Will either side conclude 2022 with a friendly victory in Tirana?
Albania took on European champions Italy on Wednesday night and, despite taking the lead through Ardian Ismajli, were beaten 3-1.
This means Edoardo Reja’s team are still winless this year, mustering five draws and suffering five loses.
Will that fact change here?
Armenia meantime played out an entertaining 2-2 draw with Kosovo in mid-week.
Zhirayr Shaghoyan and Kamo Hovhannisyan on target in Pristina.
This was Roman Berezovsky’s first match in interim charge; Joaquín Caparrós left his post, following Armenia’s Nations League relegation in September.
So, who’s long wait for a win will come to an end at Arena Kombëtare?
