Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
Get ready for a thrilling encounter as Aris and Ararat-Armenia lock horns in the Conference League qualifier's second leg. The first leg concluded in a tense 1-1 draw, leaving both teams hungry for victory in the upcoming clash. Aris,with the home advantage, will be seeking to capitalize on their fan support and secure a decisive win. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team, but David Moberg Karlsson could sneak into the starting XI.
Ararat-Armenia, on the other hand, having displayed resilience in the first leg, are determined to make a statement and advance to the third qualifying round. With everything to play for, we expect an intense battle on the pitch as these two teams leave no room for error in pursuit of their Conference League dreams. Anyhow, home win should be considered as over the years Aris have turned their Kleanthis Vikelidis Stadium into a real fortress.
Highlighted Player (Gervinho):
Gervais Lombe Yao Kouassi, or Gervinho, is an Ivorian football player born in Anyama, near Abidjan. He started his professional career in the youth team of ASEC Mimosas, where he gained the nickname Gervinho, thanks to the Brazilian coach of the team. After that, the left winger joined Toumodi, a club from the Ivorian Deuxieme Division Zone Four, where he played with Toure brothers for a while. His first European engagement was at KSK Beveren and after two years, the Ivorian international joined Le Mans.
During his spell in MUC 72, Gervinho attracted the attention of many large clubs, but he decided to join LOSC Lille and two years after he received a call from Arsene Wenger, which resulted with him moving to North London. His stay with the Gunners was not as expected, so the player decided to join Roma. During the players’ exodus to China, Gervinho joined Hebei China Fortune in a deal worth €10 Million, but he did not satisfy the demands of the Chinese club, so he went back to Italy, where he plays for Parma.
The left winger, who can also play as a right winger, attacking midfielder and shadow striker, recorded 84 appearances for Ivory Coast, netting 22 goals in the process.
