One of the long-awaited matches of the championship will take place in the 9th round of the Vbet Armenian Premier League. Ararat will play away with Ararat-Armenia,․ The central match of the tour will take place on October 17th at the Avan Football Academy and will start at 16:00.
Ararat-Armenia is still invincible this season. 7 games and one draw, and Gunko's team with 22 points single-handedly leads. Ararat with its bright performance continues to pursue Ararat-Armenia and with 18 points is in second place. Of course, it's too early to talk about the championship, but tomorrow's meeting can provide answers to many questions.
DEBLE WILL BE ABSENT
Vardan Bichakhchyan's team has serious losses in this match. One of the top scorers of the team and the championship, Serges Deble, will not take part in the match due to disqualification. Deble's absence in the last matches made itself felt and the gap in the match with Ararat-Armenia will try to make up for Yacouba Silue, who has already scored 6 goals in the championship.
Ararat-Armenia has a rather long bench and can, by rotating the squad, achieve a positive result in their games.
CONFRONTING THE PAST SEASON
In the 2020/21 season, the teams met 5 times in the domestic championship and the VBET Armenia Cup. Bichakhchyan's charges won two games, two matches ended in a draw, and one game was won by the Ararat-Armenia . In the VBET Armenian Cup the teams met in the semifinals, where Ararat won with a total score of 3:2 and reached the final. Ararat won one game of the championship thanks to Pobulic's goal, and in the other two games the teams did not determine the winner.
