Motherwell vs Hamilton Academical Prediction

Motherwell will be pumped up after their comeback win the last match-day, and that too on the road. They were pitted against Ross County, and keep special note that the winner had come in the 90+2nd minute for the victors.

Meanwhile, Hamilton tried their best to avoid a loss at home the prior game week, against St. Johnstone, but they could not prevent the sole goal and winner of the match being scored in the 81st minute.

As things stand, the tag of the favorites easily goes to Motherwell. They are one of the best teams in the league at the moment, and have the stats to back that claim. Excluding Celtic and Rangers, they have scored the most number of goals, and conceded the second-least.

On top of that they have the home advantage, and they are taking on a team placed second to last in the table.

Hamilton are one of the worst in the whole league, and have a total of three wins from their twenty fixtures. They are on the road as well, and interestingly, the team is yet to register a win on the road this whole league campaign. In fact, Hamilton remain the only squad yet to do so.

Moreover, nine of the previous twelve h2h wins had gone to Motherwell, and so did ten of the last fourteen at this venue. Also, Hamilton were able to score a total of just one goal from the last four h2h meetings at this venue, while the hosts scored twice or more in six of their preceding nine at this stadium.

Considering all these factors, rightfully expect Motherwell to record a crushing win this Sunday at the Fir Park.
