Tip Reasoning

  • Switzerland are unbeaten in their five qualifiers so far (W3, D2), keeping clean sheets in four.
  • The Swiss have won all three previous meetings with Lithuania, keeping clean sheets in two.
  • Lithuania have lost nine of their last ten starts, failing to score in nine including their 1-0 defeat to the Swiss in March.

Straightforward task for the Swiss

Three points against Lithuania this Tuesday night can keep the Swiss level with Italy at the top of Group C and Vladimir Petkovic’s men are backed to prevail at a canter in Vilnius.

This tie represents Switzerland’s game in hand in Group C and they travel to the Lithuanian capital just three points behind the Italians, who sit out the midweek action following their participation in the UEFA Nations League Finals.

The Swiss are second favourites to bag top spot and all important automatic qualification regardless of the result here as they still have to face the European champions in Rome next month, while they’re also six goals in arrears of the Azzurri with just three fixtures left to play.

Vladimir Petkovic’s charges may try and push the envelope in that respect this Tuesday, though ensuring the win is priority first and foremost.

Visitors’ backline unlikely to be troubled in Vilnius

Success for the Swiss should be a formality considering they’re unbeaten in qualifying thus far, with three of their five wins including a 1-0 triumph over Edgaras Jankauskas’ strugglers in St Gallen six months ago.

The Swiss were far from impressive that night, but they’re often a side who can be relied upon to get the job done, without putting themselves at undue risk. Petkovic’s side have kept clean sheets in four of their qualifiers, conceding just a single goal in their 3-1 away success against Bulgaria.

While Lithuania struck three when beating Bulgaria here at the weekend, they lost their previous nine internationals, failing to score in seven.

As such, a Swiss win to nil is the clear call for Tuesday night’s tie and 2-0 is our correct score prediction. The visitors have only averaged 1.2 goals in qualifying, so we’re not expecting them to out-do Italy’s 2-0 victory at this venue earlier in the campaign.
