Besiktas vs WolvesUEFA Europa League, KO: 17:55 Oct 3, 2019, Vodafone Arena
WOLVES head to Turkey on the back of a much-needed Premier League win that has lifted some of the gloom at Molineux amid a ropey start to the campaign.
It's been a bad case of second season syndrome for Nuno Espirito Santo, who led the club to a seventh-place finish on their return to the top flight.
They at least hit the ground running in the Europa League this term, with their charge through the qualifiers including home and away wins over Torino.
That shuddered to a halt in their Group K opener, losing 1-0 at home to Braga, so they are looking to bounce back instantly against a Besiktas side in a similar state of disarray.
Abdullah Avci's team have won just one of their opening five matches in Turkish Super League and began Group K with a 1-0 loss at Getafe.
Besiktas failed to make it out of a fairly week Europa League group last season, losing at home to Genk and Malmo, and although the atmosphere will be hostile, Wolves have little to fear on the pitch.
The visitors are a chunky 9-5 at Marathonbet for victory, with Besiktas slight favourites at 8-5 with Coral and the draw 127-50 at Marathonbet.
Despite their early-season struggles, Nuno's men have been decent on their travels – their only defeat in six was a 3-2 reversal at Everton – and can avoid defeat in this Euro tussle.
Double Wolves win or draw with over 1.5 match goals in a bet365 bet builder that pays a shade under even money.
And with neither side looking watertight at the back, consider a goal in both halves at 17-20 with BetVictor.
