirty year old midfielder Konstantin Vassiljev is the player to look out for. An experienced veteran of seventy one games with an all-time top scorer of seventeen goals for his country will keep Estonia’s engine room running.

Betting Advice

A difficult game to call in which the visitors might just have enough quality going for them to bring home all three points (3.6 at BetVictor). The best that Lithuania can hope is to manage a draw with bet365 offering 3.1 for that result. Having said that if Lithuania have any ambition of playing the Euro 2016 then they have to take full points from this game.
