Motherwell vs Kilmarnock Prediction & Match Preview

Motherwell vs Kilmarnock
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Wednesday, 30 December 2020
Kick-off at 18:15 UK/ 19:15 CET
Venue: Fir Park.

These two might be the worst in the whole competition along with Ross County at the moment. Both are on long winless runs, and have conceded a magnitude of goals in the process.

Suffice it to say that either team is getting desperate for a turnaround in their fortunes. The first phase of the league season is about to be over, and the cut-off to get included in the Championship Group is getting harder to attain each passing game week.

As of now, Killie are placed eighth in the table, while their opposite number are placed ninth – and both have the same number of points.

However, the seventh-placed St. Mirren are pitted against toppers Rangers this Thursday, and this presents a promising opportunity for the Steelmen and their counterparts.

Whoever wins at the Fir Park will have a chance to get closer towards the cut-off, and for the reason, a fierce encounter is on the cards.

On top of that, with the kind of defnese either squad has been showing lately, expect plenty of goals as well this Wednesday.

Motherwell vs Kilmarnock: Prediction

The Steelmen are on an eight-game winless run, and have a single clean sheet in the past two months. At home, they had lost four of their preceding five appearances, and had conceded a total of ten goals in the process.

On the other hand, their counterparts are on a five-fixture losing run, and have conceded two or more goals in their latest four match-ups.

And on the road, they were winless in 16 of their former 20 attempts, and have a single clean sheet in a league game on the road all through 2020.

Considering these stats, and the desperation of both teams to secure a win – expect goals from both teams at the Fir Park.
