Our prediction for this Nations League match:
Armenia will be looking to bounce back from a shocking 1-0 loss to Gibraltar when they host FYR Macedonia at Vezgen Sargsyan anvan Hanrapetakan Marzadasht. The Armenians are eager to return to winning ways and we predict that they are going to leave their hearts on the field in Tuesday’s football match. Coach Armen Gyulbudaghyants surely feels pressure ahead of the visit of FYR Macedonia, but this game could be the turning point for him and his men. A man to watch in the home team will be Arsenal midfielder Mkhitaryan, who is likely to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders. The Macedonians have been impressive in the UEFA Nations League so far and seeing that they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play, both teams to score bet should be considered in this one.
Highlighted Player (Yura Movsisyan):
Yura Movsisyan is a Real Salt Lake City footballer who plays for Armenian national team as well. Movsisyan was born in Baku, Azerbaijan, but his family moved to the United States while he was a boy and, as a result, he started his youth career at Pasadena Lancers. Following a one year of college soccer, Kansas City Wizards chiefs offered him a professional contract.
The Armenian attacker scored five goals in 28 league appearances for the Wizards and in 2007 he signed for Real Salt Lake City. After spending two seasons at the MLS club, Movsisyan moved to Europe, signing a deal with Danish side Randers. Speaking of his stay in Russia, the Armenia international played for the likes of Krasnodar and Spartak Moscow and he scored no less than 48 goals in the Russian top flight.
In 2017 he returned to Salt Lake City and he is expected to play an important role in Jeff Cassar’s team in the 2017 MLS campaign. Movsisyan made his Armenia debut on August 11, 2010 in a friendly against Iran.
Highlighted Team (Macedonia):
Former Yugoslavian republic Macedonia became member of both FIFA and UEFA in 1994 and they have been competing on the international stage ever since. The Crveni Risovi rolled over Slovenia (4-1) in their first ever official match and the team recorded their biggest win on November 9, 11996, with the team crushing minnows Liechtenstein 11-1 in Eschen-Mauren.
The Macedonians have yet to qualify for the finals of a major tournament despite the fact that several high-profile footballers played for the former Yugoslav republic. Goran Pandev is undisputedly the team’s most notable player as he played for the likes of Lazion, Inter, Napoli and Galatasaray during his professional career.
Pandev scored his 28th and 29th goal for Macedonia in a 3-0 win over Belarus in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers. However, Goce Seldloski is the most capped player (100). Macedonia welcome their rivals at Philip II Arena and they wear red shirts with yellow stripe and red shorts when playing at home ground. The colour of their away kits is white.
