Lithuania take on the visitors Faroe Island in the round 5 match of UEFA Nations League (League C). The match will be played on Thursday, September 22nd at LFF stadionas (Vilnius).
Lithuania managed to get a tough win only over San Marino this year. The Yellow-Greens conceded a goal even from such an outsider, squeezing out minimal success in a friendly match, 1-2. When it came to meetings within the framework of the League of Nations, Valdas Ivanauskas' wards showed their football toothlessness. And not only against the favorites, Turkey (0-6 away, 0-2 at home), but also with seemingly potentially more or less equal opponents. Even Luxembourg they lost 0-2 at home. And with the Faroese, finally scoring a goal (Chernykh in the 6th minute), in the end they still lost with a score of 1-2. If they do not win now, then the Balts will definitely become the last in their group.

The Faroe Islands are no longer such a hopeless outsider. The "Sheep breeders" do not even represent an independent country, but a remote enclave. But still, they are somehow trying to focus on their “distant relatives”, Iceland and Finland, who experienced a football renaissance. Yes, all the same, in the qualifying rounds, at least 1 victory in the qualification is still a good result, and the penultimate place in the group is the maximum and almost unattainable goal. But with direct competitors, in the last cycle of the Nations League, it turned out to take 3 wins and draws, winning their group and rising to a higher division. And it seems that there are good chances to gain a foothold there. In addition to defeating direct competitors, the Lithuanians, Håkan Eriksson's wards took a 2-2 draw with Luxembourg (moreover, they won back a 2-goal gap on the road). This means that a draw is now enough for them on the road to guarantee 3rd place.
Lithuania had 6 victories in a row over the Faroe Islands. But in the last 3 fights, the sides exchange victories 2-1 - and twice it happened to be in favor the “sheep breeders”. Judging by the odds, Lithuania are waiting for revenge. But they are frankly not impressive, so you should take a closer look at the offer "visitors do not lose".
Prediction for the match: Faroe Islands to win with +0.5 handicap (X2).
