Key Stat: Trencin have kept just three clean sheets in their last 17 matches

Expert Verdict: Hull begin their first European adventure with a trip to Slovakia and it is one from which they should be able to claim their first victory. Steve Bruce looks to have moved well in the transfer market and the signings of attacking duo Robert Snodgrass and Tom Ince should give his increasingly dangerous team an extra dimension.

Recommendation: Hull-Hull double result

Key Stat: Aberdeen have failed to score in just one of their last 21 away matches

Expert Verdict: Derek McInnes’s side are likely to relish this daunting task and Real Sociedad may not have everything entirely their own way. The Spanish side have another three weeks before their season starts and while the gulf between the teams’ leagues is huge, the Dons can still make it difficult and could find the net.

Recommendation: Both teams to score

Key Stat: St Johnstone have lost two of their last 14 home games

Expert Verdict: St Johnstone should not fear these opponents, who finished third in the Slovakian league last season but scored just 47 goals in their 33 matches and lost more than a third of their games. Saints striker Stevie May was ruthless last term with 20 goals and he could set them on their way to a first-leg advantage.

Recommendation: S May to score first

Key Stat: Spartak Moscow finished 12 points ahead of Rubin Kazan last season

Expert Verdict: Rubin Kazan are a solid unit but have been weakened by the recent departures of Jose Salomon Rondon and Yann M’Vila and may struggle to get their campaign off to a winning start. Spartak Moscow have plenty of goals in their side with Yura Movsisyan and Jurado and can force a draw at the Kazan Arena.

Recommendation: Draw

Key Stat: Ural won just three of their 15 home games last season

Expert Verdict: Ural were uninspiring at home last season - no team scored fewer goals on their own patch in the Russian Premier League - and the prices about them beating Mordovia Saransk makes no appeal. The visitors were promoted as impressive champions and look capable of beating a team who finished just three points above the relegation playoff places.

Recommendation: Mordovia Saransk

Key Stat: Zenit recorded nine away victories in the league last season, more than any other team

Expert Verdict: Zenit ended last season in great form to finish just a point behind champions CSKA and the ante-post title favourites can get off to the perfect start by beating newly-promoted Arsenal Tula. Andre Villas-Boas has added Ezequiel Garay to Zenit’s ranks and the team have looked in good heart in pre-season, so the away win looks value.

Recommendation: Zenit
