Our tipsters have their sights on an intense high-energy showdown for a Europa League play-off match at the Pittodrie Stadium today.

The final round of continental cup football games takes place today before we turn over focus to the weekend fixtures.

For Thursday’s bet of the day, we have our eyes on the upcoming Europa League play-off between Aberdeen and Hacken at the Pittodrie Stadium. A comprehensive review of team statistics and current form has led us to believe that Over 2.5 goals is a worthwhile pick.

🎲 Bet of the Day: Aberdeen vs Hacken

From two goals down, Aberdeen fought back to scrap a 2-2 first-leg draw against Hacken last week. It was the second time these two teams both scored and saw Over 3.5 goals in their three meetings. They now swing over to Scotland for the second leg. All eyes will be on Aberdeen, who thrashed Hacken 5-1 when the Swedish team last visited Pittodrie Stadium in July 2021.

Last Sunday, Aberdeen took a second straight 2-2 draw. They visited St Mirren in the Premiership, needing a late penalty to snatch a point. The Dons have now gone four games with both teams scoring. Seven of their previous eight competitive outings returned Over 2.5 goals.

Over 3.5 goals have occurred in seven of Hacken’s last eight games. BTTS was the right pick in each of the Swedish team’s past three matches as well. They head to Aberdeen on the back of a 4-2 defeat to IFK Goteborg last Sunday, which ended a five-game unbeaten run.
