Competition: Europa League
Market: Wolves win
Odds: 6/4 @ Bet 365
On the verge of landing their spot in the quarter-final of this year’s Europa League, Wolves will make the trip to a downbeat Espanyol on Thursday evening.
Starting with the hosts, hit with what was a woeful 4-0 hammering away at Molineux last week, the mood in Espanyol’s camp remains at a constant low. Still sat rock-bottom of the La Liga table and also hit with a 2-1 defeat away at Real Valladolid over the weekend in what was billed as a must-win encounter, Periquitos have landed just a sole win across any competition over the past seven weeks. Still dealing with some continued issues on home soil, there is no doubt that fans around the RCDE Stadium will have growing concerns over their side’s continued problems at the back. Having to complete a four-goal turnaround on Thursday evening, Espanyol have now shipped eight goals in just their last three outings.
As for the visitors, building off of their stunning first-leg display in the Midlands last week, Wolves continued their free-scoring run over the weekend. Picking up a thumping 3-0 win over Premier League relegation scrappers Norwich on Sunday, the mood in Nuno Espírito Santo’s camp is certainly on the rise. Looking to make another statement out in Spain in midweek, Thursday’s traveling support could be calling on the red-hot Diogo Jota to lead their charge on foreign soil. Bagging a hat-trick against Espanyol in the first leg, the 23-year-old winger also recorded a brace against Norwich over the weekend. While Santo might be expected to make a string of changes in midweek, we’re backing an away victory at the RCDE Stadium.
