Armenia Team News:

  • Armenia coach Armen Gyulbudaghyants named a strong 30-man squad for the upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers against Italy and Bosnia & Herzegovina.
  • Out of 30 players, 13 play for non-Armenian clubs, led by Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who sealed a loan deal from Arsenal to Italian club AS Roma on the deadline day.
  • With no big-name player missing out due to either injuries or suspension, expect Armen Gyulbudaghyants to name a similar playing 11 to the one which beat Greece 2-3 away in the last euro 2020 qualifier back in March.

Possible INs and OUTs of this game:

  • Aleksandr Karapetyan should continue to lead the attack, having been in good scoring touch of late.
  • But Sargis Adamyan has been called up after starting the season on a good note with TSG Hoffenheim. The 26-year-old will no doubt push for a start.
  • Henrikh Mkhitaryan will start behind the striker, with both Gevorg Ghazaryan and Tigran Barseghyan starting on either wing.

Armenia squad for the two qualifiers:

  • Goalkeepers: Aram Hayrapetyan, Anatoly Ayvazov, Arman Meliksetyan, Arsen Beglaryan
  • Defenders: Taron Voskanyan, Hayk Ishkhanyan, Arman Hovhannisyan, Varazdat Haroyan, Andre Calisir, Hovhannes Hambardzumyan, Kamo Hovhannisyan
  • Midfielders: Armen Hambardzumyan, Petros Avetisyan, Artak Yedigaryan, Karlen Mkrtchyan, Erik Vardanyan, Artak Grigoryan, Rumyan Hovsepyan, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Gevorg Ghazaryan, Edgar Babayan
  • Forwards: Artur Miranyan, Sargis Adamyan, Tigran Barseghyan, Alexander Karapetyan

Armenia Probable XI:

​Hayirapetyan (GK), Hovhannisyan, Calisir, Haroyan, Hambardzumyan, Grigoryan, Mkrtchyan, Mkhitaryan, Barseghyan, Ghazaryan, Adamyan / Karapetyan

Italy FC Team News:

  • The biggest name missing from Italy’s squad is of Giorgio Chiellini‘s. The 35-year-old Juventus captain was named in the squad but had to be left out due to right knee injury he suffered during training. The experienced center-back is expected to miss the next six months of action after undergoing surgery.
  • Roberto Mancini has dropped both Moise Keane and Nicolo Zaniolo from his 26-man squad. Keane has failed to nail down a regular spot in Everton’s starting 11, while Zaniolo has been a hit-and-miss of sorts this season.
  • Cristiano Biraghi, who completed his loan move from Fiorentina to Inter Milan, has been left out as well.
  • In further news, Mattia De Sciglio pulled out of the squad due to a muscular problem, with Mancini naming Danilo D’Ambrosio as his replacement.

Possible ins or outs of this game:

  • With Sciglio out, Danilo D’Ambrosio is set to start at right-back, despite Gianluca Mancini in the squad.
  • Gianluigi Donnarumma returns to the squad after missing the last two fixtures for Italy due to an injury. He will start the match in goal.
  • Emerson’s good start to the season means Mancini will name the Chelsea player at left-back once more.
