Pyunik Yerevan vs Wolves Match Preview
Wolves travel to Yerevan for their 3rd Qualifying Round Europa League clash with a four-match winning streak behind them, after bagging pre-season wins over Newcastle (0-4) and Man City (on penalties after a goalless draw) to bag the Premier League Asia Trophy and beating Crusaders (6-1 on aggregate) in UEL already.
Nuno Espirito Santo will surely enjoy his attacking line rediscovering their fine form, where Raul Jimenez led with a brace at Crusaders. Wolves will now surely be motivated to earn an advantage here and come off as heavy favourites to do just that, regardless of their known struggles to keep it together at the back.
Pyunik Yerevan have a lengthy unbeaten streak of their own and host the clash at Vazgen Sargsyan anvan Hanrapetakan Marzadasht with five games without a loss and just one seen in their last 17 outings, which will surely be a great boost to their confidence on Thursday afternoon.
They’ve edged past Jablonec (2-1) on the back of a home win and Pyunik will surely want a similar upset now, but it feels that coping with the Premier League rivals is much more of a task. Aleksandr Tarkhanov has struggled to find a cure for their woes at the back, though, and conceding eight goals in last eight games in front of their crowd will be more worrying.
We will thus go with the obvious favourites and back Wolves to snatch an advantage in the first leg but we don’t see them doing so without conceding, as we now stick with an Away win and a Yes on Both teams to score – which combines to an enticing 2/1 with bet365.
With that in mind, we’re making a case for a high-scoring contest in Yerevan and going for it with Over 2.5 Goals FT, which looks more like a banker bet at 8/15 with Coral and has seen many big hitters lumping.
