Aberdeen vs Rangers
Date: Tuesday, 8th May 2018
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Pittodrie Stadium (Aberdeen).
Focus on battle for runner-up spot in Scottish Premiership as Aberdeen and Rangers separated by 1 point in the table go head-to-head on Tuesday evening.
Aberdeen sitting at second on the log had the chance to pull clear off their Tuesday’s rivals if not for the goal-less stalemate at home with Hibernian on the weekend. Yet, their stats look decent as consecutive clean sheets came from the current three match unbeaten streak.
The only team to beat Aberdeen at home since December is Celtic, whom they meet in the final game of the season this weekend. They picked 7 wins and 2 draws from the other 9 games at the Pittodrie Stadium during that period.
Rangers bagged a 1-0 home win against Kilmarnock on the weekend to get closer to their midweek hosts. They were thrashed 5-0 by Celtic in the previous week, but now they have some confidence and a target to play for the remainder of the season.
The Gers has been a mighty customer to deal in away games this season as they picked 11 wins and 3 draws from their 17 games, losing just 3 times. They also match the scoring prowess of Celtic without the defensive security. They average 2.23 goals per game on the road this season and the 38 goals they scored in 17 outings is the highest number of goals scored by a team in away games this season.
Aberdeen vs Rangers: Head-to-head
Rangers won all the three Premiership meetings against Aberdeen this season, scoring at least twice.
Six of their last 7 h2h meetings saw 3 or more goals.
Besides, Rangers won 5 of their last 6 away matches at Aberdeen losing the other.
Aberdeen vs Rangers: Predictions
The Rangers are coming with a brilliant scoring form on the road
Rangers had beaten Aberdeen three time in this season and don’t think that they can do this for a fourth time. This is not something that is driven by stats, but a pure intuition and the Reds are no mugs at their own backyard.
Punters can expect goals in this game since the visitors are the highest scoring away team on the road in Scottish Premiership this season.
