Wolves Advance to Europa League Play-off Round with 8-0 Aggregate against Pyunik


Diogo Jota netted a stunning acrobatic volley as Wolves defeated Armenia side Pyunik 4-0 at Molineux to progress on an 8-0 aggregate score and book a play-off date with Torino.

Wolves were already virtually sure of a place in the play-off round after establishing a 4-0 win at the Republican Stadium last week, but they ensured they moved closer to the group stage in style, brushing Pyunik 4-0 at Molineux to make it 8-0 on aggregate.

Perdo Neto opened the scoring in his debut before setting up Morgan Gibbs-White for the second.

Ruben Vinagre scored the third of the night from close range and substitute Jota wrapped up the victory with a sweet acrobatic finish.
It made the biggest aggregate victory in Europe for Wolves and now they are just two games away from reaching the Europa League group stage.

But they will face a tougher test in Italian outfit Torino, who saw off Belarus’ FC Shakhtyor 6-1 on aggregate. The first leg is set to be played on Aug 22 with the second leg coming a week after.

Albeit the massive scoreline, Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo told reporters that it was quite a challenge to get past Pyunik.

“It wasn’t easy. Pyunik started the game very well again. I’ve spoken to their coach and wish them all the best for the future,” he said.

“I thought all my players did a very good job, not just the new players. The second-half display was very good.

“It was a good game. I think we started the game normally because some players take more time. As the game went by we started performing better and the second half was very, very good.

“I am pleased with all the team, all the players did a very good job.”

Wolves now get back to Premier League action against Manchester United on Monday night.
