Armenia v Scotland
Live on Premier Sports
Clarke's on the cusp
Steve Clarke takes his Scotland team to play Armenia as the UEFA Nations League Group B1 rivals face off for the second time in six days.
Morale amongst the Tartan Army is alarming low, with sections calling for the manager to be sacked after humiliating defeats against Ukraine and Ireland. Clarke is standing on the edge, and the manager realised against ROI - if he didn't already know - that you're only as good as your last game.
Armenia's painful double
Armenia enter this home match sitting bottom of the pool with just three points taken from the first nine available. The locals got off the mark with an eye-catching win over Ireland but slumped to defeat in their next two at this level.
That unwanted double began against the Scots at Hampden when played off the park by a determined opponent. The Armenians were last seen losing to Ukraine at home on Saturday, meaning they have conceded five goals in two while failing to find the net.
Enough is enough
Scotland fans head into this match with more questions than answers following a mixed bag of results. The team drew friendlies from winning positions and were beaten at Hampden by Ukraine in the World Cup playoffs, meaning the agonising wait from France 1998 rumbles on.
Since that loss to Ukraine, Scotland have played twice in this competition and taken three points. They beat Armenia 2-0 in Glasgow to get off to the perfect start but were hammered 3-0 by a Republic of Ireland team that went into that match having lost their first two.
Clarke and his picks got everything wrong on Saturday in Dublin, from the selection to the formation, poor performances from key players to others who showed they aren't up to the job. Even three points and a resounding away win won't paper over the cracks.
A must-win game
This isn't a must-win game for Scotland, who are just three points off the top spot, but it is a must-win for Clarke. Even if the SFA aren't ready to pull the rug from under him, the fans are quickly losing faith in the national team boss.
The visitors know they must win by any means necessary, and we're backing Scotland to get the job done at odds of 1.68/13. Armenia to bag their second win in four trades at 6.86/1, while the draw is difficult to ignore at a value 4.1.
Armenia are at home, but they're already struggling for points and goals. They have scored one in their first three outings, which suggests this will be another low-scoring match. Under 2.5 goals is 1.748/11, while over 2.5 is higher at 2.1411/10.
