Alashkert hosts Sheriff Tiraspol in the first leg of the Champions League qualification quarterfinals. The match will be played on Tuesday, July 20th at Vazgen Sargsyan Republican Stadium (Yerevan)
Alashkert began to participate in European cups not so long ago, namely, in 2015. But there is already a definite tendency: only once did the Yellows immediately lose to the very first opponent. But it was a seasoned Celtic from Glasgow. But having dropped to the Europa League qualification, the Armenians eliminated Sutjeska and lost only to CFR Cluj. So, it shouldn't be surprising that the club from the Caucasus knocked out Connah’s Quay. It was only at home that the Welsh were able to achieve a relatively acceptable result — they snatched a 2-2 draw thanks to a goal in the 79th minute. According to the old rules, a goalless draw in regulation time would have been enough for Alashkert. But according to the new rules, the Yellows had to play in extra time after a 0-0 draw. And Bezkur scored the decisive goal in the 112th minute.

Sheriff Tiraspol played in European cups much earlier than Alashkert experienced its re-creation. Now the hegemon of Moldavian football has habitually calmly overcome the 1st opponent in the Champions League qualification, Albanian Teuta. In fact, everything was decided in Albania on July 7th. Moreover, the guests from Tiraspol led 2-0 after Luvannor's double before halftime, and then they could simply press on a clearly weaker opponent. As a result, Yuriy Vernidub's charges stopped only when the score was 0-4. They were much calmer at home. Adam Traore opened the scoring after Thill's pass in the sixth minute. And the Wasps could score more but limited themselves to a modest 1-0 victory.
Alashkert was founded in the 90s, and in fact, in 2011. This start was only 7th for the Yellows in European competitions, so it is not surprising that they had not met with Sheriff Tiraspol before. Alashkert is not bad, but still Sheriff is stronger and more experienced. It is quite capable of achieving success already in Yerevan. We will bet on a clear victory of the visitors.
Prediction for the match: Sheriff Tiraspol to win
