Andorra bid to break Armenian duck

Andorra are on a six-game losing streak against Armenia as they look to avoid defeat in Yerevan for the first time in the battle of the lowest-seeded sides in UEFA EURO 2012 Group B.

The bottom seeded teams in UEFA EURO 2012 qualifying Group B are no strangers after six previous meetings, and hosts Armenia seemingly hold all the cards ahead of encounter number seven with Andorra.

Match background
• Armenia's record in six games against Andorra reads W5 D1 L0 (W2 D0 L0 at home).

• The nations first made their introductions in UEFA EURO 2000 qualifying on 5 September 1998, when Armenia prevailed 3-1 in Yerevan. They then triumphed 3-0 on their travels the following October.

• Near identical results were produced when the sides crossed paths in 2006 FIFA World Cup qualifying. Once again, Andorra lost 3-0 at home – on 12 October 2005, five years to the day before their upcoming encounter – but this time their margin of defeat in Yerevan was 2-1.

• The nations last came together for a friendly in Andorra on 7 February 2007, when a 0-0 draw ended a run of five straight defeats for the hosts in games between the two sides.
