Aberdeen vs Dundee FC Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

Aberdeen come on the back of a good start to the season, as the club claimed a 2-1 win over Ross County in the second match. Craig Curran scored from a set piece after just two minutes, but Mark Reynolds was able to restore parity in the 23rd minute. A second-half goal from Shaleum Logan secured a vital victory for Aberdeen. Dundee fell to a 3-0 loss against Hamilton at the Pittodrie Stadium. Dundee were unable to convert several good opportunities before Darian MacKinnon opened the scoring in the 24th minute. Steven Boyd and Dougie Imrie (penalty) scored to help create a significant winning margin, while Dundee’s Scott Allan failed to convert from the spot in the 78th minute.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Aberdeen have been a dominant force in this encounter after winning the last six. In fact, head-to-head record is overwhelmingly in favour of Aberdeen, as Dundee’s last victory over this opponent was in 2014 in the FA Cup. Aberdeen remain strong defensively and Dundee may not get the same kind of opportunities that they received against Hamilton. Aberdeen have kept five clean sheets in the last six games against this opposition. I would go with a clean sheet for Aberdeen considering Dundee’s poor form in front of goal. The last six home games for Aberdeen against Dundee has witnessed the former score more than 1.5 goals in four games. Aberdeen have been able to score more than 1.5 goals in the opening two league matches, while Dundee have conceded five in the opening two. I see reasonable value in opting for Aberdeen to score over 1.5 goals.

Aberdeen Preview

The start of the season has been brilliant for Aberdeen, as the club has been able to overcome the disappointment of failing to reach the Europa League group stages after being knocked out in the qualifiers by Apollon. The club has started the domestic campaign with three consecutive wins in all competitions. The goal scored by Ross County is the first time Aberdeen have conceded a goal in the domestic campaign. Last season, a strong defence was a hallmark of the team, as Aberdeen conceded only 28 goals in the first phase. Aberdeen have witnessed five different scorers in the last three matches.

Aberdeen Team News

Aberdeen do not have any injury or suspension worries coming into the game.

Dundee FC Preview

Dundee have made a very poor start to the 2017-18 SPL campaign after losing their opening two matches. The home loss against Ross County would hurt the team a lot, but there are positives for manager Neil McCann in the game against Hamilton – despite the heavy defeat. Dundee created several opportunities and could have easily won 3-0 had the team been more clinical in finishing. One of the positives for the club is progression into the quarter-finals of the League Cup where they are up against Celtic. Dundee have scored just once in the opening two league matches.

Dundee FC Team News

James McPake (knee), Julen Etxabeguren (Achilles tendon), Kostadin Gadzhalov (calf), and Craig Wighton (knee) are the players unavailable for the club due to injuries.
