Injuries have limited his choices, with midfielders like Nemanja Matic and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic being among those to miss out. Mladen Krstajic has some thinking to do here in order to get his side better than what they were on Friday.
Valdas Urbonas will be missing both defender Saulius Mikoliunas and midfielder Modestas Vorogjovas after each of them received red cards in the draw with Luxembourg on Friday night. Goalkeeper Ernestas Setkus, defender Egidijus Vaitkunas, and forward Darvydas Sernas, once mainstays, are no longer preferred.
Yet another man to watch in the home team will be latest Real Madrid signing Luka Jovic, who is hungry for goals. Anyhow, the former Soviet republic are likely to return home empty-handed from the trip to Belgrade. The Lithuanians will be without duo Mikoliunas Vorobjas as they were sent off in a 1-1 draw with Luxembourg.

The head coach Mladen Krstajic has a very strong line-up on disposal featuring red-hot Luka Jovic and Dusan Tadic up front. Lazios superstar Sergej Milinkovic-Savic produced a superb display at the center of the park on Wednesday evening at VOLKSWAGEN ARENA. Both of them are enjoying the best seasons of their careers in Eintracht Frankfurt and Ajax.
Serbia will be aiming to make amends for a heavy 5-0 loss to Ukraine when they host Lithuania at their Stadion Rajko Mitic on Monday evening. The Eagles are likely to leave their hearts on the field and seeing that important attacker Aleksandar Mitrovic is likely to return to the starting line-up, we are tempted to put our money on Mladen Krstajics troops. This has to go down as a must-win game for the Serbs, who are determined to secure a top-two finish in Group B.
Serbia vs Lithuania Match Prediction
In seven matches, Serbia have taken six wins and lost just once to Lithuania. The most recent meetings were in the Nations League last year, in which Serbia won both times (4-1 at home and 0-1 away).
Serbia played one match in Group B and after ninety minutes of play, they brought home from Portugal one point. After a draw in Portugal, Ukraine managed to win the next game that took place in Luxembourg. Both teams are of relatively equal quality, and we expect an open fight. In the last four home matches, there were under 2.5 goals, but against Serbia, they scored two goals per game. The game before the one against Portugal, Serbia also played away only this time against Germany and the result was 1-1. Now with four points, they sit in the first place in Group B. Ukraine does not score too many goals when they play at home.
They have got to get something going, but even with Serbia experiencing difficulties, it is almost impossible to see them turning it around here and now. Lithuania will have those same feelings, but they have it much worse than Serbia do. They have just two draws, both consecutively, to go with eight losses in the last year, showing a severely awful run of form.
Marius Stankevicius is considered Lithuanias most notable footballer as he played for the likes of Lazio, Hannover, Sampdoria, Sevilla and Valencia in the past. Lithuania managed to beat Scotland in the qualifiers for the 2004 European Championship, but they eventually failed to book their place at the showpiece tournament in Portugal. The former Soviet republic have yet to book their place at the finals of a major tournament, but they were competitive in the UEFA Euro 2004 qualifiers as they managed to play out a draw with Germany on the road.
LFF Stadium is the home ground of the Lithuania national football team and the venue, who capacity is 5.067, was opened in 2004. Lithuania play their home games on artificial turf.
