Slovan Bratislava vs. Wolves: Slovakian outfit looking to maintain unbeaten run in Europe

Published

on

Wolves have undeniably taken their foot off the gas this season compared to last, but have seemingly picked up their form in recent weeks.

They have admittedly had a much busier schedule this time around, and have found it somewhat hard to balance Premier League life with Europa League meetings on a Thursday night.

Their next trip involves a lengthy journey to face Slovakian outfit Slovan Bratislava. The English side will be keen to make it back-to-back wins in the competition after beating Besiktas 1-0.

Willy Boly’s last-gasp winner secured all three points for them in Turkey, with Wolves picking up their first points in the competition after losing 1-0 to Braga at Molineux on matchday 1.

However, Nuno Espirito Santo’s side face a team who are among the top scorers in the entire competition after two games.

The Slovakians beat Besiktas 4-2 on matchday one, before a 2-2 draw at Braga sent them top of the group on goal difference.

Striker Andraz Sporar is one of just four players to have already bagged three goals in the competition this season. He will undoubtedly want to get on the scoresheet once again in front of his home fans on Thursday evening.

The 25-year-old Slovenian is 6/1 to score the game’s opening goal.

The group leaders are available at 4/1 to win the game, while a draw at 11/4 would see them remain unbeaten.

Wolves, however, can be backed at 4/6 to win on the road once again. Defender Willy Boly is available at 20/1 to open the scoring and find another important goal for his club.

The away side are 2/1 to find the net just once in Slovakia. And they are 6/1 to pick up another closely-fought 1-0 victory.

Having scored at least twice in their previous two games, Bratislava are available at 11/4 to score over 1.5. They have also conceded two goals in their two Europa League fixtures this season. Wolves are currently 9/4 to score twice on Thursday evening.

After a hectic start to the season, Wolves may have finally found the solution to coping with both weekend and midweek matches.

They travelled to Besiktas on gameweek two in Europe and came away with three points and a clean sheet, before travelling to Premier League champions Manchester City and doing the exact same thing.

Wolves are currently 5/4 to keep another clean sheet on the road. They are 13/5 to concede but still manage to win the game.

Striker Raul Jimenez has once again been on fine form for the club this season. The Mexican is 15/4 to score the first goal of the game.

And it’s 9/1 should recently-crowned hero Adama Traore play and score the game’s opener.
