Breidablik vs Aberdeen build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
The creation of the Europa Conference League has allowed teams from the so-called lesser leagues a chance of a European campaign, and Breidablik are certainly aiming to benefit. The Icelandic side have previously entered European competition qualifying on seven occasions, with their furthest run taking them to the third qualifying round of the Europa League in 2013/14 before Aktobe of Kazakhstan knocked them out on penalties. Already in Europa Conference League qualifying, Breidablik have cruised past Racing Luxembourg before pulling off a shock result against Austria Vienna.
As a result of their fourth-placed finish in the Scottish Premiership last season, Aberdeen have continued their run of entering European qualifying to eight years. However, they have always struggled in the Europa League qualifying rounds, failing to get past the third round in each of the past seven seasons. Now, they will be looking to advance past the third qualifying round of the Europa Conference League with an eye on making a European group stage appearance for the first time since the 2007/08 Uefa Cup.
- Breidablik (vs Vikingur): T Ingason; Andrason, Arnason, Ottesen, Barkarson; Quee, Punyed, Magnusson, K Ingason; Agnarsson; Gudjonsson.
- Aberdeen (vs Dundee United): Lewis; Ramsay, McCrorie, Considine, MacKenzie; Ojo, Brown, Ferguson, Hayes; Emmanuel-Thomas, Ramirez.
Matty Kennedy has not travelled with the Aberdeen squad due to a sore back but they have an otherwise fully-fit squad from which to choose.

Player to watch: Christian Ramirez (Aberdeen)
Some new signings may find it takes some time before they win over the true love of the fanbase, but that has not been the case Christian Ramirez.
The American striker joined Aberdeen from Houston Dynamo in the summer, signing a two-year deal, and fans immediately fell in love with him, waiting impatiently for him to get onto the pitch in pre-season.
Ramirez scored in pre-season and carried his early form into competitive football, netting in a 5-1 win over Hacken in the first leg of Aberdeen’s second-round qualifier. The 30-year-old went on to score again against Dundee United in the Scottish Premiership opener, proving the fans were right to be excited about the arrival of a goalscorer.
