Victory for Connah’s Quay
Connah's Quay has been phenomenal in the last ten matches and we think they have what it takes to bag victory at home in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League Qualification fixture. The Welsh team comes into this match with three consecutive victories, two of which were clean sheets. Even though Alashkert has won its last three games, the Armenia team does not seem to score many goals. A home advantage, a great form and the fact that Connah's Quay likes to outscore opponents is why we think the hosts will bag this one.
Over 2.5: Yes
Going by how both teams have performed in recent fixtures, we think this will be a high scoring match. Connah’s Quay comes into this game with three victories, matches in which the Wale’s team scored at least two goals. While Alashkert equally has three victories in the last three games, defensive flops have been their biggest undoing in some matches and will likely concede more goals than the hosts.
Connah’s Quay to score first
The hosts have scored a lot of goals in recent matches and are our favourites to score first in this fixture. Eight goals in the last three matches for the hosts, four more than goals scored by the visitors makes our pick even more plausible.

Which Side Will Get Its Fourth Consecutive Victory?
Both teams have three consecutive victories in the last three matches. It begs the question, which team will keep its resurgent form going? Check our match preview for more.
Connah's Quay head coach, Andy Morrison, has been in charge of the Wales team since November 2015. The Scottish tactician has seen an impressive 213 matches at the helm. He averages 1.94 points per match after 126W, 36D and 51L. Andy Morrison has never managed any other team in his career. Thus, helping Connah's qualify for the Champions League will be a major achievement for the manager.
On the flipside, Alashkert manager, Aleksandr Grigoryan averages 1.46 points per match after being in charge of the Armenian team since May 2021. It would be too early to assume that Aleksandr Grigoryan is the best bet after only three matches in charge, all of which he has won.
