What has been Portugal and Lithuania's form in the 2020 UEFA Euro Qualifiers?
Portugal lost their first UEFA Euro Qualifying match during the most recent international break, as Ukraine defeated them with a 2-1 score. Prior to that loss, A Selecao had won three in a row, with Cristiano Ronaldo playing a key role in those wins by scoring six goals in those three wins.
Lithuania has lost five games in a row, which has buried their chances of success in the UEFA Euro Qualifiers. Coach Valdas Urbonas and his men will try to avoid one more embarrassing loss against the Portuguese side, even if they have never walked out of that country with a single point in their hands.
What is Portugal and Lithuania's position in Group B of the 2020 UEFA Euro Qualifiers?
Portugal is currently second in Group B of the UEFA Euro Qualifiers with eleven points, trailing Ukraine by eight with only two games to play. The Selecao can't afford any surprises since Serbia is one point behind the current UEFA Euro holders in this group.
Lithuania is searching for their first win in the UEFA Euro Qualifiers, which has seen them drop to fifth place in Group B. The team in yellow and green has conceded 19 times in the ongoing Qualifiers, while they have only been able to score five times.

Midfielder Arvydas Novikovas was left out by coach Valdas Urbonas due to technical decision, leaving most of the responsibility to captain Saulius Mikoliunas.
