Pyunik welcomes Wolverhampton Wanderers
Pyunik welcomes Wolverhampton Wanderers in a first game from the third round of the Europa League. This match is going to be played in the Armenian capital Yerevan on Thursday. Let’s take a look at it in our winning soccer predictions.
Pyunik began in Europa League in the first round of the qualifiers, achieving success against the Macedonian side Shkupi. In the second round the Armenians faced the Czech team Jablonec and eliminated them. Pyunik won the first game in Yerevan with 2-1, thanks to the goals of Artur Miranyan. The second leg Jablonec and Nisou ended with a 0-0 draw, which sent Pyunik to the third round.
The new season in the Armenian Premier League still have not began, so the team is playing official games only in Europe.
Wolverhampton Wanderers started their campaign in the Europa League qualifiers from the second round. Nuno Santo’s boys faced Northern Ireland’s Crusaders and won both games. A 2-0 win at the Molineux was followed by an impressive 4-1 at the Seaview in Belfast. The Mexican striker Raul Jimenez scored a brace, while Ryan Benneth also put the ball in the net. Crusaders’ Jordan Forsythe scored himself an own goal.
You can be pretty sure that Wolves will aim to reach the Europa League group stage. They did a terrific job in the Premier League last season, qualifying for the European competitions. The Portuguese manager Nuno Santo did an amazing job at the club, so this season he will try to keep this level of performance.
These are our winning soccer predictions for the Europa League qualifier between Pyunik and Wolverhampton Wanderers on Thursday. Surely the Wolves are favourites here, especially given the fact that they are a Premier League side. But let’s see what Pyunik can do.
