Rijeka News and Form

This is the entry point for Croatian side Rijeka in this season’s Europa League qualifiers. Last season they were runner up in their domestic league, by a massive 25 points to Dinamo Zagreb incidentally. They have started their new domestic season, winning three out of three played there so far.

Aberdeen outright win


In last season’s Europa League qualifiers Rijeka entered at this stage and lost 2-1 on aggregate against Norway’s Sarpsborg 08. Just back in the 2017/18 season, they made it to the Europa League group stage after failing to get through the Champions League qualifiers. That season Rijeka came third in their group. They are just W2 D2 L4 in their last eight European games.

Aberdeen News and Form

It was in the first qualifying round of this season’s Europa League where Aberdeen started. They took 2-1 wins in both legs against RoPS there. In the first leg of their second qualifying round tie, they only managed a 1-1 away draw at Chikhura. But then the Dons finished the job easily back on home soil with a 5-0 win at Pittodrie. Aberdeen opened their domestic league campaign on the weekend with a late 3-2 success over Hearts.

Even though they have been getting on the scoresheet, there still looks to be some improved sharpness in the final third of the pitch to come from them. Aberdeen are now W4 D2 L2 in their last eight European fixtures. Their away form in Europan action doesn’t make for the greatest reading because it is at W3 D1 L5. In that sequence of games, they failed to score in three matches, collecting two clean sheets. Aberdeen have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last four European away games.

Rijeka v Aberdeen Predictions

Rijeka to win: The Croatians will fancy their chances on home soil in this one and the away record of Aberdeen isn’t exactly great in the Europa League. There has to be a chance for the home side to sneak a win out of this one. Home win.
