Derek McInnes wants to add to Aberdeen’s list of memorable European nights by toppling Burnley at Turf Moor.
The Dons manager feels some of his best games with the club have come in Europe and is confident another chapter can be written tonight.
An away goal from Sam Vokes puts the Clarets at a slight advantage ahead of the second leg but Aberdeen more than matched their English Premier League counterparts for much of the game.
McInnes has overseen victories against Siroki Brijeg and Groningen on the continent and a win over Burnley would arguably surpass those two accomplishments.
McInnes said: “A lot of our best moments as a club have come through European campaigns and the fans really relish the trips so it’s important to us and we don’t want this season’s only game to be Burnley.
“It’s important we do all we can. The players fed off the crowd last week and hopefully we can have something similar even although they’ll be in the minority.”
Sean Dyche’s side will be favourites with many to progress to the third qualifying round, with the onus on McInnes and Aberdeen to upset the applecart.
He said: “Burnley, in their own league, even with as well as they’ve done, are underdogs most of the time. They would be happy with that tag.
“They continually upset people with the results they get.
“They have had a fantastic couple of seasons.
“You ask about pressure, I think they will feel that pressure, but the expectation is that Burnley will take care of the game and it’s up to us to change that.”
The Dons boss stressed he does not intend to emerge from tonight’s encounter as “gallant losers” and believes his side can score at Turf Moor.
“We always felt we had to score here probably to get through the tie, and that’s where we are,” said McInnes.
“I think Burnley were favourites prior to the (first) game, which I totally understand, and I think with their away goal last week, they are in the box seat.
“The onus is on us to score and try to change that, but I’m confident that we can do that. We don’t want to just be gallant losers and people to say ‘good old Aberdeen, they put up a fight, they were better than what we thought.’
“The aim is to go through the tie and it has been since we were drawn together.”
The Clarets, meanwhile, have sought Uefa dispensation to register another keeper, with Nick Pope having undergone an operation on his dislocated shoulder.
Dyche would not put a timeframe on Pope’s recovery but the England man looks to be facing a lengthy period out.
With Tom Heaton expected to be sidelined for tonight after picking up a calf problem, Burnley could be left with Anders Lindegaard as their only available keeper.
Dyche could potentially look at signing another player ahead of the match but a more likely option would be to register their fourth keeper, Adam Legzdins.
It is the second successive summer Burnley have seen arguably their first-choice keeper dislocate a shoulder. Heaton was sidelined for more than six months after damaging his shoulder in the fourth match of last season against Crystal Palace.
l The Dons will find out on August 21 what they will need to pay Hamilton Accies for midfielder Lewis Ferguson. An SFA tribunal will decide the final fee, with Aberdeen having offered £100,000 and Accies holding out for closer to £900,000. The fee will be payable within 30 days.
