Kilmarnock vs Aberdeen
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 24 August 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Rugby Park (Kilmarnock).
Apart from the obvious top two, these clubs were the next best in the country by a mile last season. Both had finished with 67 points on the board and presented a strong case to be considered the favorites for the European spots early on itself.
Despite the impressive run last time around, Kilmarnock has utterly failed to put forth a satisfactory game so far. They have lost both of their opening matches and is rightfully placed at the bottom-most.
Aberdeen, meanwhile, started with a win but fell against an unexpected opponent, St. Mirren. The latter had finished penultimate in league standings and would have been deemed the frontrunner to get relegated, if not for Dundee.

Kilmarnock vs Aberdeen Prediction
Aberdeen has been simply on another level against this opponent for quite a long time in h2h ties. They registered 18 of the previous 19 face-to-face wins and won the last eleven such clashes in a row at this venue.
They also scored two or more goals in nine of the last ten encounters here, while keeping clean sheets in six of the last eleven battles.
Moreover, Kilmarnock has lost both of their two fixtures so far and is in fact the only group yet to open their account, whereas their guests are already in the top tier, and would have climbed even higher, if not for their unlucky loss against St. Mirren.
A brief glance at these stats easily helps us to pick our choice, a win for Aberdeen.
