Ross County vs Aberdeen Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Ross County’s poor form showed no signs of improving, as the team slipped to a 2-1 loss against Rangers. Daniel Candeias came up with the opening goal by taking advantage of a goalkeeper error, while Jason Cummings doubled their advantage in the 82nd minute. A late penalty from David Ngog pulled one back for Ross County. Aberdeen were unable to beat inform Kilmarnock 3-1 at the Pittodrie Stadium. Even though Kilmarnock opened the scoring through Kris Boyd after 28 minutes, Aberdeen were able to produce a sensational second-half comeback with a brace from Scott McKenna and Nial McGinn.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Ross County had a decent number of chances against Rangers, but the team did not come close to securing a positive result. The situation looks bad for Ross County, who are sitting at the bottom of the table. Meanwhile, Aberdeen’s confidence has received a major boost following the manner of the victory against Kilmarnock, who have been quite strong in recent times. Despite Aberdeen losing the last two away matches, they are available at a good price to make it five consecutive victories over Ross County. I would choose a win for the away team.

Aberdeen have been able to score over 1.5 goals in four out of the last six meetings with Ross County. Owen Coyle has also seen his team concede over 2.5 goals in four out of the last five league matches. I would choose Aberdeen to end up with more than 1.5 goals.

Ross County Preview

Ross County are starting to appear as favourites for relegation with the club unable to prevent a rapid slide in form. The latest defeat against Rangers marks a fourth consecutive loss for Owen Coyle and his men. The club have been trying to back the manager with some key signings in this January transfer window. David Ngog, Greg Tansey, and Harry Souttar are some of the key signings made by Coyle in the last few weeks. Ngog already made an impression by scoring the goal against Rangers – albeit from a penalty.

Ross County Team News

Jamie Lindsay (knee) and Sean Kelly (knee) are the players unavailable for Ross County coming into this match.

Aberdeen Preview

Aberdeen were able to produce a tremendous response to the away defeat against Rangers, as the comeback victory over Kilmarnock proves that the club will be taking the top two fight until the last day of the season. The first league victory of 2018 is certainly a good start for Aberdeen, who had picked up just one win in the previous four league meetings. The three goals scored against Kilmarnock also marks a positive for Aberdeen, who have brought in the likes of Nial McGinn, Michael Devlin, and Kenny MacLean so far in this transfer window. Adam Rooney remains as the top scorer at the club but with only six goals in 22 games.

Aberdeen Team News

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes will be without Joe Lewis (knee) and Stevie May (knee) due to injuries.
