Wolves beat Olympiacos to book Sevilla quarter-final

Wolves have advanced to the quarter-finals of the Champions League with a 1-0 win over Olympiakos on Thursday.

The English outfit won the tie 2-1 overall after the victory at Molineux.

Raul Jimenez scored the decisive goal from the penalty with just eight minutes played.

They will face Sevilla in the final eight in Duisburg, Germany on Tuesday evening.

Speaking after the game, Wolves skipper Coady was looking forward to facing the Spanish club in the next round.

"It was really tough," Coady told BT Sport. "We played against a top class side and we knew how hard it would be after going to Athens.

"I thought the lads were fantastic and we managed the game very well. It's an incredible night for this football club and a night we won't forget.

"It's amazing and we are here as players to help the club improve. We love playing for the manager and we were able to frustrate them. We scored a great goal in the first half and that gave us the confidence to keep going. It's a huge game coming against Sevilla next."
