Aberdeen v Burnley - Europa League

on Thu 26 Jul 2018, 11:04 am
Tonight sees premier League Burnley travel to Aberdeen for a Europa League Qualifier First leg.

It appears to be a bit of a mini battle of Britain as Scotland take on England. For me though it is a sad reflection on Scottish football that has become poor over the recent years since Ranger's tumbled to the bottom league and worked their way back up.  It is duly reflected in the fact that the second placed team in Scotland last year is qualifying for the Europa League.

Ultimately over two legs you can not see past Burnley winning this and reasonably easily. The only advantage Aberdeen could possibly have is that they have been involved in European football more recently than Burnley. They have qualified for the Europa League in the previous four seasons but again the lack of quality in Scottish football shines through as they have not got beyond the 3rd Qualifying Round. They went out last season to a team from Cyprus and one would not expect any different this season.

For Burnley it will be a good run out before the Premiership season begins and while Aberdeen may cause them a slight problem at Pittodrie they will no doubt claim the progression in the return leg if they don't win tonight.

1st Leg over and it's 1-1. 

It will  be Aberdeen's Cup Final in the return but I expect Burnley to win.
