Pyunik vs FK Vardar Skopje
Europa League Qualifying
Date: Thursday 12th July 2018
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Pyunik Stadium (Yerevan)
Armenian side Pyunik will take on FK Vardar Skopje in this first leg first round qualifying round for the Europa League. Pyunik has been made the outsiders for this first leg win and the away team have been made odds on but still with value to take a lead back home for the 2nd leg which will be played on July 19th.
The Pyunik Stadium holds under 800 people so we cannot expect the greatest atmosphere at this game. Vardar have much more experience at this level and should have enough to secure the win.
The away team are not afraid even on their travels to attack and it could be a long night for the home side.
When we think of Vardar’s home stadium having a capacity of 33,000 we must take into context the gulf in the teams revenue. Vardar are a good price to win this game and there is certainly value to be had even if they have to travel from Macedonia to Armenia for this match.
Pyunik vs FK Vardar Skopje: Head to Head
These two teams have not previously met before.
Pyunik vs FK Vardar Skopje: Prediction
Our bet here for small stakes will be to see the away side come away with a result. Both teams have not played a competitive game since May, so the game may start off slow.
But Vardar possess the better players and will understand the importance of away goals and if they can get at least 2 then they will have one foot in the next round.
It’s difficult to see the home side imposing themselves on this game; Away win for us.
