🇪🇺Wolves v Pyunik🇪🇺[LIVE]

Once again I’ve taken the liberty of including our 6 fingered neighbours, as I know they have ambitions of playing in European competitions

Spanish centre-back Jesus Vallejo could make his debut in the second leg of Wolves' Europa League third-qualifying-round tie against Armenian side FC Pyunik on Thursday.

Vellejo could be one of several changes as Wolves go into the match with a 4-0 lead from the first leg in Armenia.

Italy striker Patrick Cutrone, who signed for £16m from AC Milan this summer, is in line for his full debut.

He has made two substitute appearances, against Pyunik and Leicester.

Winger Adama Traore is also available for the game at the Molineux after he missed the first leg because he forgot his passport.

No complacency, says Nuno

Wolves, competing in Europe for the first time since 1980, recorded their biggest ever continental victory in Armenia to give themselves a comfortable lead going into Thursday's return.

Raul Jimenez scored twice either side of the break after Republic of Ireland right-back Matt Doherty put Wolves in front within 29 minutes.

Midfielder Diogo Jota also picked up a hat-trick of assists and summer signing Cutrone won an injury-time penalty, which was converted by substitute Ruben Neves.

But manager Nuno Espirito Santo insisted Wolves would not be complacent.

"It's a new game, 0-0 - let's start to play. They will come with all the ambition and we have to be focused and give a good performance at Molineux," he said.

"They started very strong in the first game, we handled them OK and the moment we scored, we started controlling the game. We managed it until the end but Thursday is a new one.

"We have to make a decision to prepare the starting XI but having all the squad available gives us options and solutions. It's a challenge and a new reality, we want to embrace it and really give it a go."

The winners are very likely to play Torino in the final play-off tie to reach the group stages. The Italian side are 5-0 up from their first leg against FC Shakhtyor of Belarus.

Didn't know that was the case on the offices DJ, demand will be high for that one so fair play. I was expecting to have to shell out for that.

Oh dear. Looks like you're talking out of your rear once again.

Despite us being in the Championship, Albion are still rated 18th in England!

Pyunik (However you spell it) are ranked 745th in the world.

That's more than 500 places below Albion!

Good luck against Torino!

On the offices???? Predictive text has some funny ideas on this phone.

Expect the Torino game to be a close one, I'm told they are strong at the back, only conceded 37 league goals last season finishing 7th.

I think we've got enough in our locker to get past Torino. Pretty sure Nuno and the whole squad are taking this competition very seriously indeed.

Obviously that's not to say Tornino don't have a chance, that goes without saying in football.

I was expecting expecting to pay full whack for the Torino game so £15 is a good touch by the club. That one will feel like a proper European game after the warm ups against Crusaders and Pyunik.

Reflecting on last night our conversation at half time was ‘why are we here’ as Wolves appeared to be just going through the motions with a 4 goal lead. But the second half was really encouraging with Neto, Crutone, Traore, MGW, Kilman, Vinagre and Vallejo all showing they can have a part to play in our season. I still think we are one midfield player short but apart from that it suddenly looks as though we have a deeper squad than last season. And after the signings of Jota and Boly where most people were saying ‘who are they’ it looks like Jorge has found us another unknown gem in Neto

Very good team we have now, and surely they can only get better when you look at the age of our squad;

Neto 19
Gibbs White 19
Vinagre 20
Jordao 20
Cutrone 21
Neves 22
Vallejo 22
Jota 22
Traore 23

As a result of getting through to the next round of the Europa, the home game against Burnley now put back to Sunday 25th August at 16:30. That game and the Man Utd game already sold out

I believe that Bruno Jordao is the "one midfield player" that you think we're short of DJ. He's the final piece of the jigsaw, but just not quite ready yet.

Every chance we'll see him in the coming weeks though.

Be great if that turns out to be the case lone. Maybe we will see him in the Carabao Cup

Thought Jordao might have been on the bench last night, would have been the perfect opportunity to chuck him in to the fray. However I can understand why Nuno went with the strong bench.
