Motherwell vs Dundee FC
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 27 April 2019
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Fir Park, Motherwell
Dundee sit rock-bottomed on the Premiership table and travelling to Fir Park with an eight-game losing streak, it’s hard to believe they have what it takes to secure top-flight survival at this point. They’ve struggled to score goals and found the net just once in the last seven outings, which will be just as worrying Jim McIntyre.
Motherwell will now hope to capitalize on such woes too but they have no high stakes to play for after failing to make the top 6 cut, now looking to end a three-game winless streak – where they saw comfortable losses to Aberdeen and Rangers late in the first phase and a 1-1 draw at Hamilton last week.
Well have been in great shape at home ground, though, and the loss to Gers only ended a five-game winning streak. They’ve beaten Hibernian, Livingston, Hearts, Hamilton, and St. Johnstone since late January, with clean sheets on four of those occasions and this promises a strong challenge on Saturday too.
Motherwell vs Dundee FC: Head-to-head
Motherwell have beaten Dundee in all of the last six head-to-head encounters.

Dundee have last beaten Motherwell at this ground in April 2017, when they snatched a thriller 2-3 win.
Motherwell vs Dundee FC: Prediction
We will now back Motherwell to secure all three points and extend the despair Dundee find themselves in at this point, where a Home win at 1.80 looks great value. Still, we expect another narrow occasion and this should prove another such contest between the sides in a row.
With that in mind, we’re going for a low-scoring clash at Fir Park and we’re going for Under 2.5 goals FT at 1.80, which could as well prove the best approach to the match. We’ve seen Dundee struggling to score goals but they rarely concede many either, which adds evidence to such a belief here.
