The Europa Conference League could provide some entertainment this season. UEFA's newest competition is billed as the third tier of European competition and gives more clubs across the continent the chance to compete on the continental stage.
If you're keen to look a little more about the competition then UEFA have a handy guide on their site detailing all the ins and outs.
184 teams will be involved over the course of the season including at least one from each of the 55 associations and two of Scotland's representatives take to the stage tonight.
The final on May 25th 2022 in Tirana, Albania feels like a long way away but everbody's got to start somewhere right?
For Aberdeen it's a home tie against Swedish outfit BK Hacken who are well in to their domestic season and could prove to be dangerous opponents. Dons boss Stephen Glass didn't make a huge splash when he replaced Derek McInnes during the course of last season but he's been able to add to his squad in the summer, most notably with Scottish football's most decorated footballer in the modern era, Scott Brown, moving north after his Celtic departure.
Aberdeen fan Mark Walker is in the hot seat for us ahead of the big match at Pittodrie and he's wary of the recent upturn in Hacken's form, opting for a share of the spoils as his main bet at 9/4. Check out his match preview.
Hibs had an impressive season under Jack Ross, but faltered in big one-off cup matches which took a bit of the shine off their third-placed Premiership finish. The Hibees shouldn't have too much trouble against Andorran minnows Santa Colomo and it's no surprise to see them as short as 1/25.
Again, Mark Walker takes a close look at this one for us and has compsed a 4/5 BetBuilder at Bet365 which relies on Hibs putting their opponents to the sword.
Watch out for the start of the Men's Football at the Olympics in Japan in the morning. Two matches are live on the BBC Red Button and iPlayer, as well as Eurosport and Tolu has taken a closer look for us below.
