Pyunik 0-4 Wolves: Jimenez scores another brace as Nuno's men take control of tie

Wolves all but secured their place in the Europa League play-offs with a 4-0 first-leg win over Pyunik in the third qualifying round.

Raul Jimenez scored twice as Wolves cruised to a 4-0 win over Pyunik in the first leg of their Europa League third-round qualifier at the Republican Stadium.

Nuno Espirito Santo was rewarded for naming a strong starting line-up for Thursday's match - Wolves' first European tie outside of the United Kingdom since 1980 - as Jimenez made it back-to-back braces after starring against Crusaders in the previous round.

The Mexico striker added to his early-season goals tally with strikes either side of half-time in Armenia after Matt Doherty had opened the scoring just before the half-hour mark.
