Armenia vs Luxemburg friendly match will kick off today, Feb 5, 10:45 pm, Yerevan time.
Though the match won’t be broadcast in Armenia, it’s a long awaited event for fans. This will be Armenia’s first match against Luxemburg.
Armenia comes 75th in FIFA rankings, with Luxemburg having taken the 148th spot.
The fact enables the bookmakers to deem Armenia favorite in the match. Despite this, both the coaching staff and footballers should focus on trainings for the upcoming match against Czech Republic.
As chief coach Vardan Minasyan earlier noted, 4 players will miss the Czechia match, stressing the need for Armenia to solve the problem of defense midfielder.
Thus, today, on Feb 5, Armenia will hold the first match of 2013, which will determine the country’s spot in the World Cup qualifiers.
