Aberdeen vs Rangers Prediction & Match Preview

Aberdeen vs Rangers
Scotland – FA Cup
Date: Sunday, 3rd March 2019
Kick-off at 13.30 UK/ 14.30 CET
Venue: Pittodrie Stadium (Aberdeen).

Two top teams from Scotland go against each other for a place in the final four of the FA Cup. But despite their proximity in the upper echelons of the Premiership league table, Rangers hold a clear advantage over the other, and it’s only their road status for this fixture, that brings some sense of hope for Aberdeen. But even that seems to be misplaced against the free-scoring Rangers.

Aberdeen is also low in morale due to their poor form at home. Just the last match-day the team lost against Hamilton, from the lower tier of the Scottish league standings. Even with the home advantage, they could not scrape together at least a goal, let alone the three points.

Aberdeen vs Rangers Head-to-head (h2h)

  • 12 of the last 16 wins belong to Rangers.
  • Rangers recorded a 2-4 away win in their last meeting, which took place just a few weeks back.
  • Six of the last eight wins at this stadium went the guests’ way.
  • Rangers found the back of the net in nine of their last ten games at this stadium.

Aberdeen vs Rangers Prediction

Rangers along with Celtic remain the only teams to score 60 goals or more in the Premiership, while the rest have not even managed to touch 50. Also, the team boasts of a goal difference of 44, whereas for Aberdeen the figure is a paltry 12.

Moreover, just some match-days back, Rangers recorded a thorough 2-4 win over Aberdeen, on the road. And additionally, the team has posted convincing h2h stats over the hosts of this tie. 12 of the last 16 wins, as well as six of the last eight at this venue, went their way.

Importantly, Aberdeen has just one win in their last seven home fixtures, and the lone win came against a lower division side. On the other hand, Rangers is unbeaten in 15 of their last 16 games and won seven of their last nine. On the road, they won four of their last five attempts.

On account of these observations, it’s inferred that Rangers will comfortably coast into the last four of this competition. And since, they have scored three or more goals in four of their last five away ties, four or more in their last three overall fixtures, again four or more in five of their last seven, and three or more goals in seven of their last nine – we believe at least two is a minimum guarantee this Sunday.
