Van form and stats

2 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses. That’s the product of Van playing as the away team in the Premier League this season. It's looking increasingly bleak for Van who now has to deal with a four game losing streak. Shirak was the last time a defeat was avoided. Van has lost their two previous away games and are eager to kill a negative trend in its infancy.

Van have been frustrated by their lack of goals lately, as they haven't scored in the league since they found the net 284 minutes ago. G. Kirakosyan was the goal scorer.

Two away games in a row for Van, who will hope to get a better result in this one after losing 0-4 versus Artsakh in the Premier League. Preceding that, the 0-1 home loss versus Ararat.

Van lost the plot completely in their previous game, as mentioned above. They need to recover quickly from that 0-4 beating and focus on this one.

Many goals are not expected from the visiting Van as they have only managed to score 5 times from 6 away games in the league. Van's defence is not exactly unbeatable as they have conceded 9 goals from these trips.

Head 2 Head

The last H2H meeting was Van - Shirak 3-1, played this season.
