Motherwell vs Aberdeen
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Wednesday, 23 December 2020
Kick-off at 18:15 UK/ 19:15 CET
Venue: Fir Park.
The Dons are placed third in the table, and are level on points with the second-placed Celtic – who also happen to be the defending champions. The former also have a game in hand, and are currently on a long unbeaten run in the league.
In fact, their sole two losses in the Premiership in the past three months had come against toppers Celtic, and Rangers.
Meanwhile, the Steelmen are currently going through one of the worst runs for any team in the whole league.
They are struggling to secure at least a single win once in a while, and are conceding goals in plenty. They are also on a losing run in the past two months at home.
Likely, expect Aberdeen to have the upper hand this Wednesday at the Fir Park.
However, note that Stephen Robinson’s men have a good h2h record against this opponent over the years, and had recorded a compelling win against them just two months back.
On top of that, their counterparts have also been experiencing difficulties in their road fixtures lately.
As such, expect goals to come from both sides of the pitch this Wednesday.
Motherwell vs Aberdeen: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last time these two locked horns were back in September, and then the Steelmen recorded a 0-3 win on the road.
- They also have a 100% winning record in 2020.
- At this venue, the hosts have scored three or more goals in three of the former six clashes.
- The preceding twelve encounters were evenly split into six wins each for either team.
Motherwell vs Aberdeen: Prediction
Robinson’s men had lost five of their last six overall games, and they had conceded a total of 14 goals in the process. They were also winless in 15 of their preceding 20 fixtures at home, and have a total of just three clean sheets at this venue in 17 appearances.
On the other hand, their counterparts were unbeaten in ten of their past thirteen overall match-ups, and they are on a two-game winning run at present – scoring two or more goals in both.
As such, expect the in-form Aberdeen to be the better team on the pitch this Wednesday.
However, note that Derek McInnes’s men have a single win on the road since September, and they have a troubling h2h record against this opponent in recent times – including a 0-3 loss at home just two months back.
For the reasons, expect goals to come from both teams at the Fir Park.
