Armenia Vs Republic of Ireland Tips and Prediction
The Republic of Ireland has now lost only once in 12 matches, with that sole setback coming in the last seconds of a contest against Portugal on foreign soil.
The finest result for Kenny’s team was a 3-0 triumph in Azerbaijan, but the recent home draws with Portugal and Belgium will provide plenty of hope.
Ukraine and Scotland will be favorites to win this group, but Republic of Ireland’s status as underdogs against opponents who aren’t far behind them should suit them nicely.
In their past six games, they’ve kept five clean sheets, with the single goal coming in a tie with Belgium in March.
Armenia is competing at this level for the first time, having been promoted throughout the first two Nations League campaigns.
They won a group that included North Macedonia, a Euro 2020 qualifier.ast time, he also advanced to the second tier after scoring 11 points in six games.
However, the highs associated with that success have all but vanished. Joaquin Caparros’ team has only won one of their past 11 games, losing six times in the process.
On a more positive note, a 1-0 win over Montenegro in March was followed by a 9-0 hammering in Norway five days later, giving them 18 goals conceded in four matches.
Since qualifying for Euro 2012, these two nations have not met, with the Republic of Ireland winning 2-1 in Dublin.
Despite the fact that the Republic of Ireland are the favorites to win at the weekend, we can’t help but believe that the visitors will not have it easy. Nonetheless, the Boys In Green may have the confidence to win a difficult game in the final stages after a long undefeated streak.
