Ali Youssef has been told he will not play again until 2022 after suffering a cruciate ligament injury in the first leg at Pittodrie.

Hacken vs Aberdeen preview
Having arrived in Scotland in confident spirits after four successive league wins, the Wasps were blown away by a performance that will have surprised even the most optimistic of the returning home fans at Pittodrie.
With their pride hurt, the Swedish outfit will be determined to come out strong in the return leg and go at the visitors from the off.
However, that approach will surely play into the hands of Stephen Glass’ men, who cut through the opposition defence at will in the first leg and will be confident of causing more problems here.
Hacken vs Aberdeen predictions
All things considered, odds of 4/5 (1.80) seem generous on an open and attacking match producing over 2.5 goals in Sweden.
That bet would have paid out in five of Hacken’s last seven European matches, as well as four of Aberdeen’s previous five competitive fixtures.
