National Stadium (Warsaw, Poland)
Poland are massive favorites according to their odds 1.25
Not such an easy game for Poland like many may suggest. Lithuania have abilities to punish the Poles for some defensive flaws. However, Lithuania hardly would cope with classy star forwards of Poland. But would they push so hard having in minds possibilities of an injury?

Analysis and Reasons for Poland vs Lithuania Betting Tips and Forecast
Poland Fresh Info, Team News and Lineup
Polish coach Adam Nawałka still has certain worries before departure to Russia. His defenders occasionally losing pace and composure which results in conceding unnecessary goals like it happened in a 2:2 tie with an experimental Chilean side three days ago. Maybe it wasn't a good idea to drop young backs from top European leagues like Marcin Kamiński from VfB Stuttgart or Paweł Jaroszyński from Chievo in favor of somewhat aged 30+ Michał Pazdan or Artur Jędrzejczyk from a below-par local championship? Anyway, nothing can be changed already.
The positive side is an outstanding form of Poland's international attacking players Robert Lewandowski and Piotr Zieliński who have scored in every recent game where the White and Reds did score ever.
Poland Current Form
Poland can't be happy with their recent results in friendlies. Only one win after three scoreless failures, and a lot of conceded goals overall.

Most likely, Poland will field the same lineup that started previously, in a 4-2-3-1 formation. They are: Szczesny (gk) - Rybus, Pazdan, Bednarek, Piszczek - Linetty, Krychowiak - Grosicki, Zielinski, Blaszczykowski - Lewandowksi.
Lithuania Fresh Info, Team News and Lineup
Edgaras Jankauskas works in Lithuania without any high hopes as is a minnow football nation. The clashes against World Cup participants are already a big experience per se. But at their best, his brave men have been able to achieve only narrow losses 0:1 to England (on October 8) and Iran (on June 8).
Most of this national team players represent local clubs, however, there is one playing in Poland - midfielder Arvydas Novikovas from Jagiellonia Białystok. Artūro Žulpa and Manto Kuklys who played with Iran didn't fly to Poland.
Lithuania Current Form
Lithuania have shown some progress in the "parking the bus" art but still done not perfectly well, holding firmly with Iran for 88 minutes until the goal eventually came in.
|08/06/2018 Iran - Lithuania 1:0|
|05/06/2018 Lithuania - Latvia 1:1||30/05/2018 Estonia - Lithuania 2:0|
|27/03/2018 Armenia - Lithuania 0:1|
|24/03/2018 Georgia - Lithuania 4:0|
Predicted Starting Formation for Lithuania
There are a lot of experiments in the Lithuanian squad so we can only guess. However, looking how they played against pretty similar strength and style to Polish ones, we can suppose a stronghold of a 4-1-4-1 formation consisting of Švedkauskas (gk) - Vaitkūnas, Jankauskas, Januševskij, Borovskis - Slivka - Vorobjovas, Leimonas, Lasickas, Veliulis - Šernas.

Poland vs Lithuania Accurate Prediction
From Poland's point of view, these rehearsals may mimic a World Cup play against Japan in the final matchday of the Group H. It could lead to the need of arranging a goal difference to progress to playoffs. While two other group rivals, Senegal and Colombia, are hardly to have any similarities to Lithuania.
Outcome Forecast: Home Win
Correct Score Prediction: 3:1 for Poland
