Wolverhampton Wanderers concluded their last season in a disastrous manner. In their last six outings, they lost four matches and drew two. Their final position in the Premier League table was 10th with just 51 points to their name. Coach, Bruno Lage undoubtedly has a lot of work to do if his side are to perform better in the upcoming campaign and earn a top half finish. Wolves’ fan would be disappointed with the club’s lack of activity in the transfer window as of now and will hope that the club makes the most of the remaining transfer window.
As for Alaves, last season couldn’t have been worse. They were relegated to the second tier of Spanish football, the Segunda division after six years in the top flight. The club finished bottom in La Liga and have lot of planning to do to make a strong case to return to La Liga next season. Alaves begin their 2022/23 season away to Leganes in August.
Wolves will be concerned by the fact that Adama Traore won’t be available for the match due to a hamstring issue. He joins Chiquinho in the list of absentees for Wolverhampton Wanderers. While, Alaves will have a full roster to select from and will hope to give maximum players game time.
