Motherwell vs Aberdeen
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 24 November 2018
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Fir Park, Motherwell.
Just three spots separate Motherwell and Aberdeen on the points table. But there is a gulf of difference between their quality and performance on the pitch. Fir Park, Motherwell’s home ground, hosts Aberdeen in this 14th round fixture of Scottish Premiership.
Aberdeen recorded a routine victory over Hibernian last weekend at home. The final scoreline read 1-0. Mackay scored the lone goal and the winner in the 40th minute, and for the next 50 minutes, Aberdeen defense bravely and passionately did their job. Hibernian did look for an equalizer until the last whistle, but their efforts went fruitless.
Motherwell suffered one of their heaviest defeats this season against Rangers, on the road, last matchday. It was a totally one-sided game with Rangers scoring three first-half goals and four second-half goals, to take their final tally to seven. Motherwell did have the obvious disadvantage of being a man down since the 34th minute though.
Arfield and Grezda chipped in with braces for the hosts. The final scoreline read 7-1.
