All square in the Slovakian capital

Slovan Bratislava vs Wolverhampton Wanderers Betting Tips – UEFA Europa League, 24th October 17.55pm

After a sluggish start to the season, Nuno Espirito Santo’s Wolverhampton Wanderers are starting to find their feet, as they head to Slovakia on Thursday unbeaten in their last six in all competitions. Slovan Bratislava and Braga lead the way in UEFA Europa League Group K with four points each, with Wolves a point behind in third. Thursday’s clash at Tehelne pole in Bratislava should be a cracker, but can the English side leave Slovakia with a win?

Slovan Bratislava News and Form – Can the Slovakians extend unbeaten run in Group K?

Slovan Bratislava have surprised many by taking four points from their opening two Europa League group fixtures. The Slovakian side kicked off their campaign with an excellent 4-2 home win over Turkish giants Besiktas. Jan Kozak’s men then drew 2-2 with Braga at the Estadio Municipal in Portugal, scoring three minutes from time to pick up a priceless point.

Slovan won the Fortuna Liga in Slovakia last season, which was their ninth league crown but their first since 2014. Bratislava lead the way in Slovakia’s top flight again at present, winning an impressive nine of their 12 league fixtures so far.

Kozak’s side are difficult to play against at Tehelne pole, and after their 4-2 success over Besiktas on matchday one, Slovan will be looking for another home win on Thursday. 4/1 for the Bratislava victory seems a very generous price.

Wolverhampton Wanderers News and Form – A tough night waits for Wolves

Nuno’s Wolverhampton Wanderers have certainly turned a corner of late. Wolves failed to win any of their opening six in the Premier League, drawing four and losing two, but they are now unbeaten in four (two wins, two draws). Before the international break, Wanderers picked up a famous 2-0 win over Premier League champions Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Wolves started the Europa League group stage with a disappointing 1-0 defeat to Braga at Molineux. However, they hit back with a dramatic victory against Besiktas at Vodafone Park in Istanbul a few weeks ago, with Willy Boly scoring the winner in the 93rd minute.

Wanderers, who finished seventh in the Premier League last term, are starting to look much more like their usual selves. Can Wolves secure their second victory in Europa League Group K on Thursday?

Slovan Bratislava vs Wolverhampton Wanderers Predictions

Draw: On paper, this is a tough test for Wolves. The visitors may head to Slovakia as the odds-on favourites with the bookies, but Slovan are a tough nut to crack at Tehelne pole in the Slovakian capital. I fancy the home team to hold Wolves to a draw on Thursday night. The stalemate is priced at 11/4.

Raul Jimenez has scored nine times in 18 appearances for club and country this season. However, his penalty in Wolves’ 1-1 league draw with Southampton last weekend was his first goal since September 1st. Jimenez scored goals for fun in the Europa League qualifying rounds, netting six times in six games. Wolves’ Mexican striker is available at 15/4 to open the scoring in Bratislava on Thursday night.
