A packed out Pittodrie was the scene of this all British Europa League second round qualifier against Burnley – giving the Dons an opportunity in the away leg next week.
The match started with an opening tribute to Neale Cooper, with a flag display in the Richard Donald Stand, to remember a Dons great on yet another European night at Pittodrie.
Winger Gary Mackay-Steven’s 19th-minute penalty – after England international James Tarkowski impeded Sam Cosgrove – put Aberdeen ahead at Pittodrie.
But their English Premier League visitors levelled with 10 minutes left when Sam Vokes spun and lashed a shot past Joe Lewis from seven yards.
The second leg will be next Thursday, with the winners playing Turkish side Istanbul Basaksehir in the third qualifying round.
