Cape Town - Wolverhampton forward Raul Jimenez
insists the Premier League outfit will not take their Europa League
clash with Slovan Bratislava lightly on Thursday.
The Molineux club lost to Braga in their opening match in the competition but responded by seeing off Besiktas.
Slovan currently top Group K with four points, one ahead of Wolves in
third spot, and the Premier League club can give their qualification
hopes a huge boost with a win in Slovakia on Thursday.
Wolves are the favourites ahead of the match and punters may wish to
use their to back them to secure all three points, but Jimenez is taking
nothing for granted.
"We're going to have to go there thinking we can win this game
because they then have to come here to Molineux [on Matchday 4] and it's
a good opportunity to take a good advantage," he told the club website.
"But we know that they are playing well; they beat Besiktas, they
drew with Braga, so they're doing well, and we'll have to be careful and
face this game as another final - the way we face the Premier League
Wolves were held to a 1-1 draw by Southampton at home in the last
round of Premier League fixtures and they are unbeaten in six across all
The Bratislava club are unbeaten in nine overall and at home they
have an incredible record, with Slovan unbeaten in their last 34
competitive home games in a run stretching way back to April 2018.
