Wolves Form & Team News 


Wolves are unbeaten in both Europe and the Premier League this season but the club are starting to struggle to balance the two. 

The team drew 1-1 at home to Burnley at the weekend thanks to a last-minute penalty scored by Raul Jimenez. They have now drawn all three of their opening Premier League fixtures. 

With one of the smallest squads in the division, Nuno Espirito Santo has done an effective job of juggling players so far but Thursday will be his biggest challenge. Raul Jimenez will likely be handed a start despite playing in the last two fixtures, and Diego Jota will probably start alongside him. Cutrone does provide them with another option if he decides to allow them a break. 

Wolves are favourites for the match and are currently priced at 1.90 with bet365 to win the match, which is worth a punt.

Torino Form & Team News 


Torino bounced back from their defeat to Wolves by defeating Sassuolo 2-1 at Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino at the weekend. Simone Zaza and Andrea Belloti got their names on the scoresheet. 

Like Wolves, Torino have had a busy campaign juggling the Europa League and Serie A but due to the fact that Serie A starts later, they have not played as many games as Wolves yet. 

Manager Walter Mazzarri will probably stick to the same side that lost to Wolves last week in the Europa League. Andrea Belloti will start up top, with Simone Zaza and Alex Berenguer just behind him. 

Torino are priced at 4.00 to win the match. They are not on excellent form away from home and Wolve’s are unbeaten at the Molineux so far this campaign.

Wolves vs Torino Match Analysis - Wolves to progress in the Europa League 


Wolves and Torino have both been exciting teams to watch so far this campaign. Wolves have seen over 2.5 goals in each of their Europa League matches so far, including in their match against Torino last week. 

Wolves have a strong and experienced side who have more quality in their starting 11 than Torino. Their performance against Burnley at the weekend wasn’t overly promising but they have looked like they are capable of taking things up a gear in Europe.

Wolves vs Torino Betting Tips - Goals and a Wolves Win 


Wolves are currently valued at 1.90 to win the match. This isn’t incredible value but they look like a strong outfit and it should be worth placing some money on. 

As for other markets, Wolves have been exhilarating to watch in Europe this season and their fans have witnessed over 2.5 goals in all but one of their matches. At odds of 2.00 with bet365, this presents great value. 

Verdict

Wolves and Torino played out an entertaining encounter in Turin last week and recent matches suggest we can expect more of the same this time around.
