Competition: Europa League
Market: Aberdeen to win against Maribor
Odds: 6/5 @ Bet 365
Scottish Premiership side Aberdeen host Slovenian Prva Liga side NK Maribor at Pittodrie Stadium for the first leg of the third round of tonight’s Europa League qualifier.
The Dons are favourites to win the home leg this evening, and could put themselves in a great position ahead of the second leg to boost their hopes of progression to the playoffs.
Aberdeen reached this summer’s Europa League qualifiers after finishing second in the Scottish Premiership in 2015/16. They will fancy their chances against Maribor tonight with their home form being solid in the last year, losing just three of 19 games at Pittodrie.
Wins over Luxembourg side Fola Esch in the first round and a comfortable win over Latvian side Ventspils in the second round sees Aberdeen 180 minutes from the playoffs. Maribor stand in their way for now, however, but don’t have the best recent record in Europe.
The visitors failed to win a group game in the 2014/15 Champions League and lost in the second round of the Champions League qualifiers the following season. As a result, favourites Aberdeen are being backed by Bet 365 with odds of 6/5 to win against Maribor this evening.
