Hamilton Academical vs Motherwell
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 2 January 2021
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Hope CBD Stadium.
These two are placed in the bottom-most of the table, and each passing day, their chances of getting relegated are rising. Something needs to be done soon for either of these squads, especially with other teams having started to pull away.
Defense has been a major concern for both these units, and goals having been coming in plenty all through this campaign.
Moreover, the Accies have conceded the most number of goals of all the teams in the league. In fact, they have let in a total of 45 goals so far, whereas only one other squad has conceded more than 30.
Going on, majority of previous h2h clashes have also had goals in huge numbers, and with pressures mounting high, expect a goal-fest this weekend at the Hope CBD Stadium.
Hamilton vs Motherwell: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Four of the former six overall encounters had goals from both teams.
- Five of the past eight clashes had three or more goals.
- Three of the preceding four meetings had goals from both teams.
- Brian Rice’s men had won the latest match-up, with a 0-1 scorecard on the road.
Hamilton vs Motherwell: Prediction
The Accies failed to keep a clean sheet in 20 of their preceding 25 overall games, and they are also placed dead-last in the table. Statistically, they also have the worst defense in the whole league by a mile.
At home, they had conceded a total of nine goals from the former three appearances, and have kept a total of just two clean sheets in the past nine-month period.
On the other hand, their counterparts had a single clean sheet from their previous nine games, and just four since February of 2020.
On top of that, they had also lost the latest h2h encounter – which had taken place just four months back.
In addition, majority of previous h2h fixtures also had goals in plenty. With both teams being desperate for points this weekend, the basic expectation is that a high-scoring game is on the cards at the Hope CBD.
