Sports Innovation previews the World Cup qualifier between Armenia and Germany and offers team stats and betting tips with the latest odds.
Germany visit Armenia on Sunday night hoping to wrap up a near-flawless World Cup qualifying campaign in perfect fashion.
Die Mannschaft have already secured automatic qualification for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. They have a nine-point lead over North Macedonia at the top of the Group J table with one game to spare.
Armenia, meanwhile, have a slim chance of snatching second place from North Macedonia for a playoff spot. The Mountaineers are currently fourth in the standings on 12 points. Given the three-point gap to second, on top of an inferior goal difference, they need a huge win to stand any chance.

Current form — Armenia vs Germany
The Mountaineers on a dismal run of form
Armenia will enter the match hoping to finally end their dismal run of form in recent matches. Only a single point prevents Joaquín Caparrós’ side from having nothing to show for their previous 3 games. They claimed a 1-1 draw against Iceland, before getting trounced 1-0 against Romania. Last time out, more disappointment followed as Macedonia ran out 5-0 winners.
Die Mannschaft look tough to beat
Germany are proving a right handful for most opponents right now, displaying a record of 6 wins from their last 6 matches. In their previous 3 outings, Hansi Flick’s side beat Romania 2-1 before thrashing North Macedonia 4-0. They demolished Liechtenstein 9-0 last time out.

Current table in the World Cup
Looking at the goalscorer market, it would seem a good idea to side with Timo Werner. He is one of the German players, who is showing decent form on the international stage. He managed to find the back of the net 5 times in his most recent outings. Surely, he will want to add more goals against Armenia.
The hosts will be looking to their main man Henrikh Mkhitaryan to find the net once again in what is a must-win match.
