Armenia – Ireland Match Preview
- Armenia may have failed to qualify for the Qatar World Cup but they have been one of the success stories of the UEFA Nations League (UNL), gaining promotion from League D to League B over the last two campaigns. FIFA’s 92nd ranked team boast an impressive home record in the competition too, having only lost once here in the UNL proper (W4, D1).
- However, with four defeats in their previous five outings (W1), including a 9-0 hammering to Norway last time out, there are clearly chinks in the armour and opponents Ireland may look to exploit an Armenian defence that have suffered a whopping aggregate scoreline of 19-2 during that time!
- Ireland will arrive in Yerevan guarding an eight-match unbeaten run (W4, D4) but they also missed out on a World Cup spot and surprisingly have never won a game in the UNL (D5, L5). However, the recent outlook has been extremely bright, a sentiment backed up by Irish player Enda Stevens who recently told the media that “it’s all positive” when asked about manager Stephen Kenny’s impact on the side.
- The Boys in Green have now lost just once across their previous 12 outings and perhaps more impressively, they’ve shown a stern resilience by keeping five clean sheets from their last six games whilst also holding Belgium, FIFA’s #2 ranked side, to a deserved 2-2 draw. Considering that sparkling form and the fact they’ve also won both previous H2Hs between the sides, it might be brave to bet against the green corner here.
- Players to watch: Tigran Barseghyan is the top scorer in Armenia’s match squad and if he scores a ninth international goal here it could be a good sign – his nation have won five of his seven goalscoring caps. Meanwhile, Ireland striker Callum Robinson has been in fine international form with four goals from his side’s previous five games.
- Hot stat: Ireland have avoided defeat in each of the last four occasions that they conceded first (W1, D3).
