Wolves’ European Adventure Began a Year Ago!

Nuno Espirito Santo will be smiling about the fact that Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Europa League campaign began on 25 July 2020, with the Midlands side clashing with Irish team Crusaders and winning the game by a 2-0 scoreline before a 4-1 win in the return leg.

Since then, Wolves have negotiated several more difficult obstacles and stand on the verge of the last eight of the competition, having earned a 1-1 draw away to Olympiakos on 12 March which puts them in pole position to reach the quarter final stage of the competition.

Nuno’s side are trading at a best price 1.95 with William Hill to win this match at Molineux and it looks attractive enough considering that Wanderers are in decent form at the time of writing.

The Starting 11 is very strong and includes the sharp-shooting Raul Jimenez in attack, while Joao Moutinho and Ruben Neves are a reliable midfield duo and this isn’t a team who concede many goals.

Do Olympiakos Stand Any Chance of Going Through?

Youssef El-Arabi put Olympiakos into lead during the first leg of their Europa League clash against Wolves before Pedro Neto scored an equaliser, although the Greek team will still fancy their chances of going through.

After all, this was a side who dumped Arsenal out of the competition in the previous round, with that man El-Arabi scoring a late extra-time winner to ensure that the Gunners were eliminated.

The Greek team are comfortably the best domestically and the fact that they have the title wrapped up means that the Athens team will have time to prepare properly for this clash.

However, the standard of the Super League in Greece isn’t comparable to English football and Wolves will feel confident of getting the job done.

What Are the Best Bets for This Match?

Wolverhampton Wanderers have come a long way in this competition and there’s the opportunity to set up a quarter final clash against either Sevilla or Roma, something which would be one of the most historic matches in the history of the club.

Wolves have returned after the lockdown in excellent form and we feel they could be worth backing in this clash, especially after a powerful display against Everton where they outplayed the Toffees.

We think defensive generals like Conor Coady and Roman Saiss can also make sure that Olympiakos are starved of service, with Wolves the sort of team who can hold on to an advantage and they know that a goal will leave their opponents needing to score twice to go through.
