Wolves moved to the brink of the Europa League group stages last night with an impressive 3-2 play-off, first leg win at Torino.

The English Premier League side, playing in their first European campaign since 1981, went ahead through an own-goal from Gleison Bremer just before half-time.

Diogo Jota made it 2-0 on the hour mark but Lorenzo de Silvestri pulled one back for the Italians two minutes later.

Raul Jimenez restored Wolves’ two-goal lead after 72 minutes before Andrea Belotti’s penalty for Torino in the dying moments kept the Serie A side in the tie ahead of the return leg at Molineux next Thursday.

“It’s a close tie. It’s not over, far from being over. We have to take on a very tough team,” Wolves coach Nuno Espirito Santo told the Express and Star newspaper.

“We played good. We were organised, we stayed in shape. We produced some goals but like I say, one game to go.”
