Armenia vs. Cyprus to launch today


The Armenian national football team will play a friendly match with the national team of Cyprus today at the Republican Stadium in Yerevan. This is the second meeting of the strongest players of the two countries in the Ararat valley. For the first time, the Cypriot team was hosted 23 years ago in Yerevan on October 8, 1994, within the Euro-96 qualifying round. The game ended with a draw (0:0). Four times teams met by the Mediterranean coast. The Cypriot players have definitely won all these games. So, the Cypriot team is one of those teams that the Armenian team has not been able to win. It should be noted that three days ago the Cypriot players had a friendly game with Georgia and lost with 0:1. On the contrary, our compatriots won the national team of Belarus (4:1) in a similar match, four days ago, in their own field. Not surprisingly, bookmakers consider the Armenian team as a favorite one, though it is behind the Cyprus team in the FIFA rankings. Our victory was estimated at 1.90, and the Cypriots - 4.00. Armenia vs. Cyprus friendly game will launch at 18:00. According to the official website of the Football Federation of Armenia, tickets for the meeting are only available at the ticket offices of the Republican Stadium.
