Alashkert vs Makedonija
Europa League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 11 July 2019
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: FFA Academy Stadium (Yerevan).
These days, Alashkert is a typical example of being a one-trick pony – in the sense, severely depending on their home advantage, and going dull on the road. Per their wish, they have the opportunity to host the first leg but will have to figure out a way to make it count, as a leg on the road remains.
The last season, they completely dozed off towards the end, and went through a winless run, or could have laid claim on a Champions League spot.
Counterparts Makedonija too display a similar trend of lighting up their home games but going off balance when the crowd is against them. It needs to be mentioned though, that against overwhelming nature, the team registered an away win the last day, and that too while scoring three goals in the process.
Disregarding all these, it’s certainly admirable that a squad which was plying their trade in the lower division a year back, is vying for a spot in the Europa. Should they wade through this qualification campaign, it’d make to be a great story.

Alashkert vs Makedonija Prediction
Alashkert was unbeaten in seven of their last ten matches and was on really another level at their home. At present, they are on a six-game unbeaten run in front of their home crowd and won four of them as well. Going on, they remained invincible in 14 of their last 17 appearances in front of the home crowd and had a seven-match winning streak along the stretch too.
Impressively, the squad kept ten clean sheets in their last fourteen attempts at home and has let in just a single goal in total from their last six home games.
On the other hand, Makedonija lost five of their last nine games, and three of their last four on the road too. Moreover, they were also winless in six of their last eight road trips, and against a team that has found the back of the net in 17 of their last 20 home games, and in their last six overall, the visitors will expectedly struggle.
Count on the home team to make most of this first leg, and ride their home status to a win.
