Aberdeen vs Breidablik
UEFA Europa Conference League Qualification,
Date: Thursday, 12 August 2021
Kick-off 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Pittodrie Stadium.
Aberdeen have a one-goal advantage heading into the second leg of their UEFA Europa Conference League tie with Icelandic Breidablik.
Aberdeen have a nice opportunity to reach the playoffs round of a European competition in Stephen Glass’ first full season at the helm.
The Dons have never made it to the last step in an eight-year spell under Derek McInnes.
Aberdeen generally got off to a fabulous start to the new season. They opened the Scottish Premiership with back-to-back wins over Dundee United (2-0) and Livingston (2-1), conceding only one goal in the process.
Moving forward, they stormed past Swedish Hacken at the beginning of their European journey (5-3 on aggregate in the previous round of the UEFA Europa Conference League).
Christian Ramirez is enjoying a fabulous spell of form these days. The American forward completed a brace in the last week’s win at Breidablik. He now has three goals in three European appearances and one goal in two Premiership games.
Ramirez was rested (played only the final 30 minutes) in the weekend’s away win at Livingston and he is ready to shine against the Icelandic opposition once again.
The visitors made a huge shock by eliminating Austria Vienna in the previous round. However, they will struggle to repeat the feat against the highly-motivated and in-form Scots here.
Aberdeen vs Breidablik Head-to-head
- This will be the second head to head outing between these two rivals.
- As mentioned above, Aberdeen celebrated a 2-3 victory in the first leg of this UEFA Europa Conference League tie, played last week on Iceland.
Aberdeen vs Breidablik Prediction
Breidablik’s defense revealed way too many holes last week against Aberdeen. The Icelandic side failed to keep a clean sheet in five of the last six games in all competitions. They shipped three at home against the Dons last time out and we can hardly see them keeping things tight at the back in this reverse fixture either.
Backing goals should be the safest bet here. We’ll take the Over 3.5 goals FT as the main betting option at the odds of 2.15, while you can also back Aberdeen to win & Both Teams To Score at the 2.75 odds.
