Aberdeen vs Ross County Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Aberdeen suffered a first league defeat of the season as they lost 3-0 against Celtic. Left back Kieran Tierney came up with the opening goal in the 13th minute while he provided the assist for Mousa Dembele’s 39th minute goal. Dembele completed his brace in the 63rd minute to inflict a heavy defeat for Aberdeen. Ross County were able to manage a point from the trip to the McDiarmid Park, as they picked up a goalless draw. It was a game that saw a decent number of chances for both teams. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats

Betting Tips and Predictions

Aberdeen come on the back of a first league defeat in the 2017-18 season and it substantially lengthens the odds for backing Aberdeen to win the game. The hosts have a strong record at home after managing three wins in five matches. They have also been able to claim four wins in the last five competitive matches with Ross County. Even though Ross County are unbeaten on the road since the arrival of Owen Coyle, it is a stretch too far to expect this game to produce away points. I would go with a win for Aberdeen. Ross County have not scored in four out of the five trips to Aberdeen, who had conceded just two goals in the first four home matches of the season. Ross County have netted only four times in the five matches. I would back a clean sheet for Aberdeen.

Aberdeen Preview

The long-awaited game against Celtic might have provided Aberdeen with a chance to open up a three-point advantage. As it stands, the club has ended up three points behind the reigning champions after the big defeat in the Pittodrie Stadium. The first league defeat of the season still shows that Aberdeen are a long way away from possibly challenging for the title. Still, manager Derek McInnes will not be worried about the campaign, as Aberdeen are second in the table with a substantial four point advantage over Motherwell. Adam Rooney is the leading scorer for the club with four goals in eight appearances.

Aberdeen Team News

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes has a fully fit squad available for this match.

Ross County Preview

Ross County will be pleased with the recent round of results since the arrival of Owen Coyle, as the club has suffered just one defeat and managed to take seven points. As a result, the club are now in with a shout of reaching into the top six places of the SPL 2017-18 campaign. Ross County are only four points behind St Johnstone and the club are preparing for two home games in the next three league outings. Surprisingly, Ross County have been able to do well on the road and are unbeaten in the last two away matches. Craig Curran, Alex Schalk, and Thomas Mikkelsen are the top scorers for the club with each scoring two goals.

Ross County Team News

Christopher Routis (hamstring) is the only player on the sidelines for Ross County manager Owen Coyle.
