  1. Good night

    That's all from me tonight. Thank you for your company and contributions and please join us again over the weekend for our Scottish League Cup coverage.

  2. Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes

    "We started with good intensity against the ball. We finished the first half really strong. Jayden's first goal was magnificent, Rooney's goal is typical. Defensively, we deserve a lot of plaudits. It is very important to keep clean sheets at home in Europe."

  3. Hibernian manager Neil Lennon

    "I was pleased with everything apart from the first minute. I have to compliment the fitness levels. For me, the tie's not over. He [the referee] was so inconsistent all night and his relationship with his assistants was poor."

  4. Hearts head coach Robbie Neilson

    "We kept our patience, we kept our discipline and we didn't give anything away. We had a few opportunities. It wasn't to be tonight. Nil-nil here against Birkirkara in the heat is a good result."

  7. Mixed results for Scots

    So, a win, a draw and a defeat for Scotland's Europa League qualifying representatives this evening.

    Aberdeen look well placed to progress while Hearts know any win next week will take them through but Hibs have it all to do in their tie.


    Hibernian 0-1 Brondby

    Hibs will need to score in Denmark to keep their Europa League hopes alive after losing at home to Brondby. The Easter Road side competed well against their visitors but could not recover from losing an early goal.

    Aberdeen 3-0 Ventspils

    The Dons are well on their way to the third qualifying round after three second-half goals put them in control against Ventspils.

  10. GOAL Aberdeen 3-0 Ventspils (Burns)

    Another goal from a substitute as debutant Wes Burns nods into the net moments after coming on. That could be a tie-clinching goal.

  11. Hibernian 0-1 Brondby

    A strike by John McGinn from 30 yards cannot seriously test the Brondby goalkeeper. The Hibs midfielder has put in a good shift tonight, though.

  12. Dons delight

    Birkirkara 0-0 Hearts

    It's goalless at the midway stage of Hearts' tie with Birkirkara. The visitors dominated but could not find a breakthrough in the Malta heat.

  14. GOAL Aberdeen 2-0 Ventspils (Rooney)

    And it's another for Aberdeen with Adam Rooney applying a left-foot finish following a scramble in the box from a corner.

  15. Birkirkara 0-0 Hearts

    Just a few minutes left in Malta. Both sides looking tired.

  16. GOAL Aberdeen 1-0 Ventspils (Stockley)

    Jayden Stockley, just on for Kenny McLean, heads the opener for Aberdeen from a Jonny Hayes cross.

  17. Hibernian 0-1 Brondby

    Hibs forward Grant Holt is told to get back to his feet after going down in the box. More frustration for the hosts.

  18. Post update

  20. Hibernian 0-1 Brondby

    Hibs have been unable to maintain the intensity they had at the end of the first half. Liam Fontaine and James Keatings come on with Dylan McGeouch and Marvin Bartley making way.
