Espanyol vs Wolves Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips

Wolves are set to do the double over Espanyol in their UEFA Europa League round of 32 clash at the RCDE Stadium. Having romped to a comfortable 4-0 victory in the first leg, Wolves should once again be untroubled by the Spaniards.

Espanyol Form

Espanyol were disappointing in the first leg as they suffered a 4-0 defeat to Wolves. They were no match for the Premier League team throughout the contest and failed to convert the few chances created.

The Spaniards are out of sorts at the moment as they followed up that result with a 2-1 La Liga defeat at Real Valladolid in on Sunday. Abelardo's men have claimed just one win in their last seven matches and are currently fighting for survival in La Liga.

Espanyol News

Espanyol continue to be without injured striker Raul De Tomas. Victor Campuzano and Sebastien Corchia are also expected to miss Thursday’s match due to injury.

Wolverhampton Form

Wolves were in rampant mood in the first leg as they ran out 4-0 winners at Molineux. Diogo Jota scored a hat-trick while Ruben Neves was also on target for the Premier League club.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s men are playing with plenty of confidence and head to Spain after a 3-0 Premier League victory over Norwich City. Diogo Jota followed up his impressive form in midweek with a brace while Raul Jimenez grabbed the third.

Wolves have also impressed defensively in recent weeks, keeping clean sheets in their last four matches.
