THE TEAM NEWS

SHIRAK

  • Shirak will be hoping for an improvement in fortunes as they resume competitive action having lost four of their last five league matches prior to the enforced break.
  • In the last round of matches prior to the postponement of the campaign they were beaten 1-0 by the league leaders Ararat-Armenia. That was the third time in five matches that they failed to register on the scoresheet.
  • Despite that poor run of form, they are still sitting in fourth place in the league table and a win here would see them leapfrog Lori in the standings.

LORI

  • In what is a very competitive league campaign, Lori are four points adrift of the league leaders Ararat-Armenia and only two points ahead of sixth-placed Noah going into this round of matches.
  • They failed to score in their last two league encounters before the disruption of the league season with a 0-0 draw against Arat preceded by a 2-0 defeat against Urartu.
  • Lori’s away form has been a concern this season with only two wins from their last 12 games on the road and they have not managed to score more than once in any of their last 13 Premier League away fixtures.

THE PREDICTION

There isn’t much between these two teams in the league table as they are only separated by a single point, and this promises to be a very tight contest. Prior to the disruption of the season neither were in good goalscoring form and it would not be a shock if this was a low scoring encounter in which they both have to settle for a point each.
