Aberdeen vs RoPS Rovaniemi Match Preview
After a very solid finish of their Premiership campaign, Aberdeen have struggled to pick their team spirits up through the pre-season – earning just two draws and a win in three games – and now host RoPS Rovaniemi for their 1st Qualifying Round clash in search of a more convincing setup.
Dons have thus been held off by Connah’s Quay (0-0) and Inverness CT (1-1) since late June and only beat Peterhead (0-2) along the way, which could be more worrying for Derek McInnes as his men kept conceding goals on the regular despite the attacking line delivering.
RoPS have struggled for consistency and while they’ll surely travel very motivated, it’s really hard to see them coping at Pittodrie sitting in the Veikkausliiga mid-table with just one win in their last six outings. Pasi Tuutti’s men have struggled to deliver in the final third and this was obviously holding them back, which could happen on the day as well.
They have scored on two of their last three trips, though, but Aberdeen should still be able to outgun them, even with high stakes and struggles to retain consistency early on. RoPS return to Europa League after three years but this could as well be the last they see of it for the campaign.
Indeed, Aberdeen have struggled to keep it together at the back lately and with that in mind, we’re now sticking our necks for a Home win here and a Yes on Both teams to score – which combines to an eye-catching 11/4 with bet365.
We thus hope to see goals and we’re also going for a high-scoring contest, where Over 2.5 Goals FT feels like a generous pick at 4/5 with Unibet – especially for those keeping faith RoPS can make it on the scoresheet as well.
