Siroki Brijeg v Aberdeen: Back away-day specialists to win in Bosnia

| 20.07.2017

A 1-1 draw at home would be a disappointing first-leg result for most sides in Europe, but Aberdeen’s sensational away record means we’re tipping the Reds to triumph at Siroki Brijeg on Thursday night. And everything suggests it’ll be a rip-roaring encounter.

The Dons have won all of their last six away games, netting an eye-catching 22 goals in the process – and triumphing at tough venues like Ibrox and Tynecastle.

That means we like the 7/5 for the visitors in the match betting, with Plavi 9/5 to win on the night, and 15/8 to finish level in 90 minutes.

However, with the visitors so high-scoring on their travels and Siroki Brijeg having netted in four of their last five games, we think the 9/2 for Aberdeen to win and Both Teams to Score offers better value.

If you fancy a safer bet, the 13/10 for this game to produce Over 2.5 Goals looks like easy money, while 10/3 says we see Over 3.5 notched up.

One man who looks likely to register for the Ladbrokes Premiership side is Ryan Christie.

The talented loanee struck in the opening leg, taking his tally to six goals in seven outings. He’s 19/10 to net anytime, while 11/2 says he opens the scoring for the fourth time in nine games.

For the hosts, veteran Wagner Lago netted 11 times in 2016-17, so the 14/5 for the Brazilian to score anytime against the Reds could prove a savvy selection.
