On Tuesday evening, Armenia and Scotland will face off in the UEFA Nations League, with the two nations occupying the bottom two slots in Group B1.
However, with the teams only three points behind leaders Ukraine and level on points with second-placed Republic of Ireland, this does not tell the whole story.

Armenia vs Scotland Tips and Prediction
When Scotland beat Armenia in the rematch last week, it appeared that Steve Clarke’s side was getting back on track after failing to qualify for the World Cup.
The Tartan Army, on the other hand, were soundly defeated by the Republic of Ireland in Dublin, with the home nation dominating from start to finish to put an end to their own terrible run of results.
The style of the defeat was unexpected, demonstrating how far Scotland has come in recent years, but Clarke faces a difficult task in rallying his side ahead of a long flight to Yerevan. Scotland has won just one of their last five games since finishing 2021 with six consecutive victories, that game being a 2-0 victory over Armenia on June 8.
Clarke will expect his men to put in a similar effort, but they have already seen the group’s minnows surprise them in recent games.
Armenia defeated Republic of Ireland 1-0 in the group opener, boosted by the same humid conditions that will be present on Tuesday.
In the subsequent away double-header, Armenia has allowed five goals in defeats to Scotland and Ukraine while failing to score a single goal.
Nonetheless, Joaquin Caparros will be rooting for his team to inflict further pain on their next opponents, having already defeated Montenegro at home in a friendly earlier this year.
Scotland will be visiting the country for the first time, with last week’s match being the first meeting between the two countries.
Some pundits feel many goals to be scored in this match after several fixtures in a row and the humid temperatures expected in Yerevan. Scotland will be apprehensive of losing a second game in a row, but we believe the Tartan Army will perform well enough to win this match.
