Europa League action returns this evening with four Scottish representatives looking to secure their place in the play-off round.
Here’s how you can watch each team’s match!
18:00 – Riga FC vs Celtic
The first game of the night sees Celtic travel to play Latvian side Riga FC.
With the club only being founded in 2014, Riga have never faced off against Scottish opposition before, but are competing in the European competition for the third successive season.
Having dropped down from the Champions League they went on to defeat Tre Fiori from San Marino in the previous qualifying round, but for tonight’s game the odds are heavily in favour of the Glasgow side.
The match is live on Premier Sports with coverage starting from 17:55. This link can be used to sign up, with the code ‘Celtic499’ giving supporters the chance to view the game for just £4.99.
18:30 – Hapoel Beer Sheva vs Motherwell
After hammering on-form Aberdeen at the weekend Stephen Robinson takes his Motherwell side to face Hapoel Beer Sheva of Israel.
The steelmen are expected to be up against it. Hapoel are known to be a decent side in Europe, recently making both the Champions League play-off round and the Europa League group stages.
However, after a poor start to the campaign, Robinson believes his squad have “turned a corner”, and has stressed they aren’t just there to make up the numbers.
The game is available on Motherwell’s PPV service for £10, but ‘Well fans outside the UK can watch through their monthly subscription package.
20:00 – Willem II vs Rangers
Rangers face a tough test tonight, they’re up against the Eredivisie’s 5th best team last year Willem II.
The Dutch side have scored nine times in their last two matches so it’ll be interesting to see how the ‘Gers much praised defence will cope against a high flying opposition.
Reports have surfaced over the last few days of a potential injury crisis in the Willem squad. First team players Leeroy Owusu, Elton Kabangu, Otschi Wriedt, Rick Zuijderwijk and Freek Heerkens are rumoured to be out, whilst Rangers may be boosted by the reutrn of Leon Balogun.
The match itself has been moved from the original 18:00 kickoff to 20:00 and is available to purchase for £9.99 to viewers in the UK. RangersTV Unlimited subscribers abroad can view as part of their package.
20:00 – Sporting CP vs Aberdeen
On paper Aberdeen may have the toughest tie of the lot, after being drawn away to Portuguese giants Sporting.
Whilst still being strong favorites tonight, things haven’t exactly been plain sailing for the Leões. Ten players last week returned positive Covid-19 tests and as a result will miss the game, this meant their league opener had to be postponed and the team training centre relocated from Lisbon to the Algarve.
Derek McInnes still expects the game to be a “formidable task” nonetheless, and the dons will no doubt have to be at their very best to qualify for the next round.
Aberdeen’s PPV option is slightly more expensive at £12.99, Red TV international subscribers can watch for free, whilst supporters with the domestic package will be given audio commentary, extended highlights, and the post match reacition.
