Aberdeen vs Motherwell
Date: Sunday, 20 September 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Pittodrie Stadium (Aberdeen).
Unbeaten in 6 matches across all competitions, Aberdeen are strong favourites to win against Motherwell in the Scottish Premiership fixture on Sunday, 20 September 2020.
Since starting off a narrow 1-0 defeat at home to Rangers, Aberdeen grew in confidence and bagged league wins on the bounce. They made it to 6 in all competitions on the midweek with the 2-0 away win against the Vikings in Europa League qualifier.
A strong defense that let in just 2 goals from those 7 games is once again in the focus for Derek McInnes’ men.
On Sunday, they welcome Motherwell, a team that finished third last season, but currently sitting at the foot of the table with 5 points from 7 games.
Despite their troubles in domestic league, the Steelmen managed to book their place in the next round of Europa League qualifiers at the expense of Northern Irish club Coleraine. It was not a convincing display at the midweek as they squandered a comfortable 2-0 lead before the match went into the penalties.
The current form is decisive for the bookies in posting Aberdeen as favourites at 1.80 odd to win against Motherwell, while a draw can be backed at 3.50 and away win at 4.50 odd.

Aberdeen vs Motherwell Prediction
Every stat including form and h2h indicates once thing and that is a home win.
Motherwell are yet to score an away goal in the league this season and they will have their work cut down by an airtight Aberdeen defense that let in just 2 goals from 7 competitive games this season.
It wouldn’t be a surprise if the home team wins here without conceding, taking into account that both teams scored in just 1 of the last 10 meetings between these sides.
