The UEFA Nations League is back in action with another set of matches this week as Turkey take on Lithuania on Tuesday. Both teams have a point to prove and will want to win this game.
Lithuania made a poor start to their Nations League campaign and will need to make a comeback in the coming weeks. The hosts suffered a damaging 2-0 defeat at the hands of Luxembourg in their previous game and will need to bounce back this week.
Turkey, on the other hand, have kicked off their campaign in impressive fashion and will look to top their group this season. The Turkish outfit eased past Faroe Islands by a 4-0 margin last week and will be confident ahead of this fixture.

The two European sides are yet to lock horns on in an official competition and will look to make their mark this week. Both squads have made important strides over the past year and can be impressive on their day.

Turkey have an excellent squad at their disposal but have largely failed to meet expectations over the past year. The likes of Hakan Calhanoglu and Cengiz Under can pack a punch on their day and will need to be at their lethal best this week.
Lithuania have improved in recent months but will need to play out of their skins in this fixture. Turkey are the better team at the moment and should be able to win this game.
