Like Blagoja Milevski, Caparrós faces several problems with his squad. Veteran central defender Hrayr Mkoyan is out with an injury, while suspended through sports court winger Gevorg Ghazaryan is not available, but he missed the September clash as well, back then due to an injury.

Yellow card suspension against Macedonia will serve central defenders Haroyan and Voskanyan, attacking midfielder Spetsyan and forward Adamyan.

Newcomers in the squad are left back Margaryan and winger Grigoryan, both from the domestic league.
