The most exciting relegation battle from the UEFA Nations League in 2024 has reached its climax, where League C Group 4 Gibraltar will play Lithuania Group 1 of League C in a two-legged play-off. This upcoming match will be crucial for both teams to avoid relegation to League D in the next Nations League cycle; this sets the stage for a tense and hotly contested encounter. Overall, the Gibraltar vs. Lithuania match will be a visual treat for all football enthusiasts, and the game will be more competitive as both teams are hungry for a win to maintain their position in the league table. The first match was scheduled for March 21, 2024, at Estádio Algarve (Faro/Loulé), and the second match will take place on March 26, 2024, at S. Dariaus ir S. Girėno stadionas (Kaunas). Both teams are expected to field their best players and put on an exciting show.

Gibraltar’s UEFA Nations League journey has been fascinating, and their successful journey began in 2018. They first competed in European competition in 2014 and were drawn in Group D at UEFA Euro 2016. They qualified alongside Germany, Poland, Georgia, the Republic of Ireland, and Scotland. They eventually recorded their first win under UEFA in June 2014 against Malta with a score of 1–0. In the inaugural edition, Gibraltar secured road triumphs in Armenia and at home against Liechtenstein, setting the stage for a triumphant campaign in 2020. During this period of the campaign, Gibraltar won their league in Group D, went unbeaten, and earned a well-deserved promotion to League C. Unfortunately, the COVID pandemic has left Gibraltar’s C League campaign unfinished, and they are now set to take on Lithuania. Despite many challenges, they fought harder and showed their full potential, so this upcoming game will be a real test of their ability to secure a league position.

Lithuania’s journey in the League of Nations has been a mixed bag of emotions, though it has faced many ups and downs. While they produced a phenomenal moment, they also struggled to find consistency in the game. Lithuania has never yet qualified for the FIFA World Cup or the UEFA European Championship but has participated in the Baltic Cup, a regional tournament held every two years between Lithuania and their Baltic rivals, Latvia and Estonia. This match against Gibraltar will be a crucial opportunity for them to prove their worth and avoid relegation.
