Sporting vs Aberdeen: Match preview

Sporting host Scottish side Aberdeen in the Europa League third qualifying round on Thursday night.

Due to a congested fixture list, there will only be one leg played and the winner of the tie will be decided on the night – meaning extra time and penalties are a possibility.

Sporting’s domestic season is yet to get underway, while Aberdeen have already played eight matches domestically and in Europe.

Aberdeen’s six-match winning streak came to an end on Saturday as they were beaten 3-0 at home by Motherwell. The result leaves Aberdeen 4th in the Scottish Premiership after six matches.

So far, Aberdeen have eliminated Faroe Islands outfit NSI and Norwegian side Viking in previous qualifying rounds.

Sporting have played three pre-season friendlies in the last month or so, the most recent of which was a 2-1 win over Real Valladolid.

Sporting have at least reached the group stage of the Europa League or the Champions League in each of the last six seasons. They reached the last 32 last season, where they were knocked out by Istanbul Basaksehir.

Aberdeen have been involved in Europa League qualifying in each of the last five seasons, but have failed to reach the group stage in all of those attempts. The last time they qualified for the tournament proper, they reached the last 32 of the UEFA Cup in 2008.

Aberdeen have only played two matches against Portuguese opposition in their history, both against Porto in the 1984 Cup Winners’ Cup – both matches ended in 1-0 defeats.

Thursday’s game will be the first meeting between the two sides. Sporting’s last match against Scottish opposition came against Rangers in the Europa League Round of 32 in 2011. Sporting drew both matches but were knocked out on away goals.

The winners of the tie will host one of LASK or DAC Dunajska Streda in the play-off round, the final round before the group stage.

Although the names of the positive-testing players hasn’t been confirmed, Portuguese media have claimed goalkeepers Luis Maximiano and Renan Ribeiro, as well as winger Nuno Santos, are among the players in self-isolation.

Aberdeen team news vs Sporting

Ryan Edmondson, on loan from Leeds United, is expected to be available after recovering from an ankle injury. The 19-year-old was doing his rehab in Leeds but has returned to Scotland.

Ryan Hedges and Ross McCrorie scored Aberdeen’s goals in the previous round and will be expected to start.
