The Dons have it all to do in the second leg of their second qualifying round clash in Bosnia and Herzegovina after Thursday night’s 1-1 draw.

If they do manage to make it through they will face either Cypriot side Apollon Limassol or Zaria Balti of Moldova in the next round.

Apollon Limassol will be favourites to make it through having won the first leg 3-0 at home. They’ve made the Europa League group stages twice in the last four years.

Neither side have faced Scottish competition in Europe before.

The third round ties will be played on 27 July and 3 August.
