Aberdeen vs Rijeka Match Preview
Rijeka opened the scoresheet from the spot and doubled the lead with a peach from Robert Muric very late in the first leg, now travelling to Aberdeen for the return match of their Europa League clash with a two-goal advantage and hoping they can build on the performance.
Whites have been thus built on a very solid streak but they’ve only seen it ended over the weekend, as they suffered a 2-0 loss at Gorica and dropped a point behind the 1. HNL pace-setters Dinamo Zagreb. They have seen their struggles on the road confirmed once again and Igor Biscan will have to find a cure.
Aberdeen have, on the other hand, struggled to bounce from a defeat they’ve suffered in Croatia and they come into the Thursday’s match with another disappointing display behind them, where they suffered a 1-0 loss at St Mirren – where an early opener made all the difference.
Dons have thus seen a solid streak through the pre-season and early campaign ended, so we feel they have a lot to work to do ahead of the fixture. They have been tougher at Pittodrie but overcoming Rijeka and making up for a 2-0 loss should prove a tough quest for them at this point.
We will back Rijeka to make their way to the Play-offs and we see them doing so unbeaten in Aberdeen, as we stick with a Double Chance – Draw or Away win at 4/7 with bet365 – which has caught the eye of many big hitters already.
We hope to see a tough defensive setup from the visitors once again and with that in mind, we don’t expect many goals now either. We’ll thus go for a low-scoring contest and Under 2.5 Goals FT, priced at 9/10 with Novibet and feeling like a generous pick.
