Motherwell vs Aberdeen Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Motherwell’s winning run was snapped by a 2-2 draw with Hibernian during the weekend. Neil Lennon’s team were able to get a 2-0 advantage through a brace from Anthony Stokes. However, Motherwell sparked a remarkable comeback in the second half with Louis Moult scoring twice in the space of 10 minutes. Aberdeen’s unbeaten run continues but the club could only get a 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock at the Pittodrie Stadium. Stevie May continued his good form with the opening goal after 10 minutes, but the home team were pegged back by a second-half equaliser from Jordan Jones. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Aberdeen have had an impeccable record against Motherwell after winning the last five matches without exception. There were a string of games between these two clubs in 2016, but this will only be the third meeting of 2017. Despite being at home, Motherwell have been able to get just one win in six against Aberdeen. Yet, they have scored in four out of the recent five home games against Aberdeen. Derek McInnes has seen Aberdeen keep just one clean sheet in the last five. I see value in backing both teams to score.

This has traditionally been a high-scoring game with more than 2.5 goals in four out of the recent five meetings. Three out of the last five league matches for Aberdeen and Motherwell have been filled with more than 2.5 goals. I see both teams coming into the game with good scoring form. As a result, I go with over 2.5 goals.

Motherwell Preview

The campaign is turning out into a positive story for Motherwell even after the recent draw with Hibernian. After having struggled with form throughout last season, Motherwell will be pleased with a run of three wins in the first six matches of the season. More importantly, the club has recovered from a poor start following defeats in the first two matches. The major positive for the club during the summer transfer window was retaining Louis Moult, who was the club’s top scorer last season with 15 league goals. This season, he has been able to continue on the same pace and has become the second top scorer in the division – behind Alfredo Morelos – with five league goals.

Motherwell Team News

Motherwell are not suffering from injuries or suspensions coming into the game.

Aberdeen Preview

Derek McInnes may have seen Aberdeen go unbeaten in the first six matches of the league campaign, but the club have been unable to keep up with the likes of Celtic. Aberdeen have fallen to second in the table. It may not have been a disappointment in any other campaign, but the lack of European football means that the manager cannot come up with excuses for failing to challenge for the Scottish Premier League title along with Celtic. Aberdeen had one of the best defences last season, but this season has seen the club concede six goals in the first six matches already. Summer signing Stevie May is the club’s top scorer with three league goals.

Aberdeen Team News

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes has a fully fit squad available at his disposal.
