Line-ups: Torino v Wolves

Andrea Belotti and Simone Zaza lead the way as Torino host Patrick Cutrone’s Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Europa League play-off.

The first leg kicks off at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino at 20.00 UK time.

It is almost a complete sell-out for this match, including approximately 1,500 travelling Wolves supporters.

This represents the final hurdle on the way to the Europa League proper, having gone through two preliminary rounds against Debrecen (7-1 agg) and Shakhtyor Soligorsk (6-1 agg).

Wolves reached this phase by beating Crusaders (6-1 agg) and Pyunik Erewan (8-0 agg).

Walter Mazzarri again uses Zaza to partner Belotti, with Alex Berenguer in support and Cristian Ansaldi on fine form this summer.

Lyanco, Iago Falque, Vittorio Parigini and Simone Edera are out injured.

Wolves have former Milan striker Cutrone on the bench, after he came on for only the last few minutes of their 1-1 Premier League draw with Manchester United.

Instead, Diogo Jota and Raul Jimenez form the attack, with Joao Moutinho providing midfield experience.

Ruben Neves is certainly one to watch, particularly for his shots from distance, but he is surprisingly on the bench.

Torino: Sirigu; Izzo, Nkoulou, Bremer; De Silvestri, Baselli, Meite, Berenguer, Ansaldi; Zaza, Belotti

Torino bench: Rosati, Lukic, Bonifazi, Millico, Djidji, Aina, Rincon

Wolverhampton Wanderers: Rui Patricio; Vallejo, Coady, Boly; Traore, Dendoncker, Moutinho, Saiss, Ruben Vinagre; Raul Jimenez, Diogo Jota

Wolves bench: Ruddy, Bennett, Pedro Neto, Ruben Neves, Cutrone, Gibbs-White, Jonny
