Whilst Wolves will be travelling back to Molineux to face Torino with a one-goal lead and three away goals, last night wasn’t all about the positives. Adama Traore at right-wing-back seemed to play well, but Ruben Vinagre on the other side was lacklustre.
Nuno Espirito Santo got most things right in the 3-2 win, although his side would have come away with a 3-1 win and been in a much better position than they are now had Vinagre not given away a cheap penalty late in the game in Turin, which Andrea Belotti scored to make it 3-2.
Ultimately, Wolves still have a lead and are in the much better position in this tie ahead of the second leg, Vinagre was seemingly more harm than good in the tie, and perhaps it wouldn’t be a shock if Jonny Otto was the man called upon when Torino travel to Wolverhampton next Thursday, especially seeing as Vinagre only got a 4/10 rating in The Express and Star’s player ratings.

Oh yeah Vinagre was poor all night no doubt, daft tackle and all, nowhere near the ball

Both goals Vinagre’s fault

Great win and an astute performance. Vinagre was poor and showed his inexperience but it’ll come.

Not bad. Gave away two sloppy goals but will make the game at Molineux very interesting. Traore was insane. Vinagre poor. pic.twitter.com/WGh5dfZchI
