ANDYou can’t help but feel for Wolves fans who have been denied the infamous nights and crazy trips a European race brings, but it’s important 90 minutes for the club nonetheless.Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are well positioned to advance to the last eight of the Europa League, following a 1-1 draw and that crucial away goal in Athens. Olympiakos should not be underestimated, however, reversing a 1-0 deficit at Arsenal in the previous round, with Youssef El Arabi scoring a dramatic overtime goal to send them on away goals. Mathieu Valbuena is one of their star players while center-back Pape Abou Cisse has also impressed against Arsenal and has been linked with a move to the Premier League.

Wolves were slightly underwhelming in Draft Restart when they looked to face Chelsea for a Champions League spot. After winning three straight games after the league resumed, Wolves suffered damaging defeats to Arsenal and Sheffield United when Nuno was criticized for being overly cautious. However, they could reach the Champions League if they win the Europa League which will be decided via a series of one-off matches in Germany. Wolves will play against Sevilla and Roma if they progress tonight.

Daniel Podence faces his former club, while Nuno also has the choice between co-scorer Diogo Jota, Raul Jimenez and Adama Traoré in attack.

Ahead of the game, the Wolves manager called on the Premier League to give an extended break to the teams involved in Europe: “The Premier League should recognize the teams involved in Europe, depending on their path. We’re going to play in August and we’re going to start playing again in September.

“I’m sure they will review it and adjust the schedule. Of course, no team will be able to give players too much time to recover. ”

News from the team on the way soon.
