Hamilton Academical vs Aberdeen Prediction

Hamilton Academical salvaged a point on the road last week by holding St. Mirren to a frustrating 1-1 draw. The hosts though, looked almost certain to take the lead in that latter matchup, after the referee awarded them a penalty in the 77th minute. However, Mikel Miller failed to slot the ball home from the spot-kick, ultimately forcing both teams to share the spoils.

As of now, the home team are on a five-match winless run in all competitions. With just nineteen points in the bag, Hamilton Academical are just a point shy of hitting rock bottom in the Premiership.

On the other hand, Aberdeen have been hit by a sharp decline in form in their respective campaign as well. Their last clash, in particular, saw them lose 1-0 to St Johnstone, that too at home.

Be that as it may, the visitors have stumbled just twice in their previous nine outings. Admirably, they are also unbeaten in their past three trips on the road, the most recent of which saw them hold the in-form Rangers to a goalless draw.

In sharp contrast, Hamilton Academical have been at the losing end in each of their past three clashes here. Taking into account that the hosts have not secured the bragging rights in any of their previous four meetings with this foe at home either, count on Aberdeen to pick up all three points in this one.

Furthermore, to be frank, scoring goals on the road has just not been Aberdeen’s cup of tea. In fact, the visitors have found the back of the net just twice from their past five outings.

Meanwhile, Hamilton Academical have racked up just fourteen goals at home this season. Considering that three of their past five h2h meetings here have also featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts, it is certainly safe to expect Aberdeen to wrap things up with no more than a goal or two at the most.
