Six years after their first approach, Wolves finally have their man, but new head coach Julen Lopetegui will only be a spectator for their Carabao Cup third round clash with Leeds tonight. With six defeats from their last eight games, the Wanderers are in awful form, and now seems as bad a time as any to face Jesse Marsch’s men. Read on to find out how to watch a Wolves vs Leeds live stream from wherever you are.
Wolves have rung in the changes, with Montenegrin stopper Matija Sarkic selected in place of first-choice goalkeeper José Sá, and 20-year-old Irishman Joe Hodge making his first start in midfield. Connor Ronan is the other unfamiliar name in the lineup, and between him and skipper Rúben Neves, Wolves fans can expect to see plenty of long-range hits fly towards goal.
Leeds have also opted to give their No.1 a night off, so the towering veteran Joel Robles makes his first appearance for the club. Teenagers Leo Hjelde and Darko Gyabi get their chance to impress the boss, while Joe Gelhardt, who's been something of a super sub, gets to lead the line from the off.
Date: Wednesday, November 9
Kick-off time: 7.45pm GMT / 2.45pm ET / 11.45am PT / 6.45am AEDT / 8.45am NZDT
Venue: Molineux Stadium, Wolverhampton

Positives have been in such short supply for Wolves fans this season that scoring twice on Saturday – in a game they still managed to lose – counts as a big step in the right direction. It was the first time they'd netted more than once in a game since a 2-1 victory over Preston in August. They’ve won just two more games since.
Leeds, who came from behind to beat them 2-1 on the opening weekend of the season, have propelled themselves up the Premier League table by stringing together back-to-back victories for the first time in three months, though it certainly hasn't been plain sailing.
Some of their defending can be politely described as atrocious, though their attacking play has more than made up for it. Youngsters Crysencio Summerville, Sam Greenwood and Gelhardt have stepped up to the plate, and the combination of defensive calamities and last-gasp heroics makes them one of the most entertaining sides around.
It's a team that can't score against one that can't defend. What could go wrong? Wherever you are, find out how today's game pans out by tuning into a Wolves vs Leeds live stream.

We've set out how you can live stream Wolves vs Leeds in a number of countries around the world.
