Date: Tuesday, 27th June 2017
Kick off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Vazgen Sargsyan anvar Hanrapetakan Marzadasht.
Alashkert and FC Santa Coloma will take on each other in the replay of the opening round in the new season of Champions League qualifications.
It is quite hard to judge the teams’ current form as they have not played a single competitive game in a month since the end of the season in their respective leagues.
The team led by Abraham Khashmanyan defended their title in the top flight of the Armenian football finishing seven points clear ahead of the second-placed Gandzasar.
Mihran Manasyan and Artak Yedigaryan are the team’s main stars who combined the total of 27 goals in 30 league matches.
Alashkert were generally off to a super string finish of the season having notched at least three goals in each of their last four fixtures in Premier League.
FC Santa Coloma
The story is quite similar with FC Santa Coloma who have won their fourth consecutive title in Andorra last year.
They completely dominated the competition and ended the season being ten points adrift of Sant Julia at the second position.
Alashkert vs FC Santa Coloma: Head to head
As we stated in the introduction, the two sides have met each other at the same stage of the competition last year when the Armenians advanced thanks to a 3-0 win on the home patch in the second leg.
The first match in Andorra ended in a goalless draw.
Alashkert vs FC Santa Coloma: Prediction
The gulf in quality must be notable this year as well since Armenian league is much stronger than Andorran.
We expect a similar scenario to the one seen last year and comfortable homes win by three or more goals in the first leg at Vazgen Sargsyan anvar Hanrapetakan Marzadasht.
