Aberdeen vs Rangers
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Wednesday, 6th February 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Pittodrie Stadium (Aberdeen).
If any group could raise a formidable challenge for Celtic’s throne, it’s these two, and it’s quite unfortunate that these two were pitted against each other at this stage of the competition. The Premiership had just entered its most exciting phase, and the league-topper has an opportunity to post a healthy lead over the others from this tie.
The Gers arrive at this game high on confidence after the consummate wins they posted in the league as well as the FA Cup (Scotland). Also, apart from Celtic, they are unequivocally the best goal-scoring squad in the country.
The Dons have been good at their home for the whole of the season, except for some rare stumbles. But they might have their task cut out for them this Wednesday, considering who the visitors are. The fact that their only three losses came against top-six teams might be promising and scary at the same time.

Aberdeen vs Rangers Prediction
The Reds have scored in 19 of their last 23 home-ties. The team from Glasgow, on the other hand, remain one of the best offensive threats in the Premiership and has scored in nine of their last ten overall games. They also managed two or more goals in three of their last four visits. It’s safe to assume goals from both teams.
Derek McInnes’s men have been winless at their home in the last three match-days, while their counterparts won their last three in a row, and scored three or more in four of their last five. Also, in h2h ties, the Light Blues have recorded five of the last seven wins, and 15 of the total 22 at the Pittodrie.
A Draw No Bet on the visitors has good value.
