Aberdeen vs St. Johnstone Prediction

With their injuries affecting their playing eleven, Aberdeen has been struggling to score a goal in their past three fixtures which rendered winless in the end. Their most recent encounter with Rangers ended in a goalless draw.

However, keeping a clean sheet against Steven Gerrard’s Rangers will be an achievement for Derek McInnes and his team, especially away from home. Since they are facing a weaker side in the league, we can expect them to play more upfront and create chances for a couple of goals.

With just two losses in their last ten home matches across all major competitions, the Dons can make good use of their home ground advantage. Also, the host has lost only two of their 11 home games so far in the campaign.

St. Johnstone had their previous encounter at the comforts of their home. They hosted Hearts and both teams scored three goals each. The Saints came from behind and took the lead after trailing by two goals, but Hearts scored in the last minute of the game to share the spoils in the clash.

The visitor has taken a dip in form in the league with just one win in their last five clashes. In addition to that, the Saints have won only twice in their 10 away games in the campaign until now. Tommy Wright’s only comfort will be that those two wins have come within his team’s last five trips.

On account of the visitor’s poor away form, Aberdeen has a slight edge over the opponents in the match. So, the punters will be looking towards the Dons to create more opportunities in the game. Hence, Aberdeen is more likely to win the clash and take all three points from it.

The host has scored an average of 1.3 goals per match in the league so far. On the other hand, St. Johnstone have scored only 21 goals in 23 league appearances. So, we can expect a couple of goals from the Dons and likely a total of over 1.5 goals in the match.
