Competition: Europa League
Market: Aberdeen to win against Ventspils
Odds: 4/5 @ Bet 365
Aberdeen travel to Ventspils Stadions to face Latvian side Ventspils in the second leg of the second round of Thursday’s Europa League qualifier, and are big favourites to come out on top to book their place in the third round of the preliminaries.
The Scottish Premiership outfit won the first leg 3-0 at home, and have one foot in the third round as a result going into the second leg this week, and will fancy their chances of winning in Latvia given the gulf in class between the two sides.
Ventspils last made the third round of the Europa League qualifiers in 2013, but suffered defeat to Maccabi Haifa without scoring a single goal. The manner of their first leg defeat to Aberdeen could well see history repeat themselves, but the scoreline is unlikely to be so open this time round.
Aberdeen thrashed their opponents in their own backyard, but the away leg is likely to be a tighter affair given the potentially difficult conditions of Ventspils Stadions. Nevertheless, the Scots are being backed by Bet 365 with odds of 4/5 to win against Ventspils.
