Making their last appearance before heading into this summer’s European Championships, Wales will welcome Albania to Cardiff for a friendly matchup on Saturday evening.

Starting with the hosts, after watching Liverpool defender Nico Williams shown a straight red card in the first-half out in France earlier in the week, Wales really didn’t stand much of a chance against the defending world champions. Suffering a routine 3-0 defeat, there is no doubt that The Dragons will be looking to gain some much-needed momentum this weekend. Opening their European adventure on June 12th, interim boss Robert Page should still find the mood in his camp at a high. Really bouncing back from that defeat against Belgium back in March, The Reds did shock many with their back-to-back 1-0 victories against Mexico and the Czech Republic. More impressive, along with winning each of their last four straight contests in Cardiff, it should also be noted that Saturday’s hosts are unbeaten on home soil since way back in November 2018.

As for the visitors, while Armenia might not have a European adventure to look forward to this summer, The Eagles have largely impressed over the past year. Despite getting hit with a 2-0 defeat against England in what was a plucky display back in March, Edoardo Reja’s side have won five of their last six matchups across all formats. Securing a maiden campaign in League B for next time around after an eye-catching run in last year’s Nations League, Armenia should also be boosted by their recent displays at the back. Recording back-to-back 2-0 and 1-0 wins against San Marino and Andorra on foreign soil, it should also be noted that Saturday’s guests have gone over 650 minutes without conceding an away goal.
