Wolves vs Torino
Europa League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 29 August 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45
Venue: Molineux Stadium (Wolverhampton).
Wolves overcame the odds in the first leg of their tie and subsequently posted an impressive 3-2 scoreline over Torino in their maiden clash in Turin last week. The hosts were much the more clinical of the two sides and would have had a comfy two-goal cushion to carry back to the Molineux, had it not been for a late penalty given against them, which Belotti coolly converted.
Torino surprisingly registered fifteen attempts at goal in that matchup, which was eight more than what their counterparts had achieved. Yet, they managed to beat the goalkeeper just once in open play.
Although the margin seems slender, the fact that they conceded three away goals in itself has reduced Torino’s chances of making it into the next round. With home advantage into the midst as well for the Wanderers, Torino will need nothing short of a miracle to make it into the group stages now.

Wolves vs Torino Prediction
The home team are sizing up to be a tough bunch to take down and are currently unbeaten in their new domestic campaign too. The squad have also been asserting their authority across Europe, with Torino being their latest victims.
On home soil, Wolves are undoubtedly at their best and have not tasted defeat in their last fifteen home games, that too across various competitions. The visitors, unfortunately, do not have a similar streak on the road to boast of and have managed to come out on top just once in their previous two outings.
Given the three away goals that hosts have up their sleeve, and the formidable record they are sporting at home, an easy win for the Wolves is definitely in the reckoning.
The Wanderers have found the back of the net eight times from their last four home clashes alone. Taking into account that seven of those eight were fired in during the latter forty-five minutes, you can certainly count on Wolves to breach the Italian outfit, by all means, in the second half.
