The Baltic Cup Final between Lithuania and Estonia is set to be an exciting clash as both teams vie for the title.

Below is an in-depth preview of the match, including predictions, team news, and form analysis.

Match Preview

Lithuania will host Estonia at the Darius and Girėnas Stadium for the Baltic Cup final on Tuesday.

The home side is looking to secure their 11th title, while Estonia aims for their fifth.

Recent Form

Lithuania's Form

Lithuania enters the final after an impressive 2-0 victory over Latvia. This win marked their first appearance in the final since 2016.

Despite finishing second-from-bottom in their Euro 2024 qualifying group, Lithuania's recent form has been positive.

They have won their last three matches without conceding a goal, showcasing a solid defence and newfound confidence under manager Edgaras Jankauskas.

Estonia's Form

Estonia, on the other hand, defeated the Faroe Islands 4-1 to book their spot in the final.

Despite this recent success, Estonia has struggled overall, losing 12 of their last 15 matches and managing just one win in their last 15 games.

The team has found it challenging to keep clean sheets, conceding 41 goals during this period.

Team News

Lithuania

Lithuania will likely see Edvinas Girdvainis start in defence after serving his suspension.

Armandas Kucys, who scored in the victory over Latvia, is expected to feature prominently in the forward line.

Manager Edgaras Jankauskas, who returned to the national team in 2023, has improved the team's performance with a 31% win rate from his 13 games in charge.

Probable Starting XI: Gertmonas; Lekiatas, Girdvainis, Servys; Lasickas, Vorobjovas, Golubickas, Romanovskij; Novikovas, Kucys, Cernych.

Estonia

New manager Jurgen Henn, who took over in early June, will likely stick with the squad that triumphed over the Faroe Islands.

Forwards Alex Matthias Tamm and Henri Anier are expected to lead the attack, while Rocco Robert Shein and Mihkel Ainsalu could continue their partnership in midfield.

Probable Starting XI: Hein; Larsen, Kuusk, Mets, Paskotsi; Miller, Ainsalu, Shein, Saarma; Anier, Tamm.

Prediction

Considering Lithuania's current form and defensive strength, they are likely to enter the match as favourites.

Estonia's defensive vulnerabilities could be exploited by the home side. We predict a 2-1 victory for Lithuania, securing their 11th Baltic Cup title.
