Aberdeen 2 - 1 Rapid Vienna

HT Score: Aberdeen 0 - 1 Rapid Vienna

UEFA Cup First Preliminary Round First Leg
Aberdeen scorers: Robertson 80, Grant 89.
Rapid Vienna scorers: Kranjcar 7

13/09/1989 | KO: 19:30


A superb display by Aberdeen with new signing Hans Gillhaus and his striking partner Charlie Nicholas in rampant form. A huge roar greeted Charlie's first strike, his first goal of the season, and he promptly made up for lost time by grabbing a further two. The Dons even had the luxury of a missed penalty but the Pittodrie faithful went home delighted with the knowledge that Aberdeen were again top of the league.
