Motherwell vs Hamilton Academical
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 22 August 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Fir Park.
The Steelmen were the best team in the competition the last season after the two titans – Celtic and Rangers, and had secured a third-place finish below them. However, they have made a slow start to their campaign this time around, and to be frank, are desperate for the three points this weekend.
They however have been allotted the perfect match-up this Saturday. The team is pitted against possibly the worst squad in the league at the moment.
The Accies are placed dead-last in the table as of now, and they have a 100% losing record so far this season. They have also conceded the most number of goals so far of all the teams in the tournament, and have scored a total of just one goal in return.
Moreover, they also do have a worrying h2h record against this opponent over the years.
Likely, expect Motherwell to make use of this opportunity, and post a much-needed win on the board.

Motherwell vs Hamilton Academical: Prediction
Brian Rice’s men were lucky to avoid relegation the last season, after managing to finish just above Heart the last season, who ultimately were relegated. This time however, the Accies have made a 100% losing start to their campaign, and are expectedly placed dead-last in the table.
They have conceded the most number of goals so far, and have hit back just one in return. They have also won a total of just four times on the road since May of 2019.
Meanwhile, their counterparts were one of the best teams the last season, and had even qualified for the qualifying stages of the Europa League.
They are desperate for a win this weekend, as they have not made an impressive start to their league campaign, and it goes without saying that they will make full use of this match-up against this minnow.
Moreover, the Steelmen also do have a great h2h record against them over the years. And as such, expect a win from Motherwell this Saturday.
