Aberdeen vs Runavik Betting Predictions and Odds
In the first qualifying round for the UEFA Europa League there are tons of exotic football players, including NSÍ Runavík. The third placed last season in the Faroe Islands is certainly one of the biggest underdogs in the field and did not have the necessary bit of luck on his side during the draw.
Not only that the black and yellow have to play away, the opponent definitely has it in itself. Before the game of Aberdeen vs Runavik clearly beat the odds of the best bookmakers in the direction of the home side, who are to be assessed more strongly in all respects. Even if the probability of potential surprises increases somewhat due to the omission of the second leg, a one-sided course of the game can be expected on Thursday evening.
The decisive question before the unequal encounter is therefore how the tip on the traditional Scottish club between Aberdeen and Runavik can be appropriately combined in order to get a decent or even attractive value.

Aberdeen – Statistics & Current Form
Due to its long and successful history, which includes a success in the European Cup Winners’ Cup, one in the European Supercup (both 1983) and 17 national titles, the Aberdeen Football Club is undoubtedly one of the more illustrious names in the first Europa League qualifying round. However, the status as a traditional team is not yet a free ticket to the next round.
A look at the results underscores the fact that in the past the Scots often had problems convincing on the international stage. Since 2008 (at that time still in the UEFA Cup), the red and whites have not been represented in a main European Cup competition. In the last seven attempts, the Dons failed in the Europa League qualification, five times in round three.
Aberdeen with two wins from their first three Premiership games
In 2020/21, the team of long-time coach Derek McInnes has to run in round one. The reason was the fourth place in the previous Premiership season, which should be improved again in the current season if possible. In the short to medium term, the Dons see themselves as the third force in Scotland, which they were able to prove in their first three matches. After a narrow 0-1 defeat at the start against the Glasgow Rangers, the red-whites won in St. Johnstone and at home against Livingston.
The third competitive game within seven days is only necessary on Thursday because the McInnes-Elf has meanwhile been taken out of play due to a violation of the league’s hygiene rules. In view of the home advantage, the good form and the clear quality advantages, the slightly increased burden does not change the fact that a clear home win is predicted between Aberdeen and Runavik according to the odds.
Probable formation of Aberdeen:
↳ Lewis – McKenna, McCrorie, Taylor – Hayes, Ojo, Ferguson, Hedges, Logan – Wright, Main

Runavik – Statistics & Current Form
If your most expensive player has a market value of € 200,000, and, characteristically, is the only legionnaire in the entire line-up and you still belong to the permanent inventory in the Europa League qualification, it quickly becomes clear that your home is in a, to put it elegantly, football Developing country lies. We are talking about Nes Sóknar Ítrottarfelag (short: NSI), which in the following will only be associated with the name of the city Runavik in a simplified manner.
Last year’s third-placed from the Faroe Islands has been a regular at the big concerts since 2015. In recent years, the black and yellow have been allowed to compete against Dinamo Minsk, Shakhtar Soligorsk or even Fulham FC, among others. The most interesting cross-comparison, however, are the direct duels with the Scottish club Hibernian FC, which had the upper hand in 2018 after a return leg with 12: 5 (6: 1, 6: 4).
Will Runavik remain without his own goal for the 18th time?
Not least because of this, the balance of power on Thursday is clearly distributed. Between Aberdeen and Runavik, anything but a prediction of a sovereign home win would hardly be justifiable. In the entire international career of the club, which was founded in 1957 and is currently coached by Swedish coach Glenn Stahl, only three successes have been achieved in 27 attempts, two of them in the so-called pre-qualification, in which the football exotic also competed against Barry the week before Town from Wales (5-1) claimed.
In addition, it should perhaps be mentioned that the underdog did not score a goal in 17 of the 27 matches mentioned at European level. The form in the domestic league is also another argument that clearly points to a runaway win in the Pittodrie Stadium with three defeats in the last four games, in which they missed out on the offensive twice.
Probable formation of Runavik:
↳ Thomsen – Nielsen, Davidsen, Höjgaard, Hansen – Mortensen, Christjansen, Benjaminsen – Knudsen, Olsen, Bech
Last matches from Runavik:
Europa League Qualification Preliminary Round
⚽️ 08/20 2020 NSI Runavik 5 – 1 Barry Town
