Motherwell vs Dundee United
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 8 August 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Fir Park (Motherwell).
Motherwell started the season with a 1-0 loss on the road against Ross County. Stephen Robinson has time to pick up his team from that loss to a weaker side. They can only hope that they restrict their dip in form to the away games.
Since they are playing at home for the next match, the Well can work out on their home ground advantage in the fixture.
Dundee United’s champion title in the second division earned them a spot back in the Premiership after four years in their calendar. Their start was not shaky with a draw at home against St. Johnston in the campaign schedule.
Visiting on the back of a trail of losing streaks on the road against their fellow second-tier teams, the Terrors pose only a minor threat to the home team.

Motherwell vs Dundee United Prediction
Motherwell’s troubles are only in their away games in the league. Their second-runners-up position in the table last season was proof for their strong form in the campaign.
The host has home ground advantage and facing a promoted side at home will not be a challenge for the Well, even after returning on the back of an away loss.
The draw no bet over Motherwell with 1.50 odds will probably be the best bet for the punters. The tip for over 1.5 goals will also come in handy in the encounter based on their h2h history.
