Aberdeen vs Hamilton
Date: Wednesday, 27 February 2019
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Pittodrie Stadium (Aberdeen).
Aberdeen recovered from a disappointing 2-2 draw at home to St. Mirren with a comfortable 0-2 victory away at St. Johnstone on Saturday. They thus kept ground on Rangers in the battle for the runners-up finish and are five points behind the Gers in second place.
The Dons will have a nice chance to make it back-to-back league wins in mid-week’s round when they host relegation threatened Hamilton Academical at Pittodrie.
The visitors will enter the match in the lowest of spirits after a catastrophic 0-5 defeat to Rangers on Sunday. It was team’s second straight loss which followed a 2-0 defeat away at Hibernian.
The Accies now sit second from bottom in the league ladder. They have a dreadful away record with 2 wins, 1 draw and 10 losses in 13 games on the road this term. They have a disastrous goal difference of 5-29 during the process.
Aberdeen vs Hamilton: Head-to-head
The head to head record also entirely favours the Dons here.
The hosts won five and drew one of last six meetings with the Accies.
Each of last three head to head games saw identical 3-0 wins for Aberdeen.
The Dons won 12 and lost 3 of 15 home outings with Hamilton.
Aberdeen vs Hamilton: Prediction
Aberdeen found goals easy to come by of late. They notched eight goals in last three games in all competitions. They should have plenty of room to keep such fine form going against one of the weakest sides in the division.
Striker Sam Cosgrove was in really good shape of late. He notched five goals in last four appearances. The English forward is our top suggestion for the anytime goalscorer pick at the odds of 1.72.
We expect a one-way street from the very start of the match. You can have Aberdeen to lead at the half time and win at the end at 1.83 odds.
