Armenia vs Kazakhstan Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

The bottom two sides of the World Cup qualifying group E will be facing each other on Sunday evening, as Armenia welcome Kazakhstan at the Vazgen Sargsyan Stadium. Armenia fought back from two-goal down to secure an impressive 3-2 home victory over Montenegro last time out thanks to goals from Artak Grigoryan, Varazdat Haroyan and Gevorg Ghazaryan. On the contrary, Kazakhstan were thrashed 4-1 by Denmark, although Gafurzhan Suyumbayev levelled the game at 1-1 in the first half. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Although they have only won one of their last eight home fixtures across all competitions, Armenia still have a better squad than Kazakhstan. In addition, Armenia have won their last two home meetings with Kazakhstan across all competitions, keeping a clean sheet in both of these. I’m backing Armenia to win, but I’m also expecting a low-scoring game. 

Armenia to win at 17/20

Both teams to score - No at 7/10

Armenia Preview

Armenia come into this tie on a high after they managed a superb comeback from two goals down to secure a 3-2 home win over Montenegro in their most recent fixture of their World Cup qualifying campaign. This was their first win in this qualification process, as prior to that they suffered defeats at the hands of Denmark, Romania and Poland. Armenia currently sit in 5th spot in the group E table with just three points under their belts after four rounds, already four points off the 2nd-placed Montenegro. Armenia’s main issue throughout this qualifying campaign has been their sloppy defence as they hold the second worst defensive record in the group, conceding 10 goals in four rounds. Actually, they have conceded at least two goals in three of their four qualifiers so far. On home soil, Armenia were on a seven-game winless streak across all competitions prior to their 3-2 win over Montenegro in their most recent home fixture. The most worrying fact is that Armenia have failed to score in five of their six home fixtures in all competitions prior to their triumph over Montenegro. The good news is that Armenia have won their last two home meetings with Kazakhstan, keeping a clean sheet in each of these.

Kazakhstan Preview

Kazakhstan, on the flip side, are the worst team in group E at the moment, as they failed to win any of their opening four qualifiers. They managed some impressive draws against Poland and Romania, but suffered two heavy defeats in Montenegro and Denmark. The Kazakhs are rock bottom of the group E table with just two points to their name after four rounds, one point off their Sunday’s opponents. Kazakhstan looked poor at both ends of the field throughout this World Cup qualifying campaign, having scored just three goals while conceding 11 in the process. Their topscorer is Sergey Khizhnichenko with just two goals under his belt after four group appearances. Away from home, Kazakhstan were on a five-game unbeaten streak across all competitions between September 2015 to June 2016. However, they are now on a three-game losing streak in all competitions on the road, conceding eleven goals in the process. Head-to-head, Kazakhstan are winless in two meetings with Armenia since a 0-1 away win back in November 2007 in a European qualifier. Kazakhstan have a squad made up entirely of players playing in their domestic championship, and it’s easy to see why they are alway struggling in their qualifying campaigns for any major International tournament.
