Gibraltar vs Armenia
UEFA Nations League
Date: Friday, 16 November 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Victoria Stadium (Gibraltar).
Gibraltar enjoyed a sensational October as they picked up their maiden victories in official UEFA competitions. The very inaugural win came just against Armenia on October 13th away in Yerevan. It was Joseph-Luis Chipolina who made no mistake from the spot five minutes after the interval to make the difference between the two teams.
Such result was a massive upset. However, Gibraltarians did not stop there as they went on to pick up the second victory ever just three days after when they saw off Liechtenstein. George Cabrera and Joseph-Luis Chipolina bagged second-half goals in what was a comeback victory for Gibraltar. Believe it or not, Julio Cesar Ribas’ men now even have a chance to top the Group 4 and get just two games away from snatching a spot at European Championship. Can they take the Armenia scalp for the second time in just two months?
Gibraltar vs Armenia: Head-to-head
This will only be the second ever head to head clash between the two teams.
As described above, Gibraltar shockingly picked up a 0-1 victory a month ago when teams met in Yerevan.
Gibraltar vs Armenia: Prediction
To make the entire group even more complicated, Armenia bounced back after the mentioned loss with a demolishing 4-0 victory over until-then impeccable Macedonians just days after. Arsenal’s star Henrikh Mkhitaryan was the dominant figure on the pitch back then as he delivered two assists and a goal in the thumping of Macedonia.
Mkhitaryan should be in the starting line-up here against Gibraltar as Armenians are looking for a win which would help them keep ground on Macedonians before the last round matches. The visitors will definitely enter this game with an improved confidence after such a high-margin victory over group leaders and we have to see them as clear favourites to get their revenge against the likes of Gibraltar.
You can back Armenia to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end at the odds of 1.66 here.
