Aberdeen have got a foot in the third qualifying round of the Europa League after cruising to a 3-0 first-leg home win over Ventspils on Thursday night.
The hosts doubled their lead four minutes later through Adam Rooney, who applied a left-footed finish following a scramble in the box from a corner, before adding a third in injury time through a Wes Burns header.
Hibernian, meanwhile, have it all to do in the second leg after falling to a 1-0 defeat against Brondby, with Otso Virtanen spilling a routine save and Kamil Wilczek converting the rebound in the first minute.
Jason Cummings managed to find the net for the hosts after an enterprising move in the first half, but the forward was flagged offside, while worse was to come as Neil Lennon was sent to the stands for dissent.
