Armenia gave Denmark a hard time in the opening match of the World Cup Qualifiers earlier this September. It was an away fixture and they had ended up losing by a narrow margin. But there are plenty of positives to take from that particular performance and they will be hoping to replicate it when Romania come to visit on Saturday evening.

Romania started their qualifying campaign at home with a 1-1 draw against Montenegro. With all honesty, it was a drab match and none of the teams were able to dominate the proceedings for the greater part of the match. There were only 6 shots on target and both the goals have fallen after the 85th minute.

Armenia vs Romania: Prediction

Romania are certain favourites on paper to win this match. But they will need a much improved team effort when coming against lower ranked teams like Armenia. Their record outside Romania is nothing to write about after having recorded just 1 win from the 5 matches. The win came against one of the lowest ranked European side Faroe Islands, while they drew the remaining 5. Armenia have already shown that they are no pushovers with a disciplined performance against Denmark. If they can better it, Romania will struggle to find a way through.
