Venue: Fir Park, Motherwell.
31st round of Scottish Premiership is starting on Friday night with a clash at Fir Park. The battle for 3rd place is on, as Motherwell welcomes Aberdeen.
Both teams have been extremely inconsistent when it comes to results in the last couple of weeks but ending the first part of the season in top six bracket is almost guaranteed.
Bookmakers are expecting a narrow contest, offering 2.55 odds on home and 2.75 on away victory. We are hoping for an open match and loads of goals, which does have high chance of happening considering the latest forms of these sides.

Motherwell vs Aberdeen Prediction
Motherwell and Aberdeen have already locked horns twice this season. The Dons were successful at this turf, beating the opposition 3-0 FT. The most recent meeting was won by Motherwell though in late January 1-0 FT. The only goal scorer in that match was Liam Donnelly.
Motherwell’s fans are not happy with recent results and performances. The team has lost four out of the last seven Premiership games to Livingston, Celtic, St Johnstone and St Mirren. The only victory in those encounters was achieved at this stadium against Ross County.
Aberdeen on the other hand are having a great time, mostly when it comes to cup competitions. The Dons have reached the semi-finals of FA Cup where they will face Celtic FC in mid-April. Also, this team has lost only 4 encounters on the road this season.
We see good value in backing Aberdeen to win the game. Motherwell have lost a lot of games in the last six weeks, including disappointing home loss to St Mirren. We should definitely see some goals at Fir Park.
Motherwell vs Aberdeen Bet Tips
