Clarets To Face Aberdeen In Europa League

Scottish opposition for Burnley with first leg at Pittodrie

20 June 2018

The Clarets will play Aberdeen in the second qualifying round of the Europa League.

Thursday’s draw at Uefa headquarters in Switzerland paired Burnley with the Scottish Premiership side with the first leg to be played at Pittodrie, which has a capacity of just under 21,000.

The first leg will be played on Thursday, 26 July, with the return a week later at Turf Moor on Thursday, 2 August.

The Clarets – who were seeded for the draw - secured a place in Europe for only the third time in their history and the first time in 51 years by finishing seventh in the Premier League last season.

The Dons, who secured runners-up spot behind champions Celtic in the Scottish top flight, have played 131 ties in Europe and famously won the European Cup Winners’ Cup under Sir Alex Ferguson in 1983.

The four-times Scottish champions, managed by Derek McInnes, have played in the Europa League for the last four seasons, reaching the third qualifying round each time.

Ticket details and kick-off times will be confirmed in due course.
