England booked their place at next year’s World Cup finals with a laboured 1-0 win over Slovenia but can hopefully celebrate in style when closing the qualifying campaign in Lithuania.
The Three Lions have prevailed in all three previous meetings with Sunday’s opponents, obliging 2-0 at Wembley back in March and claiming 4-0 and 3-0 victories in Euro 2016 qualifiers.
Another win to nil in Vilnius is quoted at 5/4 and that looks a gift for our Lithuania vs England betting predictions.
A Look At Lithuania’s Betting Odds
Lithuania have picked up just six points from their nine Group F games, scoring only seven goals in the process.
Thursday’s 1-1 draw in Malta allowed their opponents to claim a first point and that poor effort came after last month’s 3-0 and 4-0 defeats to Scotland and Slovenia respectively.
Edgaras Jankauskas had Deivydas Matulevicius up front against Malta and he is only rated good enough to be on the bench for Hibs in the Scottish Premiership.
England boss Gareth Southgate has taken great pride in having “one of the best defensive records in Europe in qualifying” and we can’t see the Three Lions easing off in that department here.
Looking at the Lithuania vs England odds, we’re splitting our correct score stakes between 2-0 at 6/1 and 3-0 at 8/1.
A Look At England’s Betting Odds
England’s win over Slovenia wasn’t pretty, with many of the home fans having cried enough before Harry Kane poked in a Kyle Walker cross four minutes into stoppage time.
Southgate admitted: “Was it the performance we wanted and the night we wanted? No, absolutely not.
“But I was given the job to keep things steady a year ago. The objective was to qualify for Russia. Now we have the opportunity to look how we evolve the team.”
The England boss suggested that some of his fringe players were fortunate to be in the squad for this double-header due to injuries elsewhere, but that could spur on anyone given a chance to shine.
With Russia 2018 places up for grabs, we’re hoping the Three Lions can establish a higher tempo early on here and like Evens they lead at half-time and full-time for our England vs Lithuania betting tips.
