Description: ARM Vs EST Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Without a win in round 1, Group 2’s Armenia and Estonia scour for their first three points
Estonia’s decline in the footballing fraternity just can’t be curbed at the moment. The side’s 1-0 defeat to Georgia in their league opener of the UEFA Nations League 2020-21 now sees the side sit on a four match losing spree.
Its been a howler of a time for the club, one which leaves them without a win since September 2018 and without a goal since September 2019. The club has failed to score in its last six appearances in the footballing fraternity, a languid attack solely responsible for the side’s waning and regressing form.
Their defeat in their League C Group 2 tie sees the side continue to yearn for its first defeat in the showpiece tournament. With one draw and seven defeats the last time around, the side continues to scrounge for its first win when it goes clashing heads with Armenia this Tuesday.
ARM Vs EST Dream11 Probable Winner
Armenia themselves haven’t fared off any better. Defeated 2-1 by North Macedonia the last time around, Armenia have lost each of their last four outings, form which sees the club placed 112 in the world.
However, this should finally be the fixture which sees them snap out of their rut. They have managed to win four of their last eight encounters at home and up against an Estonia side which just can’t score, Armenia should do more than enough to rake in their first win of this edition.

Dream 11 Picks
Karl Hein couldn’t have done any more for Estonia against Georgia. He looked set to salvage atleast a point for the side as he parried away shot after shot to keep his side in the encounter right till the culminating stages.
With Estonia have scored two and conceded 26 across the last year, Armenia will be quietly confident of their chances of a cleansheet today. They are up against a side which hasn’t scored in over a year now, a team which just can’t seem to curb the rot which is engulfing it in the attacking docket.
It sees us opt for the four defenders from Armenia for this one. All of Hovhannes, Andre Calisir, Kamo Hovhannisyan and Varazdat Haroyan will be inducted in our side for the forthcoming clash.
If Estonia are to save face and not be embarrassed once again, the side will need to pull off a resolute and resilient defensive display. And with Armenia having not managed to score over a goal in their last four outings, this can be a clash where Estonia make life a searing pain for Armenia.
At the forefront of the side’s defensive display will be Joonas Tamm. Classified as a midfielder but playing CB for the side, his versatile expertise and knowhow of the game saw him emerge as his side’s finest player against Georgia.
He will find company in Henrik Ojamaa and Mattias Kait, two players who form the foundation of the side’s defensive midfield. The two are names who can clampdown on attacks and leave them barking up the wrong tree with their ability to recover the ball.
While Armenia have traditionally struggled to forage goals but this can easily be the affair where they fill up their shoes. They are up against a side which has been hit for 26 goals, a calamitous defence which sees us opt for the dynamic and diminutive Arshak Koryan and Artak Grigoryan from the home team.
The aforementioned narrative will see the robust Alexander Karapetian wrap up our set of picks for the outing.
Captain And Vice-Captain
With 2 goals in the tournament the last time around, Alexander will be our captain while Hovhannes is the vice-captain.
