Italy vs Lithuania Preview
Italy came into the qualification campaign with a bang, as they convincingly beat the Northern Ireland team by a 2-0 margin, a win which would potentially dictate the Italians momentum for the rest of the campaign. Italy face a tricky test in the form of Bulgaria, before they face Lithuania, and they would be hoping to rely on the star man Ciro Immobile to bring in the valuable goals as they look to also participate in the UEFA Euros 2020, which is to be held this year.
Lithuania was beaten 4-0 against Kosovo, prior to the start of the campaign and need a miraculous performance to get any points from the Italians. The Lithuanian attack need to take on the veteran defensive duo of Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini to score against the run of play, with experience and quality setting the two sides apart in this encounter.
