Wolves take on Sevilla in the Europa League next week and they will be looking to book their place in the semi-finals of the competition with a win.
This is the first time in 48 years, Wolves are in the last eight of a European competition and Nuno’s men will be determined to pull off a good result.
Wolves have shown that they are no pushovers and this should be a cracking contest. Wolves are lethal on the counter-attack and players like Traore/Jimenez can hurt any defence on their day.
It will be interesting to see how they set up for this game. Nuno will want to contain Sevilla and then hit them on the break.
Everyone has to realise that it’s been a long, long season. I don’t know how many miles we’ve travelled – it’s crazy. That’s what I said to the players. Football gives us good moments and bad moments, but it’s also enjoyable to compete. Now we will rest and we’ll focus on Sevilla. We are going to face a very good opponent. It’s going to be tough, but let’s make this final effort. It’s challenging ourselves.Nuno Espirito Santo, Wolves Manager.
Predicted XI: Vaclík; Navas, Diego Carlos, Koundé, Reguilón; Fernando, Jordán, Banega; Ocampos, Munir, De Jong

The Spanish outfit will be the favourites heading into this game. They are in fantastic form right now and they have won the Europa League three times in the last six years.
Sevilla know what it takes to win this trophy and they have the right balance of experience and quality.
One of the things I can be proudest of is the synergy and the support of the whole squad. It’s the squad that brought us to this point and it is the squad that will keep guiding us. Now we have to recover and think about the next one. We’re not counting: we’ve earned the right to be in the next match, nothing else.”Julen Lopetegui, Sevilla Manager
