Gers to fall short in Croatia

319

Rangers were unconvincing in beating Shkupi in the opening round of Europa League qualifying and could come unstuck against Osijek.

Osijek to win at 5/4

Steven Gerrard has revamped the Ibrox squad this summer and the chance to play European football will undoubtedly have tempted a number of the players he’s recruited to move north of the border.

Although a domestic challenge is likely to be Gerrard’s priority, continental progress to the group stages for the first time since 2011 will also boost his profile but as we have heard before, Croatia is a tough place to visit as an away footballer.

Osijek defeated Petrocub Hincesti in the last round and can take advantage of an inexperienced Rangers side, who have not won a European tie for 10 years.

The Bijelo-plavi will make life tough for the Gers and can gain a first leg advantage here.

Burnley to win to zero @ 6/4

It has been optimistically labelled the ‘Battle of Britain’ and although Aberdeen and Burnley’s meeting tonight may not have as much significance as its namesake, both of these clubs will be going for broke.

The pair face off at Pittodrie in what will be the Clarets’ first European outing for 51 years and they face a team who have been here before, but are still to reach the group stages.

Sean Dyche has promised to take this game seriously and I think they can upset a Dons side who do not share their class.
