Slovan Bratraislava vs WolvesUEFA Europa League, KO: 17:55 Oct 24, 2019, Tehelne Pole
WOLVES have every right to feel miffed that a stadium which was supposed to lie empty will be packed to the rafters for this Group K encounter.
Slovan Bratislava were ordered by UEFA to play the game behind closed doors as punishment for racism from their supporters, but have exploited a loophole by giving away tickets to under-14s.
Around 200 Wolves fans will also be in attendance, hoping to see their team extend a six-game unbeaten run in all competitions that has steadied the ship after a rocky start to the season.
Wolves' last Europa League outing saw them nick full points with an injury-time Willy Boly strike at Besiktas and they'll need another resolute performance against a Slovan side who sit a point ahead at the top of the section.
Slovan were shocked in Champions League qualifying by Sutjeska of Montenegro but have started to make amends in the Europa League, following up a 4-2 home win over Besiktas with a creditable 2-2 draw away to Braga.
The hosts are 4-1 at bet365 for victory and that looks big, considering they are unbeaten in 33 games on their own patch. With Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo fond of ringing the changes for Europa League action, Slovan are worth taking not to lose at 121-100 with Marathonbet.
Slovan have gone a whopping 50 matches since they last failed to net at home, so both teams to score at just shy of evens also appeals.
And with both Bratislava matches so far having been goal-laden affairs, try a strike in each half at 5-6 with BetVictor.
The scoring burden for the home team will fall on Slovenia international striker Andraz Sporar who is bidding to add to his three-goal group-stage haul and net for the third straight Europa League game.
