Whatever happens in the final round of fixtures, one thing is certain.
Wolves are the best team in this group.
Sure, Braga are a resilient, competent outfit as showcased by a gutsy second-half comeback tonight.
But when Wolves turned it on, the gulf in class was immediately evident.
All three goals were a thing of beauty, in particular, the Doherty header from a sumptuous Jimenez pass to turn the game on its head.
Then Traore roaring through and finishing in the manner you always hope he will. That one felt the knockout blow.
Much like Sunday, we should have been over the hills and far away before even the prospect of a comeback was possible.
It was training ground stuff once their fortuitous opener had been cancelled out and Wolves had marched into the ascendency.
Even after the interval when you expected Braga to burst out the blocks, it was the away side piling forward and looking the more likely.
Had Jota’s header not been turned away following more Traore magic – that would have been that.
The game drifted for a 15-minute spell though and the disappointment is that Braga didn’t really have to do much to get back on level terms.
With the front three all sacrificed at this point, the prospect of a winner was fanciful, but credit to the lads who came on, in particular Neto who looked very sharp and probably should have been given a penalty.
I still believe we’ll win the group if we can grind out the win against Besiktas, but if we don’t so what?
We’re through already – another milestone for this wonderful team – and have nothing to fear in the knockout stages.
We’ll take anyone on and on current form, nobody will want to play Wolves.
