Hacken vs Aberdeen predicted lineups

Hacken and Aberdeen will clash for a place in the Europa League next Thursday at the Bravida Arena for the first leg of the playoffs. Currently unbeaten for 4 matches, the Wasps are in good shape to face their Scottish opponents at home.

On the other hand, Aberdeen looks shaky with three losses and one draw in their last six games. Although they might still get some confidence from last year’s 5-1 win against the Wasps.

As we head into Thursday’s game, we’re going to try to predict both teams’ lineups.

Hacken Predicted Lineups: Can They Continue Their Unbeaten Run?

Currently, in second place in the Swedish Allsvenskan, Hacken is pumped up to secure a place in the UEFA Europa League. In the last round, they dominated the Lithuanian club Zalgiris with an 8-1 aggregated win.

The confidence is definitely high as they have their right winger Ibrahim Sadiq in form, who scored 5 goals in 9 matches. The Wasps also only lost one game at home in the Allsvenskan. There is without a doubt an elevated level of morale among the players for their next Europa League playoff match against the Dons.

Although the Wasps are in good form, they have recently lost their UEFA Champions League qualifier against KL Klaksvik in a thriller penalty shootout. Their last meeting with the Dons ended in a humiliating loss, so they are likely to tread carefully.

Except for three players, Per-Mathias Hoegmo will have the full first team at his disposal for the match against the Dons. Simon Gustafson, who is out with a knee injury, is expected to return by early September. Ola Kamara is injured too and won’t be available for Thursday’s match. Plus, Kristoff Lund Hansen, a young left-back, has just left the club to join Palermo in Serie B.

That means after the departure of Bénie Traoré and the injury of Ola Kamara, Srdjan Hrstic, who just signed for the club this month is the first choice as the striker. And due to his recent form, Ibrahim Sadiq will obviously start as the right winger with Amor Layouni at the left.

Hacken Predicted Lineups (4-3-3)

Peter Abrahamsson; Kadir Hodzic, Even Hovland, Johan Hammar, Simon Sandberg; Amane Romeo, Samuel Gustafson, Mikkel Rygaard; Ibrahim Sadiq, Srdjan Hrstic, Amor Layouni.

Aberdeen Predicted Lineups

Aberdeen got a rough start to the 23/24 Scottish Premiership as they drew their first match against Livingstone and lost the second against Celtics at home. In this form, the Swedes could prove to be a challenge in the Europa League draw away from home.

Although, they seem confident in their abilities as they believe they now have a better team than last year, which defeated Hacken 5-3 on aggregate in the Europa Conference League playoff.

When Barry Robson started as the manager of Aberdeen, his philosophy transformed the club and earned a well-deserved third place in the Scottish Premiership. But at the start of the new season, the Dons looks shaky as they lost a few key players in the transfer window.

Nevertheless, they are recovering by signing new players, such as Dadia, Rubezic, and Mcgarry. They also signed Rhys Williams on loan from Liverpool but unfortunately, he will not be available to play against Hacken as he is out with a back injury.

So, Barry Robson is likely to play the same eleven he played against the Celtics.

Aberdeen Predicted Lineups (3-4-1-2)

James McGarry; Jack MacKenzie, Slobodan Rubezic, Nicky Devlin; Graeme Shinnie, Leighton Clarkson, Ryan Duncan, Shayden Morris; Dante Polvara; Bojan Miovski, Duk.
