Dundee United vs Kilmarnock
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Wednesday, 23 December 2020
Kick-off at 18:30 UK/ 19:30 CET
Venue: Tannadice Park.
The Terrors are a recently promoted team, and despite some initial heroics, they are currently struggling to take on the experienced teams in the Scottish top flight.
In fact, three of their total five wins in this campaign had come against the bottom-most two squads in the table.
Meanwhile, Killie are an experienced team in the league, and they also have a good h2h record against this opponent in recent years. This includes a huge 4-0 win just three months back.
Likely, expect Kilmarnock to have the upper hand this Wednesday.
However, note that Alex Dyer’s men are currently having problems with their backline, and are conceding goals in plenty. They also have a worrying h2h record at this venue over the past two decades.
For the reasons, expect goals to come from both ends of the Tannadice Park pitch.
Dundee United vs Kilmarnock: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Killie recorded a 4-0 win at home the last time these two locked horns, which was three months back.
- They had also recorded three of the former five overall wins.
- However, they have a total of just two clean sheets from the preceding 23 encounters, and have conceded four or more goals in two of the former three clashes.
- At this venue, the guests have a total of two wins since 2002.
- The hosts have scored a total of 25 goals from the former eight fixtures here.
Dundee United vs Kilmarnock: Prediction
Micky Mellon’s men were winless in 25 of their last 33 overall fixtures, and five of their former six wins had come against either teams placed in the bottom-most two positions in the table, or against teams from lower divisions.
On the other hand, their counterparts had won three of their last six overall games. Two of the three fixtures where they failed to post a win had come against Celtic, and Aberdeen – two of the best teams in the league.
On top of that, Dyer’s men also have a good h2h record against this rival in recent years.
As such, expect Kilmarnock to secure at least a point this Wednesday.
However, note that the Terrors have a phenomenal h2h record at this venue, and have scored in plenty in the process. Moreover, Killie are also struggling to defend well these days in road games.
Consequentially, expect Dundee to score at least once at the Tannadice Park.
