Wolves vs Slovan Bratislava Match Preview
Wolves should take a huge stride towards the Europa League knockout stage by completing the double over Slovan Bratislava and pulling five points clear of them in Group K.
Barring a remarkable turnaround by the hugely disappointing Besiktas, who have lost three out of three so far, it looks as though one of Thursday’s protagonists at Molineux will join table-topping Braga in advancing to the last 32 from this pool.
It looked ominous for Wolves when they trailed 1-0 at half time in Slovakia two weeks ago. But goals within six minutes from Romain Saiss and Raul Jimenez (penalty) overturned the deficit for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side to give them a 2-1 win that lifted them above Slovan into second position in the group standings.
There was one blow inasmuch as forward Diogo Jota was sent off in that game and so will miss the rematch due to suspension, but the Portuguese 22-year-old has not been starting in this competition anyway and tends to be saved for the Premier League.
Difficult to beat this season apart from a poor spell in the first half of September, Wolves have been drawing too many matches domestically and a shortage of clean sheets recently will be a concern for Nuno.
You would not put your mortgage on the Midlanders shutting out Slovan this time, but they should be too strong for the Slovaks and can cement second position in the group with what would be an important success.
