AGENCIES: Wolves is in a good position to qualify for the Europa League group stage for the first time after clinching a win over Torino 3-2 in a match held in Italy.

The visitors went ahead when Joao Moutinho’s free-kick was headed into his own net by Torino’s Gleison Bremer.

Diogo Jota doubled the advantage as he finished after Adama Traore’s pass.

Lorenzo de Silvestri pulled one back, Raul Jimenez’s calm finish restored Wolves’ two-goal lead before Andrea Belotti’s late penalty for Torino.

The two teams meet again at Molineux on August 29 with the winners of this play-off tie moving into the main group phase of the competition.

Wolves, playing in their first European campaign since 1980-81, will advance if they avoid defeat or only lose by one goal in a low-scoring second leg.
