Topic: Euro 2008 Qualifier: Lithuania - Italy
Lithuania have been pretty good so far. Managed 1-1 in the previous meeting between these two, 0-1 defeats against both Ukraine and France on their last two. Are missing several players who would have started the match.
World champions Italy have as expected had some pretty bad matches after the World Cup final about a year ago. 2-0-1 away. The defeat came against France.
Sep 2, 06 Italy 1 - 1 Lithuania
I believe Italy will hit back in this one and probably win the match 0-1. Lithuania managed to win 1-0 against Georgia here on Saturday, lost 0-1 against France and 1-2 against Scotland in their other two home matches. Italy managed a 2-1 win over Faroe Islands on Satuday. In their other two away matches the result have been 1-3 in France and a 3-1 win in Georgia.
I also believe there is a good chance for under 2.5 goals in this match. Their last meeting ended in a 1-1 draw, but I believe Italy will win this match 0-1.
Italy to win, Italy to win with 1-0 handicap and Under 2.5 goals.
