Portugal are huge favourites as they host Lithuania at the Estádio Do Algarve in a Euro 2020 qualifier. Cristiano Ronaldo scored four goals as Portugal won 5-1 in Lithuania, can he do it again and reach 99 international goals?

Portugal Form


Portugal suffered a 2-1 defeat in Ukraine that put some pressure on their European Championship qualifying campaign. The loss snapped a five match winning streak that included victory in the inaugural UEFA Nations League.  

Cristiano Ronaldo scored a 72nd minute penalty to get the Seleção back in the game in Ukraine, but they couldn’t equalise despite being a man up and ending with more shots (24-5) and shots on target (10-4).

Fernando Santos and his side will feel confident with a home match against Lithuania followed by an away game in Luxembourg. They won 5-1 in Lithuania and defeated Luxembourg 3-0 in Lisbon.

Lithuania Form 


Lithuania have lost their last five matches in the European Championship qualifiers and sit bottom of Group B. A 5-1 defeat against Portugal was followed by a 2-0 loss in Ukraine and 2-1 home defeat against Serbia.

Donatas Kazlauskas came off the bench to score but they couldn’t match the Serbians. Lithuania have lost 14 of their last 16 matches in all competitions and don’t look like turning it around any time soon.

Portugal vs Lithuania Betting Odds


Portugal are odds on favourites here with Lithuania given little chance at 29.00 and 17.00 to claim a draw. Cristiano Ronaldo will be prominent in the first, anytime and multiple goalscorer markets after scoring four goals against Lithuania in the first leg.

We turn to the handicap market with bookmaker bet365 pricing Portugal at 1.40 in the -2 handicap market and 1.95 to cover the -3 handicap. Portugal have covered the -2 handicap in all three matches against Lithuania and I think they can make it four from four. 

Portugal vs Lithuania Match Up


Portugal should have far too much class once again with Ronaldo spearheading the attack. Portugal have scored 4+ goals in their last three matches against Lithuania and are likely to do it again.
