Video: Derek McInnes Jokes Aberdeen Are “Terrified” of Siroki Brijeg’s Atmosphere

Siroki Brijeg striker Stipo Markovi claimed earlier this week that Aberdeen could “expect hell” during tonight’s Europa League clash… not that Derek McInnes is convinced.

Speaking ahead of tonight’s kick-off, with the tie well-balanced at 1-1 after the first leg at Pittodrie, Dons boss McInnes appeared both calm and confident that his team can progress.

In fact, the 46-year-old even joked about this evening’s fear-factor, reminding the media that his Aberdeen team have won at away at bigger European venues, including against both Celtic and Rangers.

McInnes claimed his players appear to produce better performances is noisy and passionate atmospheres:

If Siroki Brijeg advance it will equal their best ever Europa League performance, which came four years ago when they reached the third qualifying round for the only time before being knocked out by Italian side Udinese.

The winner of tonight’s match will progress to play either Apollon Limassol of Cyprus or Moldova’s Zaria Balti.
