Is Republic of Ireland vs Armenia on TV? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch Nations League game

The Republic of Ireland must avoid defeat by Armenia to avoid slipping into the third tier of the Nations League.

Saturday’s defeat by Scotland leaves Stephen Kenny’s side vulnerable and they return to Dublin just a point ahead of their opponents.

Armenia secured an impressive 1-0 win over the Republic of Ireland in their group’s opening game but have struggled ever since, losing their last three Nations League games by at least three goals.

That put Joaquín Caparrós under extreme pressure as Armenian journalists refused to question the veteran Spain coach after the defeat by Ukraine and insisted on his resignation.

Here’s everything you need to know before playing.

When and where is it?

The Republic of Ireland v Armenia game kicks off at 19:45 BST on Tuesday 27 September at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin, Ireland.

How can I view it?

Viewers in the UK can watch the game live on Premier Sports 2, with coverage starting at 19:15 BST.

Team News

Stephen Kenny has almost a full squad to choose from, although midfielder Josh Cullen is suspended after being booked against Scotland. Young centre-back Andrew Omobamidele was forced to withdraw from the squad last week through injury and has stayed on at Norwich. Kenny hinted ahead of the game that he was considering changes but stressed they would not be comprehensive.

It has been 18 months since Armenia won away from home and with Joaquín Caparrós set to step down at the end of the season, choosing a manager might not be easy. A back five was successfully used in the second leg and Caparros could return to the formation that started with a four against Ukraine. Captain Varazdat Haroyan could return after his suspension.

Expected Lineups

Republic of Ireland XI: Bazunu; Collins, Egan, O’Shea; Doherty, Hendrick, Molumby, Ritter, McClean; Parrot, Obafemi

Armenia XI: Yurchenko; Hambardzumyan, Mkoyan, Haroyan, Calisir, Hovhannisyan; Barseghyan, Sperzyan, Grigoryan, Bayramyan; Bichakhchyan.
