Nuno Espirito Santo’s Wolves side booked their place in the group stages of the Europa League following a 2-1 victory over Torino at Molineux.

Goals from Leander Dendoncker and Raul Jimenez in each half at Molineux guided Wolves to a comfortable 5-3 aggregate win. The visitors did equalise just 13 minutes into the second-half through Andrea Belotti, but in the end, it was a comfortable win for Wolves.

For the Black Country side, it’s the first time that they’ve reached the main stage of a European competition since 1980 after coming through three qualification rounds.

Wolves won’t have to wait too long to discover who they’ll face in the Europa League group stages as the draw takes place tomorrow at 12:00 BST in Monaco. Wolves included, five British sides (Manchester United, Arsenal, Celtic and Rangers) go into the draw, although none of them can draw each other in the group phase.
