Wolverhampton Wanderers play against Torino in a Europa League playoff second leg clash at Molineux on Thursday night.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side will be favorites to advance from the tie as they carry a 3-2 advantage after winning in Italy.

Wolves can however ill-afford to underestimate their Italian counterparts, especially as upsets do happen in cup football. Torino are also in relatively good form and have won four out of their last six games in all competitions.

Nuno’s men could be set to play Jesus Vallejo, Ruben Vinagre, Romain Saiss, Leander Dendoncker and Adama Traore, who all missed last weekend’s Premier League game against Burnley, according to a report published by Goal

Wolves go into the game with no injury worries and a full squad to choose from, according to their official website. 

It will not be surprising to see Nuno tinker with his side once again and start withdrawing key players especially if his side takes the lead and does well.

Wolves have a Premier League game against Everton coming up and need their first win of the season after having drawn their opening three games of the domestic campaign.

The English side can progress to the next stage of the competition by simply avoiding defeat.

Even if Wolves lose, it will have to be by more than two goals as a result of them securing three goals away from home.

As long as Nuno’s side get the basics right on the night, they can at least draw or even win the game. Torino will be vulnerable on the counter attack.
