Armenia vs Romania: Prediction and Betting Tips
Armenia to maintain their 100% record
It has been a great start for Armenia in their quest for a first-ever World Cup appearance. Joachin Caparros’s side won their first two matches beating Lichtenstein and Iceland taking them to the second spot in Group J on goal-difference from Germany.
The Armenians are on a seven-match unbeaten run as they were promoted to League B of the UEFA Nations League after winning their group in League C. In this international window coach Caparros is missing his star player Henrikh Mkhitarian due to an injury with Roma.
In their last match against Iceland, Armenia had the lesser share of ball possession with 43% but could hold off the Icelanders from scoring with some good defense and record their second clean sheet in a row in these qualifiers.
Romania to battle for the second spot
Winning their opening match against North Macedonia followed by a narrow 1-0 defeat by four-time world champions Germany, Roumania travel to Yerevan with the aim of stealing the three points in their battle for the second spot of Group J.
In the last World Cup qualifiers for Russia 2018, Romania had one win away from home in their five matches and that was against Armenia 5-0. Can they repeat the feat? Armenia are a stronger side under Spaniard Caparros though.
Romania were outplayed by Germany in their last match. That was the 13th time in the last 14 matches that the Romanians failed to record a clean sheet.
- Armenia have not lost in their last four home matches
- Armenia have scored in all of their last four home matches
- Romania have won one of their last four matches
- Romania have scored in three of their last four away matches
Armenia vs Romania Prediction
Even though Armenia are in very good form but Romania are clear favorites to win with the bookies due to their better ranking on the FIFA world ranking chart as they are 37th and Armenia 99th. We think the Armenians will give their opponents a tough time though.
After going through their latest results and stats we can see that Armenia have been playing very well and have no problem beating teams ranked higher than them like Iceland who are 46th.
Looking at Armenia’s form we will back double chance home win or draw for this match.
