Kilmarnock vs Aberdeen
Date: Sunday, 4 November 2018
Kick-Off at 12:15 UK/ 13:15 CET
Venue: Rugby Park (Kilmarnock).
A rivalry that started long back will be renewed this Saturday as Killie takes on Aberdeen in their home soil.
The hosts are already in the title race, with 6 wins in their 11 games they are 3rd in the league and are just 5 points behind the toppers Hearts.
Killie are undefeated in the last 6 games in all competitions and has won 4 of them in succession. All of those matches had a score of over 2.5 goals.
At home, they have 2 wins and 2 defeats in last 5 games with 3 games having over 2.5 goals in total. At the moment they are undefeated in 3 games on the trot in Rugby Park.
The team managed by Steve Clarke will want a better finish than last season and are looking in good form to achieve that target.
The visitors are not bad themselves. They are presently in 8th spot in a tightly contested league. They are one of the best defense in the league conceding just 9 goals in 10 games and scoring 13 in return.
In the last 5 games across all venues, they have won 3 and lost 2. Over 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of those games.
Away form is a concern for the Reds manager Derek McInnes as his team has only 1 win in last 5 games on the road. To add to that concern they also lost the latest 2 away games as well.
Looking at their recent form the home side are probably the favorites going into this game and with a win they could be 3rd in the table.
Kilmarnock vs Aberdeen: Head-to-head (h2h)
- In the last 8 h2h matches Aberdeen leads with 5 wins and the Killie has only 1 victory in that period.
- At Rugby Park, Aberdeen is undefeated in the last 12 matches between them and have won 10 of them.
- Over 2.5 goals have been scored in 7 of those games and in 9 of the last 12 h2h across all venues.
Kilmarnock vs Aberdeen: Prediction
Steve Clarke’s team are better at home with 3 wins in 5 home games. Meanwhile, the away side has only 1 win in their 5 matches on road. With a 6 game unbeaten run going on for the hosts it is unlikely that they will lose this game.
Also, the visitors have lost to teams ranked higher in the table like Hearts and Celtic, both in away matches. But in h2h matches at Rugby Park, they fail to take down the Dons, with no wins in the last 12 matches played there. So we can bet on a Double Chance of a Draw or a win for the home side with 1.57 odd.
The hosts have never failed to hit the target in 6 of their last 7 home matches. The away team has also scored in 4 of their last 5 games across all venues. With both the teams scoring 17 and 13 goals respectively this season we can expect goals in this match too. So we can place a bet on both sets of players to find the goal with 1.91 odd.
