Pyunik form and stats

Last season, Pyunik's Armenian Cup journey ended in the 8th finals.

With 0 Premier League wins, 4 draws and 2 defeats from their home games, Pyunik are certainly not brimming with confidence. Pyunik are slowly digging their own grave here at Pyunik Training Centre with the depressing streak of not having won a home league game in eight attempts. The last victory here came in the Yerevan match. With three straight defeats the pressure is piling up on Pyunik to get some points in this home game.

The bookmakers consider this a fairly even contest. One could say only the home advantage separates the teams. It could be relevant to look at how Pyunik have performed in matches similar to this (as small favourites). Our database has found eight matches with the results: Won two, drawn three and lost three.

There's a new game coming up fairly quickly for Pyunik as they are travelling to their away game against Shirak in the Premier League. That match is four days after this one.

Pyunik have scored 2 goals here in 6 league matches, a depressing statistic. Pyunik have only conceded 5 from their league home games. For more goal stats, check the Statistics tab above.
