Apollon Limassol v Aberdeen

AEK Arena - Georgios Karapatakis


Aberdeen fell short in the Europa League third qualifying round as they lost 2-0 to Apollon Limassol.

The visitors carried a 2-1 lead into the second leg in Cyprus, but conceded a scrappy first-half goal to Andre Schembri.

The game was intermittently held up by flares released by the home fans and water breaks because of the heat.

Aberdeen never found their rhythm and lost a late second to Emilio Zelaya.

Derek McInnes will be frustrated that his side managed only to create half-chances, although Kenny McLean steered a header on target in time added on but also straight at goalkeeper Esteves do Vale.

Apollon spent much of the second half time-wasting, but held on to secure the 3-2 win on aggregate, and after the final whistle there was a disturbance among the fans in the away end of the ground.
