Lithuania lost for the seventh competitive match in succession as they were beaten by Kazakhstan last week and now they face a tricky trip to Albania.

The hosts came away from their visit to Belarus with a 0-2 success and they will be very confident of making it back-to-back wins as they return to home soil.
