Ventspils v Aberdeen Betting Preview
UEFA Europa League 2nd Qualifying Round 2nd Leg
Location: Olimpiskā centra Ventspils Stadionā
Date: 21st July 2016
Aberdeen are well on their way to the next round where they will fancy their chances.
But they only need to look to their trip to Luxembourg in the last round to know that their job is not over. Despite taking a two goal lead to the European minnows they had to endure a nervy second half before squeezing through the tie.
There is no away goal this time around and that will make things a lot easier. Most of all the majority of observers considered Ventspils to be of a lower quality than the previous opposition. We can perhaps expect The Dons to go to Latvia and emphatically complete the task.
New signings made an immediate impact last week with Wes Burns and Jayden Stockley both scoring from the bench. Adam Rooney, in his first start, scored his second goal of the season already.
To be critical you could still raise doubts about the goalkeeping position. That’s an area that has likely got Derek McInnes still scouring the English leagues. But despite that Aberdeen are already looking stronger this season.
It would do Scottish football the world of good to have at least one team looking like they might trouble the group stages. Aberdeen are now the most likely after the next round draws where made last Friday.
Hearts and Celtic have difficult ties while Hibs look down and out. The Dons have a good chance of progression against either Maribor or Levski Sofia. That should focus the minds of everyone enough to see off Ventspils.
