  1. Scottish sides ahead at halfway stage

    FT: Aberdeen 3-1 Fola Esch, Hearts 2-1 Infonet

    That's enough from me on what ended up a good evening for Aberdeen and a so-so one for Hearts.

    Both sides should be sharper after their first outings of the season, so let's hope they can get the job done next week.

    Thanks for your company and safe travels if you are making your way to Luxembourg or Estonia.

    BBC Radio Scotland will have both second legs covered next week. 

    Hearts are first up on Wednesday, with a 17:00 kick-off. Aberdeen are in action on the following day in a 16:45 start.

    Make sure you join us for those.

  3. Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes

    Talking to BBC Radio Scotland

    "It's a good night after looking like it might be a frustrating night. The amount of chances we created - we had two goals chopped off that shouldn't have been, their keeper had a brilliant night and we had one cleared off the line. It could have been seven or eight but thankfully we managed to get three.

    "We wore them down after we generated a better tempo after the break. McGinn and Hayes were relentless in the second half.

    "That game will help us be game ready for the next leg. We will be better again for that experience. The team should be feeling good about themselves because their desire was fantastic."

  4. Hearts head coach Robbie Neilson

    Talking to BBC Radio Scotland

    "We made it hard for ourselves by losing the first goal but they showed good character to come back.

    "The players were rusty and it took a while to find that competitive edge but it will come

    "It will be a really tough game over there. We really need to score to put it to bed. We're ahead at the halfway stage and the players will be another week sharper."

  5. Post update

    FT: Hearts 2-1 Infonet

    Hearts' winner came from an own goal on 36 minutes. It was all a bit scrappy from the men in maroon but they will be happy to have their noses in front after conceding the first goal.

    Will another week of training be enough to get them up to speed for a tricky second leg?

  6. FULL-TIME

    Hearts 2-1 Infonet

    Hearts hold a narrow advantage ahead of next week's trip to Tallinn but that away goal may cause head coach Robbie Neilson a few sleepless nights before then.

  7. Post update

    Hearts 2-1 Infonet

    A late chance for Hearts as Andrei Kalimulin, scorer of that earlier own goal, heads over his own crossbar to clear. The set-piece comes to nothing and that is pretty much that.

  8. Post update

    Hearts 2-1 Infonet

    Hearts are hanging on a bit here. 'Nothing daft lads.' is the message from the bench. Well, something along those lines, with the instructions probably a little more technical.

  9. 'Tough ask for Hearts to progress'

    Hearts 2-1 Infonet

    Former Hearts midfielder and BBC Scotland pundit Allan Preston: "Hearts have been really rusty, which is to be expected, but Infonet have played really well and caused Hearts lots of problems going forward. It is going to be a tough ask for them in Estonia next week. This team are technically very gifted - they can certainly play."

  10. Post update

    Hearts 2-1 Infonet

    Hearts must stay switched on in these closing minutes. The visitors have played some nice stuff and can break at speed.

    A long-range free-kick whizzes into the arms of keeper Jack Hamilton. An impressive strike from all of 40 yards but a comfortable save.

  11. Dons 'will be happy'

    FT: Aberdeen 3-1 Fola Esch

    Former Aberdeen captain and manager Willie Miller: "Aberdeen are a better side than Fola, but the visitors have put up a really good performance. They have looked dangerous in attack but weak in defence at times. The goalkeeper makes some awful decisions.  I think Derek McInnes will be happy with what his side have done.  They have an excellent opportunity to progress." 

  12. Post update

    Hearts 2-1 Infonet

    The home side are huffing and puffing in search of a third goal. Perry Kitchen is not long on for Prince Buaben in the middle of the park.

  13. FULL-TIME

    Aberdeen 3-1 Fola Esch

    Two goals in stoppage-time rescue what was looking like a rather embarrassing night for Aberdeen. Now they take a healthy lead to Luxembourg next week.

  14. GOAL

    Aberdeen 3-1 Fola Esch (Rooney)

    Suddenly it's all rosy in the Aberdeen garden as Adam Rooney keeps his cool to convert the penalty, sending the keeper the wrong way.

  15. PENALTY

    Aberdeen 2-1 Fola Esch

    Handball. A penalty for the Dons - with what might be the last kick of the ball.

  16. GOAL

    Aberdeen 2-1 Fola Esch (McGinn)

    A shot from Niall McGinn squirms under the goalkeeper after taking a deflection. The linesman has his flag up - is that a third disallowed goal of the evening? No, the ref has a chat with his assistant then awards the goal.

  17. CLOSE!

    Hearts 2-1 Infonet

    Chance for the visitors as Jevgeni Harin, who scored Infonet's opener, cuts in from the right, but his left-footed effort is deflected narrowly wide. 

  18. Injury time bonus

    Aberdeen 1-1 Fola Esch

    We're into the last minute and Aberdeen are all square with the visitors from Luxembourg. Can the hosts find a winner in the seven minutes of added time? The visiting bench is not happy but there have been a few Fola players going down with cramp and what not...

  19. Post update

    Aberdeen 1-1 Fola Esch

    Corner number 15 for Aberdeen sees the ball fall to Jayden Stockley but his effort takes a touch off a defender and floats up into the grateful arms of the goalkeeper.

  20. Nifty Nicholson is Hearts best outlet

    Hearts 2-1 Infonet

    Richard Wilson

    BBC Scotland at Tynecastle

    "Hearts continue to be ragged, in some of their passing, decision-making and defensive resolve. They have not created any clear chances in the second half, and have also had to be alert to the dangers of Infonet on the break. 

    "The home side's best chance to break through a well-organised side is to work the ball to Nicholson, who's jinking past opponents with relative ease."
