Wolves 6/4 to beat Espanyol in Thursday’s Europea League showdown
Competition: Europa League
Market: Wolves win
Odds: 6/4 @ Bet 365
Looking to finish the job on Thursday evening, Wolves will make the trip to La Liga struggles Espanyol in midweek.
Starting with the hosts, while Espanyol may have managed to book their spot in the knockout stage of this year’s Europa League, the Spanish outfit are enduring a worrying run of form. Chasing down a four-goal deficit after their first-leg hammering, the White and Blues have been hit with back-to-back defeats and have now won just one of their last seven matches across all competitions. Along with shipping a pair of goals in their last three matches on the bounce, it should also be noted that Espanyol have conceded seven goals in their last three Europa League appearances. Even more worrying for Thursday’s hosts, the Spanish outfit have won just one of their last seven matches on home soil.
As for the visitors, putting in a dominant display in the first leg last week, Wolves have now landed back-to-back victories and are within touching distance of securing their spot in the quarter-finals of this year’s Europa League. Looking to secure another top-six Premier League finish, the Oranges now find themselves in the midst of a four-match unbeaten run across all competitions. Even more impressive, along with recording four clean sheets on the bounce, it should be noted that Wolves are unbeaten in all six of their Europa League matches this season, winning five of those contests. Scoring two or more goals in all bar one of their matches on the road, we’re backing another away victory this week.
