Is that route back Yerevan - Vilnius , Vilnius - Stansted , Stansted - Shannon? Price is very tempting but 00.05 flight to Vilnius very tight if game kicks off at 9pm local time. 
I think it's an 8pm ko local time but even then you would never make that midnight flight - when you factor in the time it takes to get from the stadium back to the hotel in town to collect your belongings and then get to the airport and then through security, passport control etc. I'd forget about that itinerary if I were you tbh.

Game kicks off at 8.00, finished 9.45-10.00, google maps says 27 minute walk from stadium to hotel I’m in so would be doable in 15, 15 minute drive from there, latest I see myself being in airport is 11.00 which should be enough time to get through security there, but I will look more into it before booking anything and wait and see if any other routes pop up. 

Really tight with holidays for this one which is the only reason I’m looking into it, would be back wfh for a half day on the Wednesday. Also Wizz air could easily change the time and date of that route, although they already have once.

Was there just before the pandemic, got to the terminal an hour beforehand and was okay. Make sure you get dropped at the right terminal, we weren't and had to wait for a bus.

It would have been ideal if the Armenia & Ukraine games were consecutive 3/4 days apart as it's taking an awful chunk of annual leave Unhappy

I'm considering flying back on the Wednesday to save two days and work them but I think it's way way too tight to be flying home 2/3 hours after the game has ended. There's no comfort in that and it's a fair distance away too. 

Anyone working Monday-Friday really needs to take at least 3 days off for this match. 
That's how you fight loneliness,
You laugh at every joke,
Drag your blanket blindly,
Fill your heart with smoke,

Six months notice , Scotland the other away,  not ideal  especially with the schedule but  6 days AL to cover both games not the end of the world .

The Monday of this week is a bank holiday so that'll save a day of annual leave
