Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Ukraine vs Armenia


The Ukrainians passed the selection for the World Championship without defeats, however, 6 out of 8 matches ended in a draw. As a result, the second place, and a chance to break into the world championship through butt matches. Scotland, in the semi-finals, Petrakov's team beat with a score of 3-1, playing great in attack. But the decisive battle against Wales did not work out: the “yellow-blue” struck 24 shots on the opponent’s goal (9 on target), but they failed to score, and on 34 minutes Yarmolenko headed the ball into his own net after Bale’s cross from a set piece (0-1). In the 2022/23 Nations League, Ukraine plays in League B, and started with a 1-0 victory over Ireland . The goal was scored by Tsygankov from a free kick at the very beginning of the second half. Interestingly, Viktor appeared on the field only after the break.


"Highlanders" did a good job qualifying for the World Cup, losing only 4 matches out of 10, and took 4th place. But in the 2020/21 Nations League, they won their group in League C, losing only once in 6 matches. As a result, Armenia holds a new draw of the tournament in League B, starting with an unexpected victory over strong Ireland: 1-0. The goal was scored by 22-year-old Eduard Spertsyan in the 74th minute. In the second round, the “miracle” did not happen anymore: Caparros' wards lost without a chance away to Scotland (0-2), having conceded both goals in the first half.

Game Totals Prediction

Their last face-to-face meeting was back in 2003. The national teams crossed two times in the qualifying rounds for the European Championship and the World Championship (from 1997 to 2003).

The Armenians are playing without their leader, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, while Petrakov is experimenting with the squad, giving almost everyone who fought against Scotland and Ireland a rest in the match against Ireland. We think that in Lodz we will not see many key Ukrainian players, but even without them the team must win an easy victory. The Armenians should not be underestimated, but given their weak attacking game and the Yellow-Blues' strong defense game (more than one goal is not missed in 12 matches in a row), one should not expect a sensation. A good option for a bet would be Ukraine with Handicap (-1.5) for 1.71, you can also take Ukraine's victory + Total Under (4.5) for 1.43.
