UEFA Nations League
Date: Tuesday, 16th October 2018
Kick-off at 17.00 UK/ 18.00 CET
Vazgen Sargsyan Republican Stadium, Yerevan.
Armenia hosts Macedonia in this Group D fixture. The hosts have a lot to atone for after losing to a Gibraltar side that came into the match on the back of a 22-match losing streak. Despite the presence of Arsenal player Henrikh Mkhitrayan, they don’t seem to gel as a good team.
Macedonia comes into this match high of confidence. They have won all three matches of theirs in the Nations League. The visitors with nine points out of a possible nine so far, have a commanding lead over the other three teams. One more win in this match and they will all but ensure promotion to League C, as well as be a front-runner for a spot in Euro 2020.
Macedonia is unbeaten in ten matches in a row. They have scored a combined 16 goals in their last five wins. Matches between these teams are always goals fests. Six of their total seven matches have seen over 2.5 goals.
Last time these two teams met, Macedonia won with a scoreline of 2-0. Macedonia is a huge favorite to walk home with at least a point in hand.
