Match Preview

With three teams separated by just two points and jostling for one spot in European Championship qualifying (ECQ) Group J, Finland will be especially keen to keep their unbeaten H2H record against Armenia intact (W4, D1). Furthermore, the hosts need a morale boost after consecutive ECQ losses that ended a four-match winning run.
Finland’s 2-1 loss to Italy in their previous ECQ home fixture continued a trend that has seen Finland struggle to score before half-time – they’ve now netted just one first-half goal across their last ten ECQ home fixtures.
Scoring first will be a top priority for the Finns, considering their last eight ECQ home results (win/loss) saw the winner on the day score the opening goal. That has also been the case in five of Armenia’s six ECQ results (win/loss) this campaign. Tellingly, two-thirds of the ECQ goals Armenia have conceded this campaign have arrived after half-time (eight of 12), with seven coming beyond the hour mark.
With just one loss in their last five ECQ fixtures (W3, D1, L1), Armenia seem to have made up for a poor start (L2). The visitors have picked up four points from their last two ECQ road trips, but those remain Armenia’s only points in eight ECQ away matches (W1, D1, L6). Furthermore, they haven’t scored a H2H goal since October 2004 and in four of five previous H2Hs.
Players to watchTeemu Pukki has been Finland’s first goalscorer in each of the four ECQs that he’s netted in. Meanwhile, Tigran Barseghyan has been Armenia’s final goalscorer in each of the three ECQs that he’s got on the scoresheet.
Stat attack: There’s been four penalties across Finland’s last three ECQ matches.
Six of Armenia’s last seven ECQ away results (win/loss) have come via a single-goal margin.
Four of Armenia’s last six ECQ away losses have seen a 2-1 scoreline.
