Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Both Ararat-Armenia and Celje will be looking to set up a meeting with Crvena Zvezda in the Europa League playoffs when they face each other at Yerevan Football Academy. The Armenians recorded a thrilling 4-3 win over Fola in round 2, with Sergiy Vakulenko scoring the winner in the extra-time. Ararat are high on confidence ahead of the visit of Celje, but keep in mind that defender Alex Junior misses the game through suspension.
Dusan Kosic’s troops aim to bounce back from the Champions League defeat to Molde, but given their anything but flying start to the new domestic campaign, away win should not be considered. A close encounter is on the cards at Yerevan Football Academy, and we are tempted to put our money on draw. It has to be noted that the two clubs meet for the first time ever in European competitions.
