Aberdeen vs Kilmarnock
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 12 September 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Pittodrie Stadium.
The Dons had finished in the top-most tier the last season, and thus had secured a ticket to the Europa League.
In fact, they have been one of the top-performing teams in the competition for the past several years, and they have already raced to a top-four spot this campaign – and that too while having two games in hand.
Meanwhile, their counterparts had ended in the bottom half of the table in 2019-20, and have been even worse so far, this time around.
Their sole win this season had come against the newly-promoted Dundee United, and importantly, they have also conceded the most number of goals in the whole league.
And to top it all off, they have an unimpressive h2h record against this opponent.
By the looks of things, expect an Aberdeen win this weekend.
Aberdeen vs Kilmarnock: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Derek McInnes’s men had recorded 17 of the previous 18 overall wins.
- They had scored a total of six goals from the last two games alone.
- They had kept clean sheets in five of the previous seven encounters.
- At this stadium, the hosts registered nine of the former ten victories.
- The visitors have not scored a single goal at this stadium in the past three years.
Aberdeen vs Kilmarnock: Prediction
The Dons are on a four-match winning run (including a Europa League fixture), and would have had a 100% winning record in the league if not for a single match-up. In fact, their latest game at home had ended in a massive 6-0 win.
Meanwhile, their opposite number are one of the weakest teams in the competition this season. They have recorded a single win this campaign, and that too against the newly-promoted Dundee United.
Going on, they have conceded the most number of goals in the process, and most importantly, were winless in 14 of their previous 15 road trips.
On top of all this, they have also have a terribly inferior h2h record against this rival over the years.
By all means, expect Aberdeen to dominate proceedings from the get-go this weekend.
