Aberdeen vs St Mirren Prediction & Match Preview

Aberdeen vs St Mirren
Scottish Premiership
Date: Friday, 2 October 2020
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Pittodrie Stadium, Aberdeen.

It seems like elimination from Europa League qualifiers didn’t make a big impact on Aberdeen and team’s confidence.

Right after their unsuccessful trip to Lisbon, the team recovered by demolishing Ross County on the road, additionally improving their standings in the Premiership.

The Dons welcome one of the weakest teams in the league this Friday, St Mirren, and anything but a home win would be a surprise for everyone.

Aberdeen are big favorites for the win priced at 1.45 odds. Visitors are currently sitting in the last place on the table and having an awful losing streak.

Aberdeen vs St Mirren Head-to-head

There were 47 head to head duels between these teams so far, and stats are heavily going in favour of the home team. Aberdeen clinched 24 victories, while losing only nine matches.

Stats are looking even better when it comes to games at Pittodrie – 15 wins, 7 draws and only 2 losses.

The most recent encounter happened in February, in the FA Cup. Aberdeen have won it easily 2-0.

Aberdeen vs St Mirren Prediction

Even though Glasgow Rangers and Celtic FC are eight points ahead, Aberdeen can still catch up really quickly. Unlike the leading duo, Aberdeen played only seven games so far in Premiership due to European obligations, while all other squads had seven appearances.

Coach Derek McInnes has a lot of reasons to be satisfied with performances so far. Youngster Lewis Ferguson is playing out of his mind so far, scoring four goals and providing two assists for team mates. If St Mirren want to cause an upset, they will have to focus on this guy, that’s for sure.

It’s interesting to mention though that Aberdeen lost two games at Pittodrie this season already, to Motherwell and Glasgow Rangers. That is hardly going to happen against a team which currently has five losses in a row. We are backing hosts to win HT and FT, as well as to score in both halves.

Aberdeen vs St Mirren Bet Tips

  • Home win HT and FT @ 2.25
  • Aberdeen to score in both halves @ 2.50.
