Diogo Jota has now scored six goals in his last two Europa League games
Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo accepts the club’s fans may start to dream of Europa League glory after his team took a huge step towards reaching the last 16 by thrashing Espanyol.
Diogo Jota scored a hat-trick for the second consecutive game in the competition and Ruben Neves hit a stunning long-range volley as they dominated the first leg of their last-32 tie at Molineux.
It was another impressive result in the competition for Wolves, who have not looked out of place in Europe despite an absence of 40 years.
Asked whether he felt the club’s fans are right to believe they could win the tournament, Nuno said: “They know me, now we have to recover, rest because we play on Sunday.
Wolves are fifth favourites with bookmakers to win the Europa League, with Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan tipped to lift the trophy this season.
