Aberdeen vs Rijeka Match Betting Tip

1st leg – 3:0

Aberdeen welcome Rijeka to Pittodrie to contest the second leg of the Europa League second round qualifiers on Thursday night and the match is no more than a formality following the Scottish side’s 3-0 away victory during the first leg.

Aberdeen produced a marvelous away performance against a dangerous Rijeka side to claim a 3-0 victory during the first leg at Stadion Kantrida last Thursday and the Scots are certainly in the driver’s seat to progress into the next round of the Europa League qualifiers.

Despite the victory though, Derek McInnes will be hoping that his side can seal their progression into the next round with as little drama as possible and without any suspensions or injuries.

It is very likely that McInnes will go with the same side with dominated Rijeka in the previous clash but goalscorer Kenny McLean is in with a shout to make a start on the night.

Rijeka were stunned after being hammered 3-0 in front of their own fans during the first leg clash last week but the Croatian side were arguably the architects of their own downfall.

Following such an abysmal performance, Rijeka virtually stand no chance of earning qualification into the next round of the competition but with manager Matjaz Kek coming under intense pressure, the 53-year old will surely demand his players to salvage some pride during the return leg.

Goalkeeper Ivan Vargic endured a torrid night during the first leg and there is a possibility that he could be dropped in favour of Simon Sluga for the tie in Scotland.

Aberdeen vs Rijeka Match Prediction

Aberdeen’s healthy advantage from the first leg means that they are overwhelming favourites heading into the return leg at Pittodrie.

The match will undoubtedly be tougher than the test Aberdeen faced in the previous clash as Rijeka are looking to make amends but the Scottish side should be able to see the job through comfortably.
