Lithuania vs Faroe Islands Tips and Prediction
In the previous season, Lithuania was able to get eight points from its six Nations League games, but so far in their first four games this year, they have failed to do so.
Their goal differential of -11 is the worst in any group at this point, and it could have been worse if Turkey had scored on more than two of the 37 shots on goal they had against them in their previous match.
Having served as Lithuania’s technical director since December of last year, head coach Valdas Ivanauskas has subsequently been released of his duties and has been succeeded as head coach by German manager Reinhold Breu.
Since the beginning of 2021, Lithuania has only won two of their previous 19 international games in all competitions, but if they want to stay in League C Group 1, they must defeat the Faroe Islands on Thursday and find a winning formula.
Faroe Islands have gained four points from as many games in League C Group 1 after being promoted as group winners in the previous season.
In their first two games against Turkey and Luxembourg, Hakan Ericson’s team lost, giving up five goals without a reply. However, they recovered to beat Lithuania at home, 2-1, thanks to goals from Viljormur Davidsen and Jakup Andreasen.
The Faroe Islands are currently four points ahead of Lithuania at the bottom of the group after their most recent match, which ended in a 2-2 draw with Luxembourg. Although promotion is not possible, a win on Thursday would guarantee their survival.
As a result, if the Faroe Islands want to defeat a fired-up Lithuania team this week, they will need to improve their road performance. Since September 2020, they have only won one of their last 13 away international matches.
The Faroe Islands Squad will be the minor Best despite winning the opposite match and having a dismal road record, so Lithuania is under pressure to secure all three points.
Both countries should pose challenges in the final third, but the guests should have enough qualifications on their side to prevail.
