Kick Off – 19.45pm Saturday 8th October 2016

Scotland are currently leading the qualifying group having won their opening game against whipping boys Malta in September, and will fancy their chances against a Lithuanian outfit who have struggled for wins in 2016.

The visitors are the underdogs to get a result at Hampden Park this weekend, but may put up a fight and inflict damage on a Scotland side who are by no means invincible.

With Scotland currently top of Group F with three points from their opening game, they are in great shape to finish in a coveted top-two spot to boost their hopes of progress into the play-offs or straight into the 2018 World Cup.

However, Gordon Strachan’s side have been on the wrong end of recent defeats to Italy and France which suggests they are still vulnerable. Scotland are 1/2 with Bet 365 to win against Lithuania on Saturday night, but won’t be taking anything for granted given the visitors’ impressive maiden Group F game.

Lithuania find themselves fourth in the group with one point from their opening game, having impressively drawn away to Slovenia in their opening game.

The visitors are 15/2 with Paddy Power to win against Scotland at Hampden Park this weekend, but face a difficult task to get a positive result given the lack of wins this year.

Lithuania have won just once in their six games in 2016, having lost to Romania, Russia and Latvia, while drawing against Poland and Slovenia. They haven’t won many, but haven’t lost many either so Scotland shouldn’t underestimate their opposition.

In their last three competitive games, Scotland have won two and drawn one ahead of their meeting with a Lithuania side who have managed just one victory this year.
