Armenia vs Moldova Preview and Predictions

Armenia vs Moldova
International Friendly
Date: Monday, 4th June 2018
Kick-Off at 16:00 UK / 17:00 CET
Venue: Sportplatz Kematen, Kematen

Two neighbouring countries Armenia and Moldova will meet on Monday afternoon at Kematen for a friendly football clash. None of these two sides is under pressure to achieve a good result here after missing the chance to participate in the World Cup. Also, both belong to lower tier teams in Europe, so it is hard to expect super entertaining clash.

It was confirmed that Armenian top star and the current player of Arsenal FC, Henrikh Mkhitaryan will miss this match. Despite that, his team should have better chances to claim victory. Armenia warmed up with a solid performance and draw against Malta a couple of days ago (they had one man sent off). However, it is been a while since their fans celebrated victory on international stage. The last win happened in late 2017 against Cyprus.

As for their opposition, Moldova were supposed to play Congo on last Friday but that match got cancelled without any public explanation. This team is not doing well in the last couple of months, having lost seven out of the last eight international meetings.

Armenia vs Moldova: Head-to-head

There were only three duels played between these two countries in the last two decades. Interestingly, every single one was full of goals, ending with BTTS & Over 2.5.

In terms of victories, the score is tied at 1-1. The average number of goals seen in the previous encounters is 4.00 per duel.

Armenia vs Moldova: Prediction

This team of Moldova is probably one of the worst in the last couple of years. They are awful at defending, while there are more matches in which they failed to score than the opponent. I am backing home victory here combined with a clean sheet.

Under 2.5 is going to serve well if you are after a banker bet for Monday accumulator. If you are playing it as a single, stake should be high. Goals scored in previous h2h meetings are not that relevant (the last one played nine years ago).

Armenia vs Moldova Betting Tips
