Sports Innovation previews the World Cup Qualifier between Germany and Armenia and offers team stats and betting tips with the latest odds.
Germany welcome Armenia to Stuttgart on Sunday night for a 2022 World Cup qualifier in Group J.
Life under Hansi Flick began with a solid 2-0 win over Liechtenstein for Germany last week. The result moved Die Mannschaft up to second place in Group J on nine points from four games. Another victory on Sunday will see them go top of the table, at Armenia’s expense.
A goalless draw at North Macedonia last week ended Armenia’s 100% record in Group J. While still on top of the table, Joaquin Caparros’ side must avoid defeat in Stuttgart to preserve their automatic World Cup qualification spot.
Let’s have a look at the form of both sides and the stats from their previous encounters to come up with a reasonable betting prediction.
