Alashkert will welcome Connah’s Quay to the Vezegan Sargsyan Stadium on Wednesday for the second leg of their UEFA Champions League qualifier.
Neither side could be separated in a 2-2 draw in the first leg played last week. George Horan scored a late equalizer for Connah’s Quay after David Khurtsidze’s first-half brace had put Alashkert 2-1 ahead at the break.
That draw left it all to play for in Armenia and both teams will give their all to progress to the second round of the qualifiers.
The winner of this tie will take on either Teuta or Sheriff Tiraspol in the second qualifying round.

Alashkert vs Connah’s Quay Prediction
Connah’s Quay showed great determination to snatch a draw on home soil last week but they will have their work cut out in Armenia. The home side are favorites but will have to perform at an optimum level to get anything against the Welsh champions.
The visitors have nothing to lose and are likely to go all out in attack, so another open and exciting game is expected. However, Alashkert’s superior experience on the continent should see them through.
Prediction: Alashkert 2-1 Connah’s Quay
