Armenia vs Ukraine

Preview

Armenia found themselves in a difficult position ahead of Saturday’s UEFA Nations League Group B1 match against promotion hopeful Ukrainians.

After a crushing (1-4) defeat to Scotland in June, Joaquín Caparros’s side are bottom of the group after four matches and are well placed for their first relegation after successive promotions in 2018/19 and 2020/21.

An uphill battle lies ahead this weekend to bolster their hopes of survival against their favorite rivals, who won (0-3) in the second leg in June.

Armenia have scored the first goal in each of their last six home matches, so there’s always a chance the hosts can put in another bright start and throw them off their opponents.

Ukraine seemingly put an end to their agonizing World Cup play-off defeat to Wales by building a three-match unbeaten start for their second campaign, placing them in the lead of promotion.

However, a (0-3) away loss on Wednesday night to nearest rivals Scotland severely hurt their chances of promotion, with three goals in the last 20 minutes enough for Scotland to jump them into first place with two games to go.

The defeat now makes this match much more meaningful for Alexander Petrakov’s men, who are undefeated in every game they play against Armenia.

Fueling their confidence even more have lost just two of their six competitive matches in 2022 and will support themselves to maintain their impressive form once they return to competitive action.
