Europa League at Bet Victor

The 2nd legs of the 2nd qualifying round of the Europa League continue on Thursday night with Scottish side, Aberdeen, taking on Georgian outfit, Chikhura, as the betting tips continue at Pittodrie.

Aberdeen Prediction – Can Aberdeen finish job at Pittodrie?

Aberdeen appear to have done the hard work by avoiding defeat in last week’s 1st leg away at Chikhura at the Boris Paichadze Dinamo Arena.

They now return to Pittodrie where they’ll be looking to grab the all-important win in order to progress to the 3rd qualifying round of the Europa League.

Even though the Scottish Premiership season doesn’t start until this weekend, Aberdeen have played 6 matches already in their new campaign.

Three friendlies resulted in draws against Connah’s Quay and Inverness Thistle along with a 2-0 win away at Peterhead.

In addition, Aberdeen secured a 4-2 aggregate win over Finnish outfit, RoPS, in the previous round of the Europa League.

Having avoided defeat in the recent away leg of this tussle with Chikhura, The Dons now appear to be in the driving seat to win this tie.

However, of their last 15 matches on home turf, Aberdeen have won by 3 goals or more just once, which was a 4-1 win over Championship side, Queen of the South in the FA Cup.

And although Aberdeen are unbeaten in their last 10 home ties in the Europa League, they’ve won just 1 of these 10 by a margin of 3 goals or more.

Chikhura Prediction – Can Chikhura make life difficult?

Although Chikhura were held to a 1-1 draw at home by tonight’s opponents, Aberdeen, in last week’s 1st leg, the visitors are still capable of springing a surprise here.

The recent draw with the Scottish Premiership side extended Chikhura’s unbeaten run in all competitions to 5 matches overall.

This sequence includes a 4-1 home win over Dila in the Georgian Erovnuli Liga, along with a 4-2 aggregate win in the previous round of the Europa League.

This win came against Luxembourg outfit, Fola Esch, winning 2-1 in both the home and away legs, so perhaps a trip to Aberdeen may not be as daunting for the visitors as many expect.

Switch to results away from home and you’ll find that Chikhura have managed to win just 3 of their last 15 away matches in all competitions.

However, the visitors have lost only 1 of these last 15 matches on the road by a margin of 3 goals or more – a 5-0 loss away at Dinamo Moscow in a friendly back in February.

Chikhura have also lost just twice in their 10 away matches to date in the Europa League, and have never been beaten by 3 goals or more.

  • Aberdeen are unbeaten in their last 10 home ties in the Europa League
  • Aberdeen have won by 3 goals or more in just 1 of these 10 ties though
