Armenia vs Montenegro by Isaiah

Armenia is having very bad start into the new qualifications and with three defeats in first three rounds, the team is already far away from any kind of battle for the first two positions. However, it needs to be said that they also played against rock solid sides and didn't leave that poor image of themselves.

Narrow defeat away to Denmark is nothing to be ashamed of, while they suffered ugly 0:5 loss at home to Romanians, however needs to be said that the Armenians played with a man less since third minute. Finally, in the previous game they played, the team suffered again narrow, 2:1 defeat away in Poland, having a draw result for the most of the time, but still deservedly being defeated in the end since the Polish side dominated the game a lot. Now their morale can only go down after such defeats, but the team needs to react here in order to revert their atmosphere at least.

Defender Gael Andonian (13/0) shouldn't be playing here, but also Hovhannes Hambardzumyan (Vardar), midfielders Aras Ozbiliz (28/4), Karlen Mkrchyan (46/2) and forward Edgar Manucharyan (50/9).

Montenegro, on the other side, could be very satisfied with their start of these qualifications, since the team remains undefeated and with two victories and a draw, currently holds the first position with seven points earned, same number of points as Poland and two more than third placed Romania. Having that in mind, this game comes as a must win situation in order to keep their chances of reaching the World Cup high.

After starting draw away to Romania, which can be described as a positive result for them, Montenegro went on and took victories over Kazakhstan 5:0 at home, but also very important three pointer in a 1:0 victory on the road to Denmark. It was quite a surprise as well, since the Danish side looked like favorites before the game and actually deserved something more out of the match. However, visitors took the lead out of one of their chances they had, in 32nd minute via Beqiraj and stood well in the defense for the rest of the game. Left back Vladimir Volkov (17/0) should be their only real absentee for this one.

Motive, atmosphere and form are completely on the side of Montenegro which is doing fine job under new coach. I rate away victory very likely high here, since the visiting team has more quality as well and the chances of their victory are bigger than 50% in my eyes.

    This is a X all over it. Montenegro deserves to have 3 points not 7. Against Denmark they were completely destroyed but lucky, against Romania they were also inferior and saved a penalty in last minute and even against Kazakhstan despite the 5-0 they were barely any better, Kazakhs actually had more possesion.
    Montenegro has absolutely no creativity, they defend and launch counters. Armenia is even worse in that regard but playing away in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia is never easy. Yerevan is 1km above sea level.
    0-2 goals and Draw

    @ Tole

    Do not make me laugh. Montenegro were better in the 1st half against Romania, Bequiraj missed 1 on 1 situation.
    I won’t comment your stance on Kazahstan game.
    In a match against Denmark they went with a clear purpose do defend and search for a goal from a counter attack..

    They certainly have more options in attack than Armenia and have more quality.. Defense is back at full strength (Marko Basa returns) and they will likely not concede a goal from a team whose best player is Mkhitaryan, who doesn’t even get trash minutes in his club..

  3. Tole says:

    Far more better teams droped points in Armenia than Montengro. Poland which is several times better than Montenegro won 2-1 at home against Armenia in 95th minute even tho Armenia had man less from 30th min + an own goal scored. Against Romania they got red card in 3rd minute…and a penalty for Romania. Against Dennmark they lost only 1-0 (AWAY). The coach of Montengro himself before this game said he is coming here not to LOSE, but if they win, even better.
    So taking into account very strong Montenegro defence, lack of creativity of both teams, their playstyle and tactics, HUGE home advantage (trust me, go try to run 90minutes on an altitude of 1km) the most realistic result here is 0-0.
    If anyone wins it will be due to someones mistake.

    PS Mkhitaryan is currently on transfermarkt almost worth as entire Montenegro squad. ;)

    Strange, i would especially wont count much on Mkhitaryan in this match – pure negativeness seeing his rare play for United, and as mentioned – not much activity this season at all. By the way, such kind of “comparing” one players price vs whole team pricing – i find at least strange one , but only i am very polite person ;)
    So, fully agree with Whoa views on this match.

    sorry;) “…only CAUSE i am very polite person”

    Are u kidding me man?I am from Slovenia and and ve been following MNE for years.Last year,it was really bad team but this year thanks to new coach they played 100%.And,one thing.This is relatively new coach,so u can t expect every game to be by coach s idea.They play by heart,for whole nation and that s some difference some other people dont know

  7. Pana Fan says:

    Do we really compare the Montenegro soccer team with that of Armenia? They are just not comparable in terms of their soccer culture, knowhow and performance. In any given night of course, like with all things in life, anything can happen. But, why take such a risk and spend your hard earned cash here? Best thing in any case from Armenia is Kim Kardashian, … , no their soccer team for sure!!

    Pana Fan, please what are your picks for today??

  11. alex says:

    unfortunately for Armenia.
    It’s quite good weather today 7 C and only 3 km/hour wind
    no weather factor would help Armenia.
    Occasionaly Armenia can show some surprises in away games however until armenia would realize all problems coming from unexperienced coach Yervand Sukiasyan. Who doesnt have international class vision and experience we will make some money on Armenia losses.

  12. Tole says:

    2-2, like taking candy from a baby. Feels even better after putting you all wrong.

  13. gary Hamilton says:

    Armenia fight back to win 3-2, Never saw that coming!!

  14. Tole says:

    LoL 3-2 fck my life :D That was unexpected even for me. Balkan mafia strikes again

  15. Boldyforce says:


    0-2 goals and Draw ? You are sure ;) ? Some strong baby was isnt?

    And generally – i am amazed bout this match and armenian second half

  16. Tole says:

    Those were seperate tips, still I was closer to being correct than majority of you that obviously don’t even watch football or have any clue about some simple things.

  17. Tole says:

    Ofc both Montenegro goals were product of Armenian mistakes not Montenegrin knowledge. 1st one came after GK parried the ball only 3-4 meters away and 2nd after Armenian defender failed to pass the ball back to GK allowing 1v1 for Jovetic. The 3rd goal Montenegro received was from some 20ish meters and I guess that is the payback for all the luck they had in previous matches.
