Vardan Minasyan’s men have not found the net in all their previous four games and it could continue that way when they meet Ray Farrugia side

Armenia trade tackles with Malta in a friendly contest at Gernot Langes Stadion on Tuesday evening.

Having failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, Vardan Minasyan’s men will be looking to put themselves in shape ahead of the Uefa Nations League starting in September.

Their last two tune-up games have left them with little to cheer about as they failed to win on both occasions. However, they will be aiming to banish the not-too-impressive situations by winning the tie and put themselves in good stead for the competition ahead.

Armenia have won all but one of their previous meetings with the Falcons and are hot favourites at (1.40) with Bet365 to come out on top in this encounter.

Both sides cancelling each other out is available at the price of (4.20) with the same betting firm.

Ray Farrugia’s men have lost 13 of their last 15 matches across all competitions. Although, they will be aiming to return to winning ways but will have to upset a huge odds of (9.00) for them to realise their target having been tagged as underdogs here.

Armenia have not tasted defeat in four of their previous five outings with Malta and are (1.075) to avoid defeat once again in this contest.

The last five meetings between both sides has seen a solitary goal scored. Bookies thus offer (1.80) for less than two goals to surface here.

It is worth mentioning that both sides have failed to get on the scoresheet in their previous five meetings and (1.57) is available for a repeat here with Bet365.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
