This is a UEFA World Cup qualifying match between Italy and Armenia. Italy has this group all locked up and are in no danger of losing their World Cup trip. Armenia isn’t eliminated yet. If Bulgaria and the Czech Republic game ends in a draw and Denmark lose to Malta who sit at the bottom of the table, Armenia has a chance of qualifying for the World Cup if they win.
It could happen but it is unlikely. All three of those teams are playing for the same berth that Armenia is fighting for, and it’s not even a berth, just a trip to the play-off in November to try and win a berth.
“The chances of advancing from the group were not that great to start with, and now they are virtually impossible,” Armenia goalkeeper Roman Berezovsky said, via ESPN FC. “A miracle needs to take place for us to be able to battle for the play-offs.”
