Lithuania bring the curtain down on their qualifying campaign in Group G on Thursday, and they will be looking to end a miserable campaign on a high note. However, Montenegro could yet keep their hopes of an automatic spot for the EUROs alive by landing victory on the road.
EURO 2024 Qualifier Preview
All the pressure in Group G will be on Montenegro on Thursday, as they look to keep alive their dreams of a top two finish in the standings. They mathematically remain in the hunt, but they will be relying on Serbia losing on the final day of action in Group G. Meanwhile, Montenegro will need to land victories in each of their remaining two matches in the opening round.
The visitors don’t have the insurance of a playoff spot to fall back on, meaning that they will need to land victories in each of their remaining matches in Group G. However, they have recorded just two victories from their opening six matches in the group, and they are the second-lowest scorers after netting just six times. But, they will take confidence from the fact that they have won two of their previous three.
Lithuania are the only side in Group G that have already exited the race to reach the EUROs next summer. They have picked up just a single victory from their seven matches, and their disappointing qualification campaign will draw to a close this week. However, they have been an attacking threat in all their matches, as they have scored an impressive eight goals.
But, wins have been challenging to come by throughout the last year, as they have landed just a single victory from their eight matches. However, they did avoid defeat in each of their two international matches last month, which included a fine 2-2 draw at home against Hungary.
Montenegro vs Lithuania Head to Head
Lithuania are yet to beat Montenegro in three previous attempts. However, the latest fixture between the sides in September did see a 2-2 draw played out. Montenegro landed victories in both of the previous two matches before that draw, including a 2-0 home win in September 2018.
Montenegro vs Lithuania Prediction
This should be an interesting clash in qualification this week. However, a chance could be taken on the points being shared, which would therefore end Montenegro’s slim hopes of finishing in the top two.
