Online football bets for Armenia vs Italy
Armenia face Italy in the EC Qualification Round 5. The match will be played on Thursday, 5 September at 17:00 UK by Vazgen Sargsyan anvan Hanrapetakan Marzadasht.
Armenia is in third place in the group after having an asset of 6 points after playing the first 4 clashes of the group. They started qualifying with a 2-1 loss to Bosnia and Herzegovina and then a surprising 2-0 home loss to Finland.
In their next household, however, A. Gyulbudaghyants’s team advanced against outsider Liechtenstein by 3:0, and in the fourth round recorded their biggest success so far after winning 3-2 against Greece at Olympiako Stadio Spyros Louis in Athens. The biggest star of the hosts, H. Mkhitaryan, passed on the last day from the transfer window from Arsenal to Roma and is expected to play much more often there.
Italy are the group leader after having 4 wins in their first 4 clashes. The first match was against Finland at Dacia Arena in Udine and was won by 2-0, and three days later at Stadio Ennio Tardini in Parma defeated Liechtenstein by 6-0. The first away game was against Greece as R. Mancini’s team did not face any problems and won by a convincing 3:0. In their last clash of the group Italy fell to Allianz Stadium 1-0 at halftime against Bosnia and Herzegovina after a goal from E. Džeko, but after the break Azzurri came to a complete turn after the hits of L. Insigne and M. Verratti.
Italy are the big favorite in the upcoming match after recording only wins since the start of EC Qualification as the hosts from Armenia, although in a series of 2 consecutive wins have shown that they can be unconvincing to their fans after losing to Finland. The two teams have two matches with each other as Armenia lost at home 3-1 to Italy in 2012 but managed to pull out a 2-2 draw at Stadio San Paolo in Napoli in 2013 as the duels are part of WC Qualification Europe. At the moment, the class gap is huge and I expect a new victory for Italy with at least two goals difference.
