Best prediction football for Finland vs Armenia
Finland hosts Armenia in the Group J round of EC Qualification. The match will be played on Tuesday, October 15 from 17:00 UK at Veritas Stadion.
Finland ranks second in the 12-point group but only 2 ahead of Armenia and Bosnia-Herzegovina, with the runner-up to last. In their first game, they lost to the favorite Italy 2-0, but then recorded 4 consecutive wins in which they did not allow a single goal in their neck against Armenia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Liechtenstein and Greece, scoring 7 goals in the listed matches. They then accepted into their Italy stadium and lost for the second time both in qualifying and this opponent. On Saturday, they visited Bosnia-Herzegovina, which is their direct contender for second place and in the draw or even victory would break away, but Finland lost 4-1 in Zenica as the hosts led 4-0, although they played without their big star Edin Džeko who was injured but that prevented them from scoring with two points scored by Miralem Pjanić and one by one added by Izet Hajrović and Armin Hodžić. The guest of honor was the work of Bayer Leverkusen football player – Joel Pohjanpalo.
Armenia are in third place in the 10-point standings and in the event of a victory will outpace their rival in the standings. The team led by Armen Gyulbudaghyants started with two qualifying losses from Bosnia-Herzegovina and Finland but then beat Liechtenstein 3-0 and 2-3 Greece. In September they home to Italy, losing by 3-1, but only a few days later they were able to beat 4-2 Bosnia and Herzegovina as Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored 2 goals. On Saturday, however, they failed to defeat Liechtenstein in a 1-1 draw as Mkhitaryan did not participate in the match due to a concussion and now they are up against the wall to seek a mandatory victory.
Finland will have to seek victory in their Armenia household to prevent Bosnia-Herzegovina from displacing them from second place in the group. Armenia, on the other hand, are also obliged to look for the three points that will allow them to outperform their rivals in the standings. I do not think that they will be able to achieve it without their star Henrikh Mkhitaryan and they are quite hesitant in their away games as they failed to beat even Liechtenstein and for that our best prediction football will be victory for Finland.
