The World Cup is barely done and dusted although matters now move towards the 2018/19 season and first up on the agenda are some preliminary Europa League clashes.

Burnley supporters might have been hoping for somewhere a touch more exotic than Aberdeen for their Europa League qualifying second round clash, although it represents a chance for the Clarets to make headway nonetheless.

Sean Dyche’s squad have the ability to overcome their Scottish opponents over 180 minutes, although the first tie at Pittodrie will be an exercise in weathering any storms from the Dons before making sure of a safe passage at Turf Moor.

Burnley finished seventh in the Premier League last season, with the Lancashire side having a similar squad this time around and we should expect a robust challenge from the English side.

Aberdeen finished second in the SPL last season and they deserve credit for only finishing nine points behind inevitable champions Celtic, with Derek McInnes’ side winning as many games on the road (11) as they did at Pittodrie.

Adam Rooney has recently left to join Salford City, although Dyche isn’t underestimating the opposition.

Dyche told the Mail On Sunday: ” Aberdeen are tough opposition for us, a good side without a doubt.

“I’m sure it will be a very competitive game. Not remotely am I thinking walkover. The good thing is we have an honesty to the way we work in the group and the mentality.

“They know Aberdeen are a decent side and will be right up for it. Derek and his team have done a great job putting very strong seasons together back-to-back.

“I don’t cover their football all the time but I think they’ve not got too bogged down by the Celtic/Rangers thing and whatever that story may be.”

The bookies have Burnley at odds-on although we’re more inclined to have a speculative bet on the match finishing all square, especially with the Clarets looking to recruit additional players between now and the start of the domestic season.
