Serbia v Lithuania – Betting Preview
Serbia will be fully expecting a victory here to begin the qualification stage brightly.
They won a friendly at the end of January against the USA which was much needed having lost 2 of their 3 games in Qatar, and being eliminated in the group stage of the World Cup.
They will be set on a win here, but the bigger test lies ahead, facing Montenegro on the 27th of March.
Dragan Stojkovic called up Lazar Samardzic turned down the option to play for Germany. The player is almost assured of a start or significant minutes here to justify his decision.
The visitor has only won two games since the start of 2021, beating Bulgaria in an impressive 3-1 win in October 2021. Then beating San Mario 2-1 in March 2022.
Since beating San Marino in march, Lithuania has fallen off a cliff with some horrible form, losing all but one of the subsequent games.
Even the draw they got was disappointing, be it being at home to the Faroe Islands, a game they were expected to win.
Looking at the 1×2 market first. Serbia is the favourite @ 2.45 to win. Lithuania is @ 21.0 to win, while the draw is @ 9.80.
