Aberdeen have learned who they could face in the Europa League playoff if they can get passed Rijeka – and Dons fans are delighted their side are in with a chance of reaching the group stage.
The Dons travel to Croatia later this week to face Rijeka and avoided the likes of Feyenoord, Espanyol and Sparta Prague in the playoff draw.
After a convincing win over Georgian side Chikhura in the last round followed up by the 3-2 win over Hearts yesterday, the Dons will head for Croatia confident of getting a result.
Dons fans on Twitter they have managed to get the easiest possible draw for the playoff round – with one saying it “could’ve been a lot worse” for them.
The first leg will be on Thursday, August 22 with the second a week later on August 29.
Here are some of the best comments from Aberdeen fans on Twitter:
