Armenia hosts Greece in the capital Yerevan in a match from Group J
Armenia hosts Greece in the capital Yerevan in a match from Group J of the European qualifying campaign. Let’s see what’s the situation with these two teams in our soccer matches tomorrow.
Armenia are currently third in the group with 10 points, but 5 points behind the second Finland and with very thin chances of actually finishing ahead of the Scandinavians. In 8 matches so far, the Armenians have a record 3 wins, 1 draw and 4 losses. In the previous round they had a chance to overtake Finland at second place, but they suffered a heavy 0-3 loss against the Eagle-owls.
The manager Armen Gyulbugadhyants put his best team on the pitch at the Veritas Stadion, but it was not a successful effort by the Armenian team. Finland dominated all over the pitch and won the game with a goal from Fredrik Jensen and a brace from Teemu Pukki.
What Armenia can do now is to try keeping the third place. They have the same amount of points as the 4th Bosnia-Herzegovina, so this is going to be a close fight.
For Greece this qualifying campaign is one big dissapointment. The 2004 European champions are currently 5th in the group with just 8 points, although if they win on Friday, theoretically they can even climb up to second place.
In 8 matches played so far, Greece have won just twice. One of this wins came in the previous round, when Johannes van’t Schip’s team hosted Bosnia-Herzegovina in Athens and celebrated a 2-1 win. Vangelis Pavlidis opened the score for the Greeks, but Amer Gojak equalised for Bosnia. Greece managed to win the game thanks to an own goal, scored by Bosnia’s Adnan Kovacevic.
That’s our soccer matches tomorrow for the European qualifier between Armenia nad Greece on Friday. We wish you good luck, friends.
