Russia national team hosts Lithuania team in a friendly. The match will be played at Otkrytie Arena on Saturday, March 26.
Russia qualified for the final stage in France despite some troubles along the way.

Russia improved results with Russian coach and finished second with 20 points behind Austria and two points ahead of Sweden with 21-5 goal difference. Russia are usually strong at own turn and rarely lose as hosts. In last 15 matches at home they took 9 wins, 4 draws and only 2 defeats both in last year to Austria and Croatia (0-1 and 1-3).

Lithuania are one of the weakest teams on the continent and they always failing to be competitive in the qualifiers for Euros or World Cups. This cycle wasn’t exception as Lithuania finished with tem points and 7-18 goal difference on 5th place in the standings above only San Marino, the worst European team. Lithuania national team are horrible on the road as they won one, drew two and lost 7 out of last ten matches on the road with 4-19 goal difference.
Russia and Lithuania met three times, Russia won twice (4-3 and 4-1) and one match ended with 0-0. Today’s hosts are unquestionable favorites and they should please their fans with confident victory.
Prediction for the match: Russia to win with -1.0 Asian handicap.
