Armenia vs Liechtenstein
UEFA Nations League
Date: Thursday, 6 September 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: Vazgen Sargsyan anvan Hanrapetakan Marzadasht (Yerevan).
Armenia have struggled to return to the winning ways in 2018 and host Liechtenstein for their first UEFA Nations League clash on Thursday looking for their first win, hoping to kick off the competition in League D Group 4 with three points in front of the home crowd in Yerevan.
Havaqakan have been tough defensively but failed to score goals and netted just one along the way, seeing draws against Estonia, Malta, and Moldova as well as a narrow 0-1 loss to Lithuania along the way. Henrikh Mkhitaryan will be leading the attacking line once again and the Armenians will hope they can outgun the visitors on the day.
Liechtenstein have seen woes of their own and they’ve failed to find the net in 2018 losses to Andorra and Faroe Islands, with a break of almost six months possibly even more worrying for Rene Pauritsch ahead of the tough day at Vazgen Sargsyan anvan Hanrapetakan Marzadasht. They’ve had even more troubles on the road and failed to score on four of their last five trips!
Armenia vs Liechtenstein: Head-to-head
- Interestingly, this is the sides’ first head-to-head encounter ever.
- Armenia come off as heavy favourites with more depth in quality and firepower up front.
- Liechtenstein have struggled to keep it together at the back and this could prove costly in Yerevan as well.
Armenia vs Liechtenstein: Prediction
We do believe Armenia can overcome their woes on Thursday and we do see them bagging a win, as we back them to outclass the rivals and win to Nil at 10/19 (1.54).
We have seen them rock-solid defensively at this ground and the obvious difference between the sides should be seen on the day as well.
However, Armenians will be desperate to impress in the attacking third too and this promises a very motivated outfit going forward, on the wings of Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
We’ll thus also go for a high-scoring contest at Vazgen Sargsyan anvan Hanrapetakan Marzadasht and we’ll back Over 2.5 goals FT at 1/2 (1.50) odd – hoping to see a one-sided matchup!
