After watching their rivals Hibs being put to the sword by Aston Villa last night, Hearts will be keen to make their mark against European opposition at Tynecastle tonight.

PAOK Salonika are the visitors and it’s the Greeks who are hot favourites at 3/10 to book their place in the group stages of the Europa Conference League.

That feels a little bit disrespectful to the Jambos who will be desperate to take a first leg lead to Greece next week.

PAOK finished fourth in the Greek Super League last season, 16 points behind champions AEK and have bettered Beitar Jerusalem and Hadjuk Split to reach this play-off stage. Their most notable European performance of late was a quarter-final appearance in this competition two seasons ago when they were eventually eliminated at the hands of Marseille.

The Jambos will be buzzing after a tremendous 3-1 win against Rosenborg overturned a 2-1 deficit and they could be a bit of value at 2/1 this evening.

Plenty of Aberdeen fans have made the pilgrimage to Gothenburg, the scene of their greatest victory, for tonight’s clash with BK Hacken.

The Dons lifted the 1983 European Cup Winners Cup in the city and boss Barry Robson will be hoping his team can channel the powers of Leighton, McLeish, Miller, Strachan, McGhee et al and guide his team to a first leg lead in the Europa League.

Hacken were crowned Swedish champions for the first time in their history back in November and they currently trail leaders Elfsborg by a point in this season’s Allsvenskan after 20 matches.

The two sides met just two seasons ago when the Dons progressed thanks to a 5-3 aggregate win. The hard work was done at Pittodrie where Aberdeen won 5-1, only to lose 2-0 in the return leg. But things could be a bit trickier this time round.

The Swedes are favourites to qualify at 4/9 which could be as a result of their thumping 8-1 aggregate win over Zalgiris in the previous round. Aberdeen are 13/8.

The most illustrious club in action tonight are undoubtedly Ajax who find themselves trying to qualify for the Europa League group stages.

The four-time European Champions face Bulgarian champions, Ludogorets, who dropped in to the competition following elimination from the Champions League at the hands of Olimpija Ljubljana who have subsequently been knocked-out by Galatasaray.

It might not be a vintage Ajax side but there’s goals in their team and they’re 8/13 to net two or more.

There should also be goals at AZ’s clash with Brann. Pascal Jansen’s men lead the way in Eredivisie and have scored eight goals in their opening two matches. The Norwegians are no stranger to a goal or two either having scored seven in their last two Eliteserien outings. Over 2.5 pays 3/5.

  • Ajax to score 2+
  • AZ v Brann – Over 2.5 Goals

    A really frustrating day yesterday with 3/7 winners and a loss of just under half a unit. Both Vukic & Dougaz lost big leads which resulted in a 6 unit swing. Still well in profit so far this week in the tennis but it should have been so much better.

    Afternoon gents,

    Just the one pick last night in Iceland but finished with 4 goal, 2 shy of the target needed. Well done all with winners!

    Bolivia for me tonight and reckon goals look a touch on the generous side, not one to go mad on and neither side are scoring hatfuls but each of the last 4 H2Hs have seen 3 goals across a 2 year spell:

    OVER 2.5 GOALS
    (1/1, bet365) NAP ⭐️⭐️⭐️

    OVER 2.5 GOALS
    (5/2, bet365) NB ⭐️⭐️

    BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE BOTH HALVES
    (25/1, bet365) LONGSHOT ⭐️

    Best of luck!
