Northern Ireland playing for a second win 

Three-time qualifiers for the World Cup finals Northern Ireland are having another failed campaign this term. To point out, the Green and White Army have not qualified for the World Cup since 1986. Also, Northern Ireland’s best result in the finals was in 1958 when they reached the quarter-finals.

In the current qualifiers, coach Ian Baraclough saw his team win just one of their six matches and that was against Lithuania. In their last match, Northern Ireland missed the chance to register their second win in the group over Bulgaria. To point out, Baraclough’s team went ahead in the first half. However, they conceded two goals in ten minutes as the match turned upside down despite the Irish dominating the match.

Lithuania to finish the qualification on a positive note

According to the Fifa rankings, Lithuania weakened immensely in the past 13 years. In fact, the Rinktine slipped from 37th position in 2008 to their current 135th. That justifies their bad results in this qualification campaign losing six of their seven matches. Now they are left with one match to play and coach Ivanauskas will do his best to finish on a positive note.

However, Lithuania’s stats speak for themselves. Notably, the “National Team” has no clean sheets in ten matches. In addition, they scored on average 0.3 goals per game in their last five away games. Also, Ivanauska’s team failed to score in seven of their last ten matches. Surely much improvement is needed in all aspects of this Lithuanian side.

Northern Ireland vs Lithuania Key Points

  • Northern Ireland’s last two games at home ended in goalless draws
  • Lithuania lost all of their last five away games

Northern Ireland vs Lithuania Prediction

Despite the fact that this match is unimportant in terms of qualification, we can find some interesting markets to bet on. Obviously, Northern Ireland are the favorites to win this match. And according to the h2h record and the market stats, that outcome is the most probable one.

As for the goals market, since this is Lithuania’s last match, we might see an open game. In effect, over 2.5 goals seem probable with the stats showing a 55% chance of that feat happening. 

As a result, we will back a double chance outcome combined with over 2.5 goals at Vbet. 

And for our second prediction, we chose both teams to score.
