Wolves vs Pyunik
Europa League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 15 August 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Molineux Stadium (Wolverhampton).
Wolves certainly made light work of their foes in their maiden clash and comfortably came out on top with a 4-0 scoreline at the last blast of the whistle.
The hosts were always the favorites to win, and so it was no surprise when they did it without breaking much of a sweat. The squad scored two goals in each half and restricted their opponents from taking not more than two shots on target in the entire game.
Pyunik bounced back from that loss with a 3-0 win over Urartu back in their domestic league and will be confident of cutting the deficit, if not securing the win when they travel to Wolverhampton this week. However, the home team are by far the more superior side on all fronts and are likely to punish Pyunik even further with the home advantage at hand.

Wolves vs Pyunik Prediction
Despite Pyunik boasting a fairly impressive away record of their own, it needs saying that the guests are in no way on par with the hosts who feature in one of the toughest leagues across Europe. The scoreline from their previous encounter is a testament to the aforementioned, and so the visitors are still the underdogs to come out on top in this one.
The Wanderers have not tasted defeat here in their last six clashes in all competitions and have been keeping a clean sheet in their last two games in a row. Given that Pyunik managed not more than two shots on target in their previous encounter against the hosts, an easy win and a clean sheet is certainly looming large for Wolves in this one.
Considering that the hosts already have four away goals up their sleeve, they are unlikely to be as offensive as they were last time out on. So expect under 5.5 goals to feature on the scorecards, with Pyunik unlikely to contribute to the figures with a goal of their own.
