Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Bravida Arena will host Thursday’s Europa League game between Hacken and Aberdeen, the two teams who meet once again in European competitions. When the two teams faced each other in the Conference League two seasons ago, Aberdeen eliminated Hacken in the double-header, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge. The Swedes are brimming with confidence following four consecutive wins in all competitions and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play.
The Dons, on the other hand, have yet to record a win in the new Scottish Premiership campaign and given their shaky defence, we predict that the hosts are going to emerge triumphant in the first leg. In their last encounter at Bravida Arena Hacken defeated Aberdeen 2-0, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered. Both Angus MacDonald and Rhys Williams should be the only absentees in the visiting team.
Highlighted Team (Aberdeen):
Nicknamed the Dons, Aberdeen are professional football club that compete in the Scottish Premiership. Pittodrie Stadium is the club’s home ground, and it can hold up to 20,866 spectators. The Dons were one of the dominant forces in Scottish football during Sir Alex Ferguson’s era, with the team winning three Scottish League titles from 1980 to 1985.
However, Aberdeen clinched their first domestic trophy in the 1954/55 season, with the team finishing the process three points clear of Scottish giants Celtic. The club’s biggest success came in the 1982/83 season when they defeated the famous Spanish club Real Madrid 2-1 in the title game. Later in 1983, Aberdeen won the UEFA Super Cup as they defeated Hamburger SV 2-0 at Volksparkstadion.
The Dons are well known for their red home kit, while away shirt has a shiny gold base colour. Inverness Caledonian are considered one of the club’s biggest rivals, with the two teams facing each other in the North derby.
