With their place in the next round practically sealed already, Al Hain-Cole doesn’t see Espirito Santo’s men putting too many goals past the Armenians

Having eased to a comfortable 4-0 win in the away leg, Wolves should have little trouble in booking their place in the Europa League play-off round when Pyunik visit Molineux on Thursday.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s men outclassed their Armenian opponents in Yerevan, with Raul Jimenez twice getting on target whilst Matt Doherty and Ruben Neves also struck.

Latest odds

Unbeaten in 12 fixtures in front of their own fans, they are priced at 1/33 (1.03) to increase their aggregate lead by coming out on top.

The guests have only ever won six of their 29 away matches in European competition, but can be backed at 28/1 (29.00) to pull off a shock victory here, or 14/1 (15.00) to earn a creditable draw.

Team news

With qualification almost assured already, the likes of Patrick Cutrone, Jesus Vallejo, Pedro Neto and Bruno Jordao could come into a rotated starting XI ahead of Monday’s Premier League clash with Manchester United.

Hovhannes Poghosyan and Artur Kartashyan will both face late fitness tests, while Robert Hakobyan is definitely ruled out.

Preview

Matt Doherty Wolves 2018-19

As well as rewarding the loyal fans who made the long trip to Yerevan, the 4-0 victory in the away leg was particularly welcome as it effectively ended this tie as a contest.

Following on from a competitive 0-0 draw against Leicester and with a tough trip to Old Trafford coming up, the ever pragmatic Espirito Santo is likely to offer some of his key players a rest and hope for a fairly uneventful game.

With no need to get out of second gear, it seems unlikely that Wolves will score more than four goals for just the second time in 103 games under the Portuguese manager.

Predictions

With Pyunik having netted just 14 goals in their last 22 European away games, odds of 11/10 (2.10) look like excellent value on this match featuring under 4.5 goals.
