Date: Saturday, 29th September 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Rugby Park (Kilmarnock).
Kilmarnock bounced back from their defeat to Hibernian in match days 5 with a huge a morale boosting win over Celtic last week.
Killie fans had an exciting weekend last time as they came from behind to win Celtic at home. That fixture is among their toughest fixtures and it’s a huge advantage for them to pick maximum points in that game.
Celtic took the lead in 34th minute via Griffith but couldn’t keep the lead as Killie equalized in 64th minute. They went on to scrap a win in the extra time. They didn’t participate in the midweek League Cup as they exited in the previous round so they will be fresher for this game.
Motherwell are 3rd from bottom table with 4 points from the 6 games having won once and drawn once. They have lost back to back in their previous league games and will be hoping to avoid a third consecutive defeat.
They were beaten 1-0 by Aberdeen last week I’m a game which could have gone either way. They stats shows no big difference between the two sides but Wilson’s early goal was enough to deny Motherwell a point in that game. They also lost in the league Cup quarter-finals as they were beaten 4-2 by Hearts, which will demoralize them more.

The last 4 meeting between these two sides have recorded 2 wins each the sides, however, Killie are the winners of their last meeting.

Kilmarnock vs Motherwell: Prediction
This game will be a tough one for both sides but Killie have slight advantage against their visitors. They won’t have fatigue issues as they didn’t participate in the midweek league cup. Also they are playing in front of their home fans and we expect them to win this one.
Each of their last 3 meetings have recorded goals from one side and Motherwell have failed to score in their last 2 league games. We expect the game to record a low scoring output.
