Luxembourg take on the visitors Lithuania in the round 6 match of UEFA Nations League (League C). The match will be played on Sunday, September 24th at Stade de Luxembourg (Luxembourg).
Luxembourg has raised their reputation, but is not yet ready to aim for more. The Red Lions, of course, see as a benchmark the progress that has been shown since a dozen years ago by another modest country, Iceland. The Grand Duchy also now has quite bright players - Gerson Rodriguez, the Thiel brothers and others. Moreover, with Luke Holtz, it turns out to develop his own style. The victory in the group of the debut League of Nations became a symbol of success. Yes, and in last year's qualification they’ve managed to win three times. But the current group is already very strong. The summer brought a significant 7 points, 4 with the Faroe Islands and a confident victory over Lithuania on the road. But there is also Turkey in the quartet. They won in June 2-0. In Istanbul on September 22, the leaders gave a cool duel. Gerson Rodriguez and company took the lead three times, but eventually ended up 3-3.

Lithuania will defend its right not to fall even lower in playoffs. The Yellow-Greens are very weak in European football. In last year's selection they lost 7 times, with the only victory over Bulgaria. Now the wards of Valdas Ivanauskas are no better. The Balts finished the summer without a single point. Moreover, in June it was only possible to score at least a goal against the Faroe Islands, but even this opponent lost, 1-2. The rest of the opponents, twice Turkey, and Luxembourg before them, beat the outsider. Autumn began with a hosting Faroe Island in Vilnius. On the one hand, at least there it was possible to take the 1st point - the sides ended in a draw 1-1. On the other hand, as a result, the Lithuanians finally “booked” the last place for themselves.
In 2009, the teams played for the first time, and then Lithuania was able to win. But in the next 4 meetings, Luxembourg won three times with a single draw. Luxembourg will definitely remain 2nd, and Lithuania - 4th, so the match has no tournament value. But the hosts are clearly stronger - we are waiting for the victory of the host.
Prediction for the match: Luxembourg to win.
