Wolverhampton Wanderers News and Form – Another big win for Nuno’s Wolves?

Santo’s Wolverhampton Wanderers had a remarkable first season in the Premier League last term following promotion from the EFL Championship. The Midlands outfit finished in seventh place, winning 16 times and accumulating 57 points.

Wolves’ lofty league position saw them qualify for this season’s Europa League. Wanderers kicked off their European journey with a 2-0 home win over Northern Irish outfit Crusaders. In the second leg, Nuno’s boys cruised to a 4-1 victory to go through with a 6-1 aggregate score.

Wolverhampton Wanderers ran riot in the first leg of this tie. Matt Doherty put them a goal up after 29 minutes, with Raul Jimenez making it two before half time. Jimenez scored again a minute after the break before Ruben Neves’ late penalty put even more gloss on the scoreline.

Meanwhile, Wolves started their Premier League campaign with a 0-0 draw with Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City at the King Power Stadium last Sunday. After hosting Pyunik on Thursday, the Midlands side welcome Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United to Molineux at the weekend.

Wolves did the job in the first leg, but Nuno will want his side to secure another victory in front of their home supporters in midweek. In truth, the hosts should have no problems whatsoever in this one.

Pyunik News and Form – Can the Armenians avoid a heavy defeat in Wolverhampton?

Pyunik’s Europa League journey looks to be coming to an end after they suffered a heavy defeat at the hands of Wolves at the Vazgen Sargsyan Republican Stadium last week. Prior to last Thursday’s mauling, the Armenian side edged past Shkupi and Jablonec to reach the third qualifying round.

Pyunik have played one game in the Armenian Premier League so far this term. Aleksandr Tarkhanov’s boys kicked off with a comfortable 3-0 away win at Urartu. Artak Yedigaryan, Artur Miranyan and Artem Simonyan were the scorers at Banants Stadium last weekend.

Pyunik had a fine domestic season last term, finishing runners-up to champions Ararat-Armenia. The Yerevan club won 18, drew six and lost eight of their 32 games to pick up 60 points. Along the way, Pyunik scored 46 times and shipped 32 goals.

Pyunik will be hoping to avoid another heavy defeat on Thursday. Tarkhanov will want his side to keep things tight at the back and try to catch Wolves on the break. If the hosts are at the top of their game, though, it could be a long night in England for last term’s Armenian Premier League runners-up.

Wolverhampton Wanderers v Pyunik Predictions

Wolverhampton Wanderers win: This should be another comfortable win for Wolves. On their day, this current crop of players is more than capable of putting any side to the sword. Wolves should keep another clean sheet, so have a punt on the home team to win to nil, which you can get at the decent price of 8/15.

Raul Jimenez had a fine first season in English football last term. In fact, Santo was so impressed with the Mexican that he forked out £30m to Benfica for his signature back in April. Jimenez has hit the ground running this term, scoring braces in Europa League wins over Crusaders and Pyunik. The Mexico international will be keen to continue his flying start on Thursday, and I like the look of 11/10 for Jimenez to score two or more goals in this second leg.
