Wolves predicted Iineup v Celtic as Lopetegui starts want-away striker

Wolverhampton Wanderers will be facing Scottish Premiership champions Celtic in a pre-season friendly in Dublin on Saturday. This will be Wolves’ fifth pre-season fixture, and they will be looking to continue their momentum after four consecutive victories. They have scored six goals and conceded just one in July, with their recent 1-0 win over Porto being particularly impressive.

Celtic, however, will provide a tough test for Wolves. They lost only three league games in the previous season as they secured the Premiership title. With just three more games to go before the start of the Premier League season, Wolves are expected to field a strong side against Celtic. While there may be some rotation, the starting eleven is likely to include mostly first-team players rather than youngsters.

The predicted lineup for Wolves on Saturday includes goalkeeper Jose Sa, who seems to have regained Lopetegui’s trust to be the number one choice between the sticks. Matt Doherty, who hails from Ireland, is expected to start at right-back. Craig Dawson, who took Nathan Collins’ place in January, has been performing well and will be an important player for Wolves in the upcoming months. Max Kilman, who has recently been given the captain’s armband, will also be eager to continue the team’s winning streak.

This pre-season friendly against Celtic will be an important opportunity for Wolves to gauge their performance ahead of the new Premier League season. While the result may not be the most important factor, a strong performance against a top team like Celtic will boost confidence and provide valuable experience for the players. Wolves will be hoping to build on their successful pre-season campaign and carry that momentum into the start of the Premier League.
