Video: Greg Stewart Scores Crucial Opener to Give Aberdeen 1-0 Lead vs Siroki Brijeg

Greg Stewart has scored the crucial opening goal for Aberdeen against Siroki Brijeg in the Europa League tonight, a strike which could see the Dons progress in Europe.

Derek McInnes’ team were staring down the barrel of Europa League elimination following a disappointing 1-1 draw at Pittodrie last week.

A scoreline which of course gave the benefit of an away goals advantage to Siroki Brijeg before a ball was kicked tonight.

And the first 45 minutes of the second leg did little to inspire the Aberdeen supporters, as their opponents set out to frustrate the team from the Granite city.

That was until Stewart managed to break free down the right wing and slot the ball coolly and just out of the reach of goalkeeper Luka Bilobrk:

 

And the good news doesn’t stop there for Aberdeen supporters.

Rather than looking to contain the hosts, McInnes’ side have pushed forward in a bid to increase the scoreline… and have succeeded through ex-Celtic midfielder Gary Mackay-Steven.

With the score now 2-0 to Aberdeen, it’s surely a foregone conclusion that the Dons have made it to the next round.
