San Marino is probably one of the worst national teams, not only in Europe, on the world and the matches against that poor team is the perfect for other national teams to make a good goal difference.

They competed in qualifying for every European Championships and World Cup, but have never won a match in either competition. The only game they won was against Liechtenstein 1-0 in a friendly match, 10 years ago.

Look at below some of their previous matches in all competitions.

In the last 12 matches they were defeated in every with at least two goals difference. Only goal they have managed to score against Poland. Scorer was the defender Alessandro Della Valle (49/1 d) who will not play today. Our are also Mirko Palazzi (15/0 d), Gianluca Bollini (10/0 d) and Danilo Rinaldi (16/1 f).

Lithuania failed to qualify at World Cup this year finishing at 4th position in their qualifying group. They are not the top national team in Europe, but they are class above San Marino.

Lithuania have full squad available.

Those two national teams met two times 2004. in qualifications for World Cup 2006. and Lithuania beat them twice, at home 4-0 and away 0-1.

Lithuania should won this easy. My first betting thought is to bet on Lithuania to win with at least two goals difference, but they are not very effective, so it’s a little risky. The better option and real option, also risky (but, every bet is risky, right?), is half-time/full-time, and that’s mine betting advice for today. Another betting tip for today is the match between Ukraine and Slovakia. Betting preview for that match you can read here.

San Marino vs Lithuania Betting Tip: 2/2 @ 1.5 (Bet365), 1.7 (Marathon)
