Nauris Bulvitis and Artūrs Zjuzins secured Latvia victory against their neighbours in Marian Pahars's first competitive game as coach.

Defender Nauris Bulvitis headed Latvia in front after a corner, and Artūrs Zjuzins punished a defensive error three minutes before the break. A Deivydas Matulevičius goal soon revived Lithuania's hopes, but Latvia held on for the win and move above their opponents into fourth position in FIFA World Cup qualifying Group G.
