Wolves seal Europa League quarter-final spot after Olympiacos win

    Raul Jimenez’s first-half penalty against Olympiakos was enough to see Wolves through to the quarter-final of the Europa League.

    Raul Jimenez was the difference on the evening as Wolves reached their first quarter-finals of a European competition since 1972 as per Squawka.

    Just a minute into the game, Nuno Santos’ men could have opened the scoring but Jimenez shot just wide of the goal.

    Daniel Podence was given a rare start against his former side and would go on to decide a key part of the fixture.

    The youngster was proving a tough task for his former side as he was chasing down lost causes all over the pitch. One of them paid dividends for Wolves soon enough after poor defending from Olympiacos saw him fouled in the area.

    Jimenez scored the resulting penalty with ease, his 26th goal of the season in all competitions.

    Olympiacos got an equalizer towards the first half but the goal was ruled out after VAR intervention deemed it offside.

    The second half saw Wolves play out a bit tired and it was understandable. It was their 58th game in all competitions this season. Olympiacos dominated most of the game but could not convert any of their possession to a goal.

    The game ended with the single goal and saw the Premier League side qualify with a 2-1 aggregate.

    Wolves now have heavy-weight opponents for their quarter-final fixture as they will now face five-time winner Sevilla in their quest for European glory.
