Armenia aim to close gap in Andorra

Armenia will look to trouble the top sides in UEFA EURO 2012 qualifying Group B as they travel to Andorra, having beaten the back markers comfortably back on 12 October.

• In that first meeting, Gevorg Ghazaryan gave the home side a dream start with a fourth-minute opener and goals from Henrik Mkhitaryan and Yura Movsisyan added to Armenia's tally before the break to put the result beyond doubt. Marcos Pizzelli then struck on 52 minutes to send his side temporarily to the top of their qualifying section.

• Armenia are fourth in the pool, five points adrift of the top three – who are level on 13 points.

• Andorra are one of four teams yet to pick up a point in UEFA EURO 2012 qualifying along with Malta, San Marino and Wales.

• Andorra's seven previous matches against Armenia have ended W0 D1 L6 (W0 D1 L3 at home). The only time they avoided defeat was in a 0-0 friendly draw on 7 February 2007. The aggregate score in games between the nations is 17-2 in Armenia’s favour.
