Aberdeen passed two obstacles in the Europa League qualifiers without major problems but now they are on verge of elimination.

They underperformed against Rijeka in the 1st leg and were defeated by 2-0, which is a very difficult result to annul. In the last half hour of match they have received both goals on top of which came their first defeat in the Scottish Premiership by St. Mirren. Again, Aberdeem failed to score and St. Mirren won by 1-0. Aberdeen played without injured forward Cosgrove, who will also skip this match with Rijeka.

Rijeka did a great job in the 1st round and now they are on verge to reach the play-off, but of course they mustn’t relax too early. Aberdeen is tough opponent when playing at home and noting is over although Rijeka has a really good result from the first match and they shouldn’t blow the chance. They were patient in the 1st leg when no goals were scored after one hour, and then they took a lead from penalty. Near the end they scored the second goal and won. The victory exhausted them emotionally and they suffered the first defeat in the Croatian First League last weekend. They played away with Gorizia and lost by 2-0, where the team underwent several changes.
Probable lineups HNK Rijeka: Prskalo – Kvrzic, Zuparic, Puncec, Tomecak – Lepinjica, Capan, Halilovic – Muric, Loncar, Colak
Betting Pick: Aberdeen vs HNK Rijeka
Aberdeen je u velikom zaostatku koji će pokušati anulirati na svom terenu. Rijeka je pokazala snagu, ali će im sada biti puno teže i teško da mogu ostvariti još jednu pobjedu. Gosti su bliže prolazu, međutim, bliže pobjedi u ovom duelu je domaćin.
Pick: Asian handicap 0 Aberdeen
Odds: 1.75 at betvictor (down to 1.65 can be played)
