Alashkert - Sheriff
In the second qualifying round for the Champions League, Alashkert welcomes Sheriff Tiraspol. Alashkert is from Armenia and Sheriff from Moldova and usually, this means that the Armenia side will have a tough time. So far the score is 0-1-7 for the clubs from Moldova, at home and away. Sheriff will, with its experience, be a tough opponent and they are surely worth a lot more. Sheriff has a couple of players worth over a million on marker value and the ones brought in this season look promising. Alashkert has a wide squad but without any notable player in it.
Alashkert had a tough time against Connah`s Quay in round one and they barely went through with an extra-time goal. Sheriff had it much easier against Teuta and they were especially convincing away, wining 4:0. Sheriff has started their league but badly. I think that they will neglect the league at the start and focus on Europe for now.
Sheriff is the favorite in my book and they should deliver.
