Wolves v Torino

Wolves handed Torino a route back into this tie by conceding twice in the final half an hour of the first leg, but the Midlands club remain in a strong position as they prepare to welcome the Italian side to Monaco for the second leg on Thursday night. Wolves made the breakthrough just before the break when Gleison Bremer put past his own goalkeeper, and they doubled their lead on the hour when Diogo Jota found the back of the net. Torino quick cut the deficit to one goal only for Raul Jimenez to restore Wolves’ two-goal cushion 18 minutes from time, but the Italians were not about go quietly and Andrea Belotti’s late penalty means only one goal separates the two clubs here.

“It's far from being over, it's a close tie,” Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo said afterwards. “We played good, we were organised, we stayed in shape, we produced some goals but, like I say, there's still one game to go and we have to be really, really good to perform again against a very, very good team.”

Nuno is right, with only one goal separating the clubs the tie is far from over. However, it cannot be ignored that Wolves have three away goals to their name and therefore it is no surprise that they are overwhelming favourites in the ‘To Qualify’ market for this Europa League qualifier. They are not in particularly great form though and there are already some questions surrounding whether or not they can cope with a European campaign on top of their domestic obligations. Wolves needed an added-time penalty to rescue a point at home to Burnley this past weekend and they have now reeled off three straight 1-1 stalemates to start their Premier League campaign. Torino, meanwhile, opened up their domestic campaign with a 2-1 victory against Sassuolo this past weekend so they will head to England with confidence. I do not expect them to translate that confidence into a victory however.

Wolves have stumbled a little during the first few weeks of their domestic campaign, but they have been flying on the European front and I am not about to write them off after an underwhelming few results in recent weeks. This is talented team loaded with attacking threat, and when it comes to their home form over the past few years it has been very strong. A lot of top clubs have rolled up at Molineux and left with their tails between their legs in the past 12 months, so you can back Wolves with plenty of confidence on Thursday night. You should also back Jimenez to play a goal-scoring role again – he has netted in each of his last two appearances for Wolves and already has six goals in eight appearances this season, with five of them coming in Europa League qualifying. Goal number seven for 2019/20 can come here as Wolves book a place in the group stage.
