Bet Of The Day August 31 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.

Key Points

  • Aberdeen have won six of their last eight home games
  • Aberdeen have kept a clean sheet in six of their last seven home games
  • Aberdeen have only lost to Celtic, Rangers & St Mirren in the last 12 months at home
  • Aberdeen beat Hacken 5-1 at home two years ago in Conference League qualifying
  • Aberdeen came back to draw 2-2 with Hacken last week on the road and have all the momentum here

We’re off to Europa League qualifying for today’s best bet as Aberdeen look to secure their spot in the competition proper with a home clash against Hacken from Sweden.

Aberdeen appeared on the brink of elimination when they went down 2-0 on the road in the first leg, but they showcased great resolve to come back with a 2-2 draw and now have all the momentum at home.

Aberdeen are extremely tough to beat and break down at their Pittodrie Stadium, barely losing at the ground over the last 12 months.

Indeed, since August 28 last season, outside of Celtic and Rangers, Aberdeen have only lost to St Mirren. The Dons have won six of their last eight home games in the SPL, losing only to Celtic.

Additionally, Aberdeen’s defence at Pittodrie has been immense, keeping a clean sheet in six of their last seven games, again only conceding to Celtic.

Hacken aren’t as good as the Scottish champions and playing on the road in a part of the world they are not used to will be challenging.

Importantly, it was only two years ago when Aberdeen crushed Hacken 5-1 at home in Conference League qualifying, to the Dons know they can outclass their Swedish opponents here.

Aberdeen at $2.80 to win inside 90 minutes looks good, but we’ll give ourselves some insurance and back the Dons to simply qualify from the tie at $2.00.
