Slovakia out to avoid another Armenia slip-up

• Second-half goals from Gevorg Ghazaryan and Henrik Mkhitaryan secured a superb 3-1 win for Armenia when the sides met in Yerevan on 8 October. Yura Movsisyan had scored the home side's 23rd-minute opener, but Vladimír Weiss equalised before the break.

• That was the countries' first meeting at senior level.

• Armenia and Slovakia's women met in qualifying for the 2005 UEFA European Women's Championship, when Slovakia triumphed 5-0 at home on 9 September 2003 and 10-0 away three days later.

• Men's outfits from the countries have twice contested two-legged UEFA club competition ties, but while both yielded victory for the Slovakian contender, they did not win in Armenia on either occasion. The Armenian teams' record in those four fixtures reads W1 D1 L2 (W1 D1 L0 at home).
