Tip Wolves - Pyunik Yerevan
Wolves are just three games away from the group stages of the Europa League. They find themselves in a powerful position after the first leg having beaten Pyunik 4-0. There were some big comebacks last season but it'll be a shock of earthquake proportions if the English Premier League side doesn't make it into the play-off round. They will most likely face Serie A's Torino there as they won their first leg game 5-0. Wolves have so far beaten Crusaders in the Europa League this season. The home leg of that tie was won 2-0 with a 2-1 victory on their travels. Raul Jiminez has signed on a permanent basis for them now and he's already scored four goals in the Europa League qualifiers. They are unbeaten in their last six games with just one goal conceded and opened their Premier League season with a goalless draw at Leicester City.
Pyunik were only formed in 1992 but have won a record number of Armenian league titles. Not in recent seasons though, hence their being in the Europa League this season. They have only won one of their last three games coming into this match. In the last round, they got the better of Jablonec winning 2-1 at home and drawing 0-0 in the away leg. Only two of their nine away Europa League games have been won with six defeats. Five of their nine away games have seen them fail to score. Not exactly inspiring when trying to overturn a 4-0 deficit. Wolves are likely to make a few changes but should still have too much for their opponents. Go for Wolves to win and be leading at both half and full time.
Key points Wolves - Pyunik Yerevan

Conclusion Wolves - Pyunik Yerevan
It might not be the 4-0 from the away leg but Wolves can be backed to win this match. They outclassed their Armenian opponents in the first leg and are likely to do so again at Molineux. Team changes are likely, especially with their next game being at home to Manchester United. Wolves have a strong squad though and their opponents struggle away from home. Go for a home win with a lead at both half and full time.
