Slovakia ready to strengthen Group B position

Slovakia, surprise 1-0 winners against Russia in their previous outing, can tighten their hold on qualifying Group B by defeating Armenia in what is the countries' first meeting.

With both sides gearing up for their third outings in UEFA EURO 2012 qualifying Group B, Armenia will take on Slovakia for the first time in their history hoping that results between the nations' women's teams are not a bad omen.

Match background
• 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).
