English warrior Wolves survived a nervous night at Molineux to reach their first European quarter-final in 48 years as Raul Jimenez’s early penalty earned them a 2-1 aggregate win against Olympiakos in the Europa League. The Mexican’s precise eighth-minute effort, after Daniel Podence had been fouled by Olympiakos’ stand-in keeper Bobby Allain, was his 27th goal of the season.
Later in the match, Wolves’ rhythm was wrecked eight minutes later when wing-back Jonny suffered a knee injury which allowed Olympiakos to take control when Mady Camara had a first-half equaliser ruled out after a lengthy VAR check. In favour of Wolves and despite dominating possession and having more shots in total and more shots on target, the visitors could not breach Wolves’ defences. The match ended 2-1 on aggregate and the host was sent to the quarter final.
