Finland vs Armenia Match Preview
Armenia have picked it up and proven themselves a tough nut to crack lately, suffering just a home loss to Italy (1-3) and bagging ten points in five outings since June. However, they travel to Finland without Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who suffered an injury just before the International break, and this will obviously be a huge setback for Armen Gyulbudaghyants.
Indeed, Havaqakan have struggled to outclass Liechtenstein and Tigran Barseghyan’s first-half goal only brought a point as the rivals levelled it with 18 minutes left on the clock. They will now obviously need more if they’re to challenge the 2nd placed rivals but we don’t really feel they have what it takes to snatch the points.
Finland have struggled lately and they’ve conceded six goals in their last two outings, as Italy (1-2) snatched all three points in September and Bosnia-Herzegovina (4-1) outclassed them last week. They will need to recuperate quickly and build on a top 2 spot, as both chasers now sit just two points behind.
We thus expect them very motivated to impress and with the visitors distraught by the circumstances, we feel the popular Huuhkajat will be able to turn a narrow contest their way and secure the all-important points – with just two games left to play and the first final EURO tournament under their noses.
We will thus back Finland to secure the points and we’ll go for them to win by a 1 Goal exactly, which comes at 12/5 with bet365 and looks like a lively longshot. We have seen them scoring and conceding goals lately and we now hope for another such occasion.
With that in mind, we hope for a somewhat unconventional contest and high stakes could now mean goals. We’re backing Over 2.5 Goals FT at 5/4 with Paddy Power and hoping they’ll have to outgun the rivals to bag the points.
