How Wolverhampton Wanderers could line up against Braga

Ahead of Thursday's Europa League fixture between Braga and Wolverhampton Wanderers, Sports Mole looks at how the Premier League side could line up in Portugal.

Wolverhampton Wanderers take on Braga in the Europa League on Thursday evening knowing that a draw will be enough to earn their place in the last 32.

Having completed the double over Slovan Bratislava, Wolves now sit five points ahead of the Slovakian outfit with two matches to play.

However, defeat to Braga could potentially leave Nuno Espirito Santo's team requiring a point from their final Group K encounter with Besiktas.

Here, Sports Mole predicts how the West Midlands outfit may line up for the showdown at Estadio Municipal de Braga.

Doubtful: Morgan Gibbs-White (back), Ryan Bennett (groin)

With three Premier League fixtures to follow in the space of eight days, Nuno is expected to make a number of alterations to his starting lineup.

Romain Saiss is a likely starter due to his domestic suspension, with the Moroccan potentially being moved into midfield in order to hand a rest to either Ruben Neves or Joao Moutinho.

Max Kilman is expected to be picked at the back alongside Conor Coady and Leander Dendoncker, while Ruben Vinagre should feature at left wing-back.

Ryan Bennett is nearing a return from a groin problem, although no risks will be taken on the Englishman given Saiss's absence at the weekend.

As a result of his recent workload and being just one yellow card away from a ban, Raul Jimenez could drop down to the substitutes' bench for Patrick Cutrone.

Nuno may also want to manage the fitness of Adama Traore, meaning that the inclusion of Pedro Neto in attack is a possibility.
