  • GOOOAAALLL! Wolves take the lead, it's 1-0! Lovely flick on by Jimenez at the near post as a corner from Moutinho is whipped towards the near post and Jota is in the right place, at the right time, to slide the ball into the back of the net from close range. It takes a big deflection off Sanchez on its way on though.

  • Iturraspe is just shown a yellow card after a clash with Jota, the Espanyol man fouls Jota and the Wolves winger reacts angrily and the two clash heads, with Iturraspe appearing to lunge forward with his head. However, only a yellow is shown, despite the appeals from the Wolves players.

  • GOOOAAALLL! What a goal by Neves! Wolves double their lead, it's 2-0! Espanyol thought they'd cleared the danger, as the ball flies out to Neves on the edge of the box, but Neves chests it down and then volleys it straight into the top left-hand corner of the net. Terrific volley by the midfielder, with Prieto having no chance of saving it!

  • GOOOAAALLL! Jota makes it 3-0 to Wolves! Another goal for Jota and that's surely the game wrapped up now and sets up Wolves very nicely for the return leg next week. It's lovely build-up play between Doherty and Jimenez, with the right-back then playing the ball through the Espanyol defence to Jota, who smashes it into the top corner of the net, with a slight deflection taking it out of the path of Prieto.
