The Wolves of Adama Traoré started the Premier 2020-21 winning at Bramall Lane against Sheffield United that dominated much of the second half, but without the ability to react to come back against an opponent that led 0-2 from minute 6 thanks to goals from Raúl Jiménez and Romain Saiss. It was a great afternoon for the Mexican attacker: Jiménez arrived this Monday at 100 games with the Wolves jersey.
They faced the two teams that became revelations last season in the English championship, Sheffield United and Wolves. And Wolves (who lost 0-1 in the Europa League quarterfinals against Sevilla) resolved their match in six minutes. Raúl Jiménez scored in 3 ‘and Saiss scored in 6’. 0-2 and that was the final result. Not even those of Chris Wilder could react, although in the second half they had opportunities (the clearest, the work of John Fleck).
Raúl Jiménez scored with a right kick after taking advantage of a ball sent by Daniel Podence. The former Mexican striker from Atlético (author of 17 ‘goals’ in the last Premier) had more chances, such as when he crashed the ball outside the post in the second half.
Wolves’ second goal by a recently renewed Nuno was scored by Saiss thanks to a header from a corner kick served by Pedro Neto. Saiss not only scored but also played a great game on defense.
Adama Traoré, meanwhile, shone in the final stretch by starring in a great play in a boarding school, although the final shot was slightly off the mark and could not increase the Wolves account.
