The Wolves have secured a place in the UEFA Europa League, following two brilliant goals from Raul Jimenez and Leander Dendoncker whose goals paved the team’s way into the Europa League group stage.

Wolves came out 2-1 victors over Italian mid-table boys, Torino. Mexican Striker, Raul Jimenez, struck amazing six goals in six European games, two of which came over two-legs against Torino, helping his club progress on 5-3 aggregate in their Europa League play-off tie.

Star man for Torino, Andrea Belotti, briefly levelled Raul Jimenez’s first half goal in the second half but Dendocker found the back for Wolves to cap a home victory at Molineux Stadium.
