Probable line-ups: Wolves-Torino (3-2 agg.)

Andrea Belotti and Simone Zaza are tasked with firing Torino to a sensational comeback against Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Europa League playoffs.

Belotti scored a penalty in the first leg, taking his Europa League tally to five, but neither he nor strike partner Zaza could not prevent a 3-2 home defeat.

The result ensured Wolves went into the return fixture with three away goals to their name.

The Granata’s problems have also been worsened by the loss of defensive duo Cristian Ansaldi and Nicolas Nkoulou, the latter of whom is demanding to be sold.

Ansaldi’s place on the left wing should be taken by Ola Aina, while Koffi Djidji should fill in for Nkoulou at the back.

Wolves, meanwhile, are set to start Ruben Neves and Jonny Castro after they were benched for the first leg, although Patrick Cutrone is unlikely to join them.

This is not uncharted territory for Toro after they overcame a 2-2 home draw with Athletic Bilbao in 2015, winning 3-2 at San Mames to reach the last 16.

Wolverhampton Wanderers (probable): Rui Patricio; Vallejo, Coady, Boly; Traore, Dendoncker, Neves, Moutinho, Jonny; Jimenez, Jota

Torino (probable): Sirigu; Izzo, Bremer, Djidji; De Silvestri, Baselli, Rincon, Aina; Berenguer; Zaza, Belotti
