The curse of Zilina continues for Slovakia as they lost further ground on Group G leaders Bosnia and Herzegovina despite coming from behind to earn a point against Lithuania.

Slovakia had managed a solitary draw in five previous games at the Štadión pod Dubňom and any hope of breaking the spell dwindled when Darvydas Šernas broke the deadlock against the run of play on 19 minutes. Martin Jakubko restored parity before half-time, though, and the home team piled on the pressure, twice hitting the woodwork, to no avail. The end result was nevertheless as it was when these sides met in Vilnius in September: 1-1.
