Wolverhampton Wanderers will play hosts to Olympiacos at the Molineux Stadium on Thursday evening hoping to pick up a win in the second leg of their UEFA Europa League last 16 tie. Nuno Espirito Santo’s men managed to grind out a 1-1 draw in the first leg away at Greece, so they would be quietly confident about their chances of securing qualification in midweek.
The West Midlands side could set themselves up in a 3-4-3 formation with Adama Traore expected to get the nod to start ahead of Daniel Podence, who might have to settle for a spot on the bench. Wolves will hope to dominate more of the ball and create some decent chances going forward so that they can earn a victory at home versus their Greek counterparts.
3-4-3 Wolves Predicted Lineup To Face Olympiacos
Rui Patricio will operate in between the sticks for the home side as he tries to keep a clean sheet in midweek. Nuno Espirito Santo might go with a back three of Willy Boly, Conor Coady and Romain Saïss as they look to restrict the Greek side from scoring on Thursday. All three defenders will try to maintain a high line so that they can push on forward in search of the win.
Joao Moutinho will anchor the midfield alongside Ruben Neves as they focus on producing a dominant display at the centre of the park. The Portuguese duo will need to dictate the tempo of the game and cook up some promising openings for their teammates in the final third.
Jonny Otto will be a guaranteed starter down the left flank while Matt Doherty looks to impress on the other side as the right wing-back.
Diogo Jota and Adama Traore will try to provide some natural width out on the wide areas while Raul Jimenez leads the charge for the West Midlands giants down the middle. All three Wolves attackers will be eager to score and make the difference in what is expected to be another exciting European night at the Molineux.
Daniel Podence and Pedro Neto will have to wait for their chance on the bench but might come on as the impact substitutes in the second half if Nuno Espirito Santo decides to call upon their services.
