Tuesday's World Cup qualifying match between Switzerland (11 points) and Lithuania (3 points) looks like a mismatch but holds importance for a Swiss team looking to move up the Group C standings.
Switzerland enters Tuesday three points behind first-place Italy in the group. A win would move the team into a tie in points with Italy heading into the Nov. 12 matchup between the top contenders.

Switzerland has already beaten Lithuania once, a 1-0 victory back in March. Xherdan Shaqiri scored the only goal of that match.
Two of the Swiss team's last three games ended in draws.
Lithuania has one win and five losses through its six qualifying matches.
That one victory came against Bulgaria on Saturday, as Lithuania exploded for three goals. The team had scored just one goal in the tournament coming into Saturday's game, but two late goals by Fedor Cernych turned a close 1–1 battle into a 3–1 victory, giving Lithuania its first three points.
