Leander Dendocker's late strike kept Wolves' European dreams alive after a 1-0 win over Fulham.
Watched by WWE wrestler Sin Cara, a friend of striker Raul Jimenez, Dendoncker landed the knockout blow against the doomed Cottagers.
Diogo Jota had earlier wasted three fine openings and Dendoncker hit the bar before his winner at Molineux.
The quiet Ryan Sessegnon wriggled onto Cyrus Christie's throughball and cut back for Mitrovic, only for the striker to blaze over from 10 yards.
It spurred Wolves into action and Rico palmed Ruben Neves' 25-yard drive behind and a minute later Rico got a vital touch to Matt Doherty's far-post header.
And Fulham were made to pay for Mitrovic's miss when Dendocker struck with 15 minutes left.
Moutinho's neat pass slipped Doherty in and he crossed for the onrushing midfielder to guide a cushioned volley into the corner from 10 yards.
Fulham were beaten and Jota almost added a second when his fierce half volley hit the bar.
But the Cottagers did create some history when Harvey Elliott, aged 16 years and 30 days, became the Premier League's youngest ever player after coming on as a late substitute.
