World Cup Qualification Previews & Predictions

England will be at the World Cup 2018 after a 1-0 home win over Slovenia on Thursday night. It was a very poor performance from the Three Lions though and punters will have serious reservations about their chances at the finals next summer. So with everything done and dusted in terms of qualification, they can at least relax and try and express themselves as they face Lithuanian who have just the one victory in their campaign and they could only manage a 1-1 draw against Malta in the week as well. It should be easy, but will England struggle to break down a defensive side again?

Lithuania vs England Betting Tips

So England will be at the World Cup next summer. They have won their group following a laboured 1-0 win at home against Slovenia on Thursday. England’s blushes were saved by Harry Kane in stoppage time after the Three Lions had lacked a cutting thrust throughout against a side who had set up to keep them at arm’s length. So once again, with a lack of creativity, England still managed to get the job done. England will be helped out by getting Dele Alli back into the line after his one match suspension. His Spurs team mate Harry Kane is the 5/2 bet365 first goalscorer favourite for this match, which is nothing more than a dead rubber because Lithuania have nothing to play for.

It’s hard to see any game that England go into being a high scoring one and therefore both teams not to score is a price of 5/6 and you have an option of under 2.5 goals at 21/20 which looks tremendous value. Can England actually produce a powerful, convincing attacking performance though? They have averaged under 2 goals per game so far in the group and considering the level of opposition that they have faced, that’s been a poor return from them.

As it stands at the moment, England are a big price of 20/1 at bet365 to win the World Cup 2018. It’s been a dour, laborious qualification campaign from them.

England and Lithuania have met just three times before and England are 3-0 up from that head to head. Each of those wins were with a clean sheet as well. England to win to nil with bet365 on Sunday is a price of even money which looks stacks of value. In the bet365 correct score market, an England 2-0 option returns a price of 11/2 while you can get more conservative with them winning 1-0 at a quote of 7/1. England will be facing a Lithuania side who have claimed just the one win in the group and who only played out a 1-1 draw with Malta on Thursday. They shouldn’t trouble the Three Lions too much you would think.

Lithuania are on six points in the group from their nine matches, having scored seven goals and having conceded an average of over two per game. Still, with the lack of threat from England taken into consideration, under 2.5 goals at bet365 is trading at a price of even money. Lithuania have four points from their four home games so far in the group and that came from a draw against Slovenia and a win over Malta. They have scored in all but one of their home fixtures in the group, but it is hard to see them getting at England too much.
