Aberdeen vs Motherwell Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Aberdeen dropped further behind Celtic after only managing a 2-2 draw with Hamilton. Dougie Imrie provided the lead for Hamilton with a fine free-kick in the 19th minute before Aberdeen gained a lead through goals from Craig Stewart and Kari Arnason. Just when it seemed that Aberdeen would take three points, David Templeton came up with a 76th minute goal to snatch a draw. Motherwell suffered a second consecutive loss as they slipped to a 3-2 defeat against Ross County. Goals from Ryan Bowman and Louis Moult were insufficient to cancel out the brace from Michael Gardyne and goal from Davis Keillor-Dunn in the first half.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Even though Motherwell were able to get a 3-0 win over Aberdeen back in September when these two teams met each other in the League Cup, the SPL meetings between these two teams have been largely dominated by Aberdeen. Home advantage is once again likely to favour Derek McInnes’ outfit. Due to rumours surrounding his future at the club, Aberdeen have been going through an inconsistent spell. Yet, they face a Motherwell team coming on the back of back-to-back losses. I would go with a win for Aberdeen. Recent games involving Aberdeen have ended up as high-scoring matches – partly due to Aberdeen’s strong scoring form and partly due to their poor defensive run. Motherwell have also been scoring at an average of just over a goal per game. Hence, I would go with the total goals being more than 2.5.

Aberdeen Preview

Aberdeen have failed to take advantage of the recent slipups from Celtic, as they are five points behind the table leaders. After going through a string of positive results over the last few weeks, the defeat against Celtic and the dropped points against Hamilton have been quite damaging for Aberdeen. There is no immediate danger of the second spot being lost to chasers like Hibernian, but the poor form may continue as manager Derek McInnes continues to be linked with a move to Rangers. A main priority for the club will be to revive the defensive solidarity after having conceded six goals in the last three matches. Adam Rooney has scored four goals in 10 appearances so far.

Aberdeen Team News

Aberdeen are not suffering from injuries or suspensions in the game.

Motherwell Preview

Motherwell were able to make incredible strides up the league table only a few weeks ago, but their progress has been halted rather abruptly by back-to-back losses. The defeats against Hibernian and Ross County have come against the run of play, and it puts the club at a risk of losing out on the top four places. Motherwell have already fallen five points behind Rangers even just 12 games into the season, while Hearts and St Johnstone are not far behind. Motherwell have conceded 15 goals – the highest of the top five teams – in the first 12 games of the season. Louis Moult is the top scorer with six goals in 12 appearances.

Motherwell Team News

There are no injury worries for Motherwell coming into the game.
