Finland will be keen on securing all three points as they host Armenia in a Euro 2020 Group J Qualifier.
Finland is second on the points table while Armenia is at the third spot while being two points away from Finland. With Italy already booking a spot in the Euro 2020 with 21 points on board, the forthcoming fixture becomes all the more interesting.
