Wolverhampton Wanderers qualified for the knockout stage of the Europa League in style, although they look very short to win their first leg encounter against an Espanyol team who were also impressive when going through.

Yes, Wolves have been very impressive in the English Premier League over the past two seasons although they did lose at home to Braga during the group phase and could only manage a 1-0 victory over Slovan Bratislava.

The Midlands side are still new to European competition and their key objective will be to make sure that their Spanish opponents don’t find the net at Molineux, with Abelardo’s side having averaged two goals per game during the group phase.

Espanyol claimed a 2-0 win at CSKA Moscow before triumphing away to Ludogorets Razgrad and the massive downside with backing the Spanish side is down to the fact that they are having a horrendous time of things domestically.

At the time of writing, the Periquitos are bottom of La Liga and in grave danger of being relegated, with their Europa League campaign having had an adverse effect on their domestic form a few months ago.

There is still time for Espanyol to play their way out of trouble and their mission in England will be to get that away goal and thwart dangerous attacking players such as Adama Traore and Raul Jimenez.

We can back the visitors with a +1 advantage at a decent price and that means money back if they lose by a single goal, although it’s possible that Wanderers will struggle to break down opponents who will initially put lots of men behind the ball.

Wolves themselves have only won four times at home in the Premier League from twelve attempts and we’re expecting them to find life tough in this clash.
