The clash between Armenia and Ukraine kicks off on Saturday at Republican Stadium - Vazgen Sargsyan. This is the fifth round of the UEFA Nations League group stage and things are beginning to heat up.

Ukraine won 3-0 and 4-3 in the two most recent meetings with Armenia, and go into their upcoming match with a psychological advantage.

Home side Armenia enter this next international as number 92 in the FIFA world ranking. With the visitors from Ukraine sitting as number 27, we have a rather big gap between the countries.

Armenia have a hard time getting on the scoreboard these days, as they managed a poorly five goals in their previous ten matches. That is an average of 0.5 goals per game, in which they conceded 29 goals, or 2.9 goals per game. Furthermore, they fought their way to two clean sheets in this run.

Ukraine are currently decent goalscorers, as they managed a bearable 14 goals in the past ten outings for an average of 1.4 goals a game. Their opponents scored a total of nine goals, and while Ukraine claimed three clean sheets, they conceded an average of 0.9 goals per match.

Armenia vs Ukraine Prediction

Armenia endured a tough spell in their previous three matches, which brought three defeats. They lost 2-0 against Scotland, before Ukraine won 3-0, while Scotland claimed all three points in a 1-4 win. Armenia claimed a modest two wins in their past six home matches. They also drew one and lost three, scored five goals and conceded 14.

Ukraine managed to gain four points from their previous three matches, which started with a 3-0 win against Armenia. A 1-1 draw with Ireland followed, before they lost against Scotland by 3-0. Ukraine claimed a remarkable four wins from six away matches in which they drew zero and lost two. They also banged in eight goals, whilst conceding six.

Armenia go into their fifth UEFA Nations League group match on three points. To stay in League B, they need to go all-in chasing a win. A draw keeps them in with a chance of staying up, while defeat will be costly.

Ukraine came through the first set of UEFA Nations League matches with seven points so show off. While not there yet, they still have a good shot at reaching the next stage, but they need a good result this coming Saturday.

Bookmakers have Ukraine down as rather big favourites for the win against Armenia. While the hosts will obviously come out fighting, we still think the visitors will prevail in the end.
