Serbia vs Lithuania Predictions


Lithuania lost every time to Serbia in Belgrade, conceding 13 and scoring only two goals in four matches. I am backing hosts to maintain high efficiency and to score in both halves. Mitrovic to score a header is value.

  • Serbia have won their last 4 matches against Lithuania
  • Serbia have scored 10 goals in their last 3 matches against Lithuania
  • Serbia’s Aleksandar Mitrovic has scored 5 goals in his last 3 matches against Lithuania
  • Lithuania have lost 8 of their last 9 matches

Head to Head


Serbia have a 7-1 advantage against Lithuania in 8 matches so far.

The most recent one took place in Vilnius in 2019 and Serbia won it narrowly 2-1 with Aleksandar Mitrovic scoring a brace.

Serbia Form


Even though they scored the highest number of goals of all teams in Group G, Serbia were eliminated in the first phase of recently ended World Cup 2022 in Qatar.

The Eagles lost to Brazil (0-2) and Switzerland (2-3), while the duel against Cameroon ended in a six-goals thriller draw (3-3).

Dragan Stojkovic’s side topped the UEFA Nations League B/Group 4 with 13 points from six games, ahead of Norway, Slovenia and Sweden.

They were great in terms of efficiency, scoring 13 goals in total.
