Aberdeen vs Kilmarnock Prediction & Match Preview

Aberdeen vs Kilmarnock
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 26th January 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Pittodrie Stadium (Aberdeen).

Killie will be gearing up to avenge the loss they experienced against this team, in the reverse fixture, last November. It was a blessing in disguise though, as since then the team has been on a steady march to the top, stumbling only once against the league-topper Celtic.

The Dons too have gone through their league games comfortably, taking knocks once in a while against the top teams. They will be motivated by the home crowd behind them for this tie.

With a win, both teams stand a reasonable chance to go to the top of the table. Celtic has been sitting undisturbed at the zenith for a while now, and it’s time the fans wish for a regime change.

Aberdeen vs Kilmarnock Prediction

It’s an evenly matched tie in every sense. Steve Clarke’s men might be slightly better in form, but they are on the road for the game, and that should balance things. Both teams are on unbeaten runs for the last several weeks, only blemished by losses against Celtic, the current league-topper.

The funny thing is, the Hoops are in sight for either squad, and a win can possibly take them to the top of league standings, and as a result, the two groups will be playing with an intent to win.

And ironically, for the same reason, a win is probably unlikely this Saturday. The offensive threat that these teams possess will possibly lead to a score draw. A huge score is improbable, however, courtesy the backlines that will be ready for the challenge.
