Aberdeen vs Dundee United
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 2 January 2021
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Pittodrie Stadium.
The Dons are placed third in the table, and have been one of the best teams this season in the Premiership.
They are also lagging by just five points behind the second-placed Celtic, and since the Hoops are taking on toppers Rangers this game week, Derek McInnes’s men have an opportunity to get into an even more promising position in the table.
Meanwhile, the Terrors are a recently-promoted team, and also are going through a dismal run at the moment. They have a single win from their last five fixtures in the league, and a single win on the road in their past ten overall such fixtures.
On top of that, they also have an inferior h2h record against this opponent over the years.
For the reasons, expect Aberdeen to have the upper hand this weekend at the Pittodrie Stadium.
Aberdeen vs Dundee United: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Dons won four of the previous five overall match-ups.
- They had also registered 12 of the past 16 overall wins.
- They are on a winning run at home since 2015.
- At this venue, the hosts have conceded a total of just two goals in the past six-year period.
Aberdeen vs Dundee United: Prediction
McInnes’s men are currently placed in the podium, and are on a five-match unbeaten run. They have also scored two or more goals in three of these games. At home, they had won eight of their last ten appearances, and have scored a total of 22 goals from their past nine fixtures here.
On the other hand, their opposite number were winless in nine of their last twelve overall matches, and they remained so in 14 of their last 17 games on the road.
In addition, the Dons also have a great h2h record against this rival over the years, and particularly so at this venue. They have also scored heavily in the process.
Finally, Micky Mellon’s men are also inexperienced in the top flight, since they were promoted just at the end of the last season.
Considering these stats, expect Aberdeen to emerge victorious this weekend.
