The hosts have had mixed results in their quest for World Cup. Albania were on the cusp of clinching a playoff spot before losing two of their last three games to finish in third place.
They endured a more difficult run in the UEFA Nations League, going winless in four games. Albania lost 3-1 to Italy in a friendly earlier this week and will look to return to winning ways this weekend.
Armenia, meanwhile, will also miss the World Cup finals in Qatar later this month after a largely underwhelming qualification campaign, where they won just 12 points from an maximum of 30. They faced Kosovo in a friendly on Wednesday, playing out a 2-2 draw, via goals from Zhirayr Shagoyan and Kamo Hovhannisyan.
Saturday's game will mark Armenia's final game of 2022, so they will look to close out the year on a positive note.
