Liechtenstein vs Armenia
Date: Saturday, 12 October 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Rheinpark Stadion (Vaduz).
Armenia is in desperate need of points, and this match-day, despite the away handicap, the players should rally and post the much-needed three points on the board. The chances for this to happen to magnify when it’s noted that the opponents are Liechtenstein, the whipping boys of the group.
Liechtenstein vs Armenia Head-to-head (h2h)
Henrikh Mkhitaryan and his boys hold a 100% unbeaten record against this opponent.

‘The Collective team’ has scored twice or more in every single tie so far.
Both teams found the back of the net in both the fixtures in the UEFA Nations League.
The only tie on Liechtenstein soil ended in a 2-2 draw.
Liechtenstein vs Armenia Prediction
Michele Polverino and his boys are placed bottom-most in the group and have lost every one of their ties bar one. In fact, the only fixture where they avoided a defeat was the match against Greece, which is, as common knowledge, the next-worst of the lot.
Adding insult to injury, Helgi Kolviosson’s men have so far managed a single goal from their six fixtures. And this had come in the game against Greece. Moreover, they have conceded an embarrassing 19 goals in the process and are yet to find the back of the net in front of their home crowd.
In addition, this will be the second time these two are lining up against each other. The first ended in a loss for Polverino and his cavalry, and they conceded two goals right away within 20 minutes of the fixture. Later, the Armenians, who had played the hosts, chipped in one more to end the game 3-0.
Going on, Mkhitaryan and his team are placed third in the table, trailing by three points behind Finland, who occupy the second and final qualification spot. With just four more match-days to go, they need all the points they can manage, and in that regards a win is mandatory this weekend.
The fact that they hold an unbeaten record against this opponent will surely help, and so will the form of the hosts, which has been dismal at best.
Consequentially, count on the guests to come out on top this Saturday.
