Aremenia face Wales in a must-win Group D showdown at Vazgen Sargsyan Republican Stadium in UEFA Euro 2024 Qualifying.
Victory could see Armenia go second for a few hours with Croatia not in action until early-evening, whilst Wales can stay second with a win.
Armenia have no fresh injury concerns to report coming into this match, with a full squad available for selection.
Wales have no fresh injury concerns coming into this game with Ben Davies, Harry Wilson and Daniel James amongst several regulars set to start.
When is Kick-Off?
Armenia host Wales at Vazgen Sargsyan Republican Stadium in a 6pm AMT (2pm UK Time) kick-off live on ViaPlay Sports 1 in the UK.
- Armenia are unbeaten in three previous meetings against Wales in all competitions (W1, D2).
- Wales drew 2-2 in their only previous away visit to Armenia in March 2001.
- Both teams have scored in two of their three previous meetings in all competitions, except for a 0-0 draw in Wales in September 2001
- Armenia are looking to avoid suffering four consecutive defeats for the first time since a five-match streak between June – September 2022.
- Two of Wales’ three away goals in the group have come in second-half injury time.
Although not totally out of contention, Armenia know that this game is now must win after a surprise loss away to Latvia last month so I do expect them to come out and try to control this game, although it is important that they tighten up their leaky defence.
Wales meanwhile have their fate in their own hands in these final two games and having produced a classy performance to beat Croatia last month, these Welsh Dragons need to deliver a similar effort but they will have to be wary of Armenia’s threat on the attack.
Rob Page’s Wales though have Turkey at home in their final game of the group which is a difficult task so it is imperative that they win here to put their destiny in their hands on home soil, which I can see being the case if they can play a clinical game once more.
Prediction: Armenia 1-2 Wales
Result: Armenia 1-1 Wales
