Traore thinks Wolves have advantage over Braga

Wolves winger Adama Traore says the club have the edge over Braga ahead of their Europa League clash on Thursday.

The Premier League club have a massive Portuguese contingent, including coach Nuno Espirito Santo.

And Traore thinks the knowledge of Portuguese football will work in Wolves' favour.

He said: "The coach comes from Portuguese football and so do many of our players.

"We know about Portuguese football, we know the Portuguese culture.

"They know the players and the league, and they have played teams like Braga many times before.

"We will accept any help we can as we attempt to keep moving forward to become a better team.

"It has to help that we know so much about them and they don't know so much about us.

"It's the same for me if I play a Spanish team – I come from there and I know their mentality.

"That has to help if you know the mentality of your opponent, and how he wants to play."
