Ararat – Shkendija

Welcome to our free soccer betting tips for today! Today we will offer you a preview of the Conference League qualifying game between Ararat and Shkendija in the Armenian capital Yerevan. Stay with us!

 

North Macedonia’s Shkendija are already close to the second round after a solid 2-0 win in the first leg. The game in Skopje was dominated by the home side. Shkendija scored both goals in the first half when Adenis Shala and Valjmir Nafiu put the ball behind the goalkeeper Artem Potapov. The head coach Artim Shakiri had all the reasons to be happy with his team’s performance.

 

Most likely Shakiri won’t make many changes in his line-up for the second leg. You don’t fix what’s already working, right? Some players could eventually find a place in the starting eleven, though. The young midfielder Reshat Ramadani is an interesting option for the midfield while Vlatko Stojanovski could help the team in attack. The most important thing for Shkendija will be to keep a clean sheet in the first third of the game. It will become easier after that.

 

Ararat have nothing to lose here. The Armenians must switch to more attacking stance because they are already two goals behind. It’s going to be risky, but they don’t have a choice here – with a safe approach it’d be almost impossible to progress.

 

Ararat need their best players to step up in the second leg. One of them is the Argentine midfielder Ivan Diaz who was replaced in the first game. He’s experienced enough to lead the team to a win, but this time he must play better compared to a week ago. The Armenians need players like Diaz to show their best qualities.
