Line-ups: Wolves v Torino

Torino rely on Andrea Belotti and Simone Zaza, but need a miracle to overturn a 3-2 first leg defeat against Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Europa League play-off.

It kicks off at Molineux in Wolverhampton at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT).

Belotti’s late penalty has at least given the Granata some hope of turning this around, but they need to win by two clear goals, or score at least three and hope for the best.

Cristian Ansaldi was run ragged in the first leg by Adama Traore and he is out injured this time, while Nicolas Nkoulou has been left out after trying to force a transfer.

It means Ola Aina steps in after his Africa Cup of Nations exploits, with Kevin Bonifazi taking over at centre-back rather than Koffi Djidji.

Tomas Rincon is finally fit enough for a place in the starting XI after an extended vacation due to the Copa America with Venezuela.

Belotti and Zaza lead a 3-5-2 formation for Walter Mazzarri’s side, introducing Sasa Lukic rather than Alex Berenguer.

Wolves make changes from the first leg, as Jonny Castro returns to the starting XI after he was benched at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino, but Ruben Neves is again ignored.

Former Milan striker Patrick Cutrone is again only a substitute, as Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota lead the attack.

There is no VAR in the Europa League, but the Spanish officials are Jesus Gil Manzano, assistants Diego Barbero Sevilla and Angel Nevado Rodriguez, with Juan Martinez as the Fourth Official.
