Dundee United vs St. Johnstone
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 1 August 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Tannadice Park.
The Saints had missed out on a European spot by a small margin the last season. They did have a game in hand, and the season was not yet complete before it was hastily called off due to the pandemic – still, the team had a considerable gap of points to overcome in order to make the cut.
As such, they do not have anyone to blame but themselves. For the reason, they would definitely go after European qualification right from the start of this new campaign.
They open this new season against the newly-promoted Terrors, and that itself would be a huge sign that the guests of the day have a huge upper hand to secure the three points. On top of that, they do have an impressive h2h record over the years as well.
Likely, expect St. Johnstone to win this weekend.
Dundee United vs St. Johnstone: Head-to-head (h2h)

- At this venue, the guests are on a winning run since 14.
Dundee United vs St. Johnstone: Prediction
Micky Mellon’s men have been newly promoted to this top flight, and as such, they are a bit rusty in order to take on experienced teams in the Premiership. On top of that, the Saints also have a great h2h record against this rival in the past several years.
In fact, they have won every single h2h meeting at this stadium since 2014, and they have lost just twice in overall since 2013 as well.
Moreover, they were unbeaten in 15 of their past 18 overall fixtures, whereas their counterparts remained winless in nine of their last ten overall games.
Taking these observations into account, expect St. Johnstone to win this Saturday.
