Ararat Armenia vs Saburtalo
Europa League Qualification
Date: Tuesday, 6 August 2019
Kick-off at 16:00 UK / 17:00 CET
Venue: Vazgen Sargsyan Republican Stadium.
Ararat Armenia were consigned to the Europa League following their dismal loss to AIK Stockholm. However, the hosts have bounced back from that upset and have got off to a winning start in their new campaign with a 4-1 aggregate scoreline against Lincoln in the previous round.
Saburtalo made their way into the competition in a similar fashion after they were handed an embarrassing 5-0 defeat over two legs by Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League. The visitors are currently on a three-game losing streak and have been at the receiving end of eight goals while scoring just one in retaliation.
With the less convincing run of form that they are on right now, the away side will have to put in the extra effort if they are to salvage at least a draw, if not the win, against the Ararat Armenia side on Tuesday.

Ararat Armenia vs Saburtalo Prediction
The hosts have not been at the losing end in their last four home games, and have scored eight goals in the process while conceding just twice.
Additionally, Ararat Armenia have admitted defeat just once in their last eight matchups in all competitions. The visitors, on the other hand, have been struggling to keep up a consistent winning charm, and have tasted success on just two occasions in their previous six outings.
Furthermore, Saburtalo’s last trip on the road saw them lose by a 3-0 scoreline. The less than reassuring figures that the visitors have been recording in their recent ties certainly puts Ararat Armenia in the driving seat this week to come out on top.
Three of the last five games for both the hosts and the away side have been high scoring clashes. Although Saburtalo have been poor on the attacking front in their last two trips, you can count on Ararat Armenia to rack up the goals tally alone in this one.
As the hosts have been consistent in scoring two or more goals in three of their previous four fixtures, expect more than 2.5 goals to feature on the scorecards at the end of the ninety minutes.
