Kilmarnock vs Aberdeen Prediction

Aberdeen had hosted Kilmarnock in the first leg of the tie. Both teams were not ready to concede even an inch in the fixture, and tried their level best to secure progression to the quarters. At the end though, the teams settled for a goalless draw, thus leading to the replay.

Once again we can count on the teams to give paramount importance to defense, in order to avoid mistakes, that in turn could lead to elimination. The strategy for both the squads will be to play it safe, and try to capitalize on mistakes by the opposite side. 

Likely, once again we can count on a low-scoring affair between the two. Moreover, these two have a history of low-scoring h2h clashes recently. In fact, six of the last eight meetings had under 2.5 goals, and three of the former five encounters were completely goalless.

Going on though, Aberdeen do have a slight advantage this Wednesday. They are in contention for a podium spot in the league table, while their counterparts are placed in the bottom half of the table. Also, Aberdeen have historically dominated this opponent to a great extent.

To be precise, 20 of the prior 22 h2h wins had gone to Aberdeen, and ten of the last twelve clashes at this stadium had ended in victories for the guests. Considering these findings, it’s adjudged that Aberdeen should avoid a loss this Thursday against Kilmarnock.
