Viking and Aberdeen get a break from their league challenge to fight for a possible trophy in this Europa League 2nd Qualifying Round fixture.

Viking and Aberdeen should both be in good shape for this meeting, as there's been enough days for both of them to train and rest since their last matches.

This stadium uses artifical turf, unlike Aberdeen's home stadium. The visitors last ten games on artifical turf have ended in 8 wins, 2 draws and 0 losses.

These teams have little in common geographically as Aberdeen have to travel 2600 kilometers to reach their opponents. The trip home will be especially long if the match ends in defeat.
