With Wolves going through as runners-up in their Europa League group, they have set up their first knockout tie in almost 40 years as a club – a juicy match against Espanyol.

When fans were imagining their European trips before the season started, a nice little trip to Barcelona must have been one they would have appreciated – especially when the team they are playing are rooted at the bottom of the league.

Wolves fans have had a nice eclectic range of destinations so far on this European journey. It started with a trip the qualifiers: a trip to Belfast, then Yerevan (Armenia) and finishing up in Turin to play Torino. Then three more trips to Istanbul, Bratislava and Braga rounds up six quite varied and exciting places to visit.

How far will Wolves go in the Europa League?

Fans were delighted to hear about the draw, with many thinking it suits them very well for them to get through to the next round. Some fans even joked that Champions League was on the horizon, as you can read below…

If you compare the two teams, then Wanderers have to be considered as the favourites. Espanyol did well to get through their group as winners, though they had a slightly more favourable group with CSKA Moscow, Ferencvaros and Ludogrets.

They are five points from safety at the moment, so will be extremely focussed on retaining their position in La Liga, whereas Wolves are knocking at the door of Europe once again.
