Burnley vs Aberdeen
Europa League Qualifiers – Second Round 2nd Leg.
Date: Thursday, 2nd August 2018
Kick-off: 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Turf Moor (Burnley).
Burnley and Aberdeen restarts their Europa League fixture this Thursday with scores tied at 1-1, home teams certainly go in here with a better chance of qualifying to the third round.
Aberdeen had the lead for the majority of the match when these two met at the Pittodrie Stadium last week. A 19th minute penalty goal from Mackay-Steven put the Dons in front, but Burnley’s hopes were restored when Sam Voakes found the back of the net with 10 minutes left of the clock.
For a fair point of view, it is everything left to play. Still, knowing that Burnley are one of the toughest teams to break down at their own turf, we can only assume that it is going to be a tough night for Derek McInnes and his men.
It is clear that the hosts are heavy favorites to win the second leg tie and their strong record at stadium prompts the bookies to offer the home win on odds as short as 1/3.

Burnley vs Aberdeen Prediction
We are looking at another intense battle when these English and Scottish rivals meet at the Turf Moor this Thursday. Both sides had an excellent pre-season and the unbeaten run during the period keeps their morale and confidence high.
Aberdeen come from a league way behind the standards of English Premier League, but their disciplined performance in the first leg show that they cannot be underestimated.
The visitors certainly know that they cannot sit on the defense in order to qualify and therefore we are expected to see an open contest.
Burnley are not the best of defensive units, yet they have a knack of coming back from losing positions and thus both teams to score, over 2.5 goals and a 2-1 full-time win for the hosts come handy for punters.
