Partick Thistle vs Dundee FC
Scottish Premiership – Season 2017/18
Date: Saturday, 17th February 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Firhill Stadium (Glasgow).
The last two home games played by Patrick Thistle were not in their favor. They lost a matchup against Celtic in January which saw a 1-2 score line at fulltime and against Rangers in a 0-2 thrashing in February. One thing that can’t go unnoticed is the fact that the home side always strives to hold onto a tight defensive line during most of their matches. Even if their opponents penetrated, they wouldn’t score twice or more during the first half. As a matter of fact, they beat Celtic 1-0 at halftime before the away team coming back to win the match at 2-1.
Dundee FC is coming into this match having suffered a 3-2 defeat courtesy of Kilmarnock-in their latest away match played on Tuesday this week. This outcome was a surprise since it was expected that Dundee Fc would equalize against Patrick’s 10 men after a red card was given. Dundee Fc has lost their last 3 league games. However, Dundee Fc is above their opponents in this game in the league standings with only 1 point difference. This means that a loss in this game will see the two teams interchange positions in the league standings: where Patrick Thistle will be ahead with 2 points. Dundee Fc must win this match to keep their run for better performance in the league.

Patrick Thistle will be looking forward to revenging their latest away loss to Dundee FC and put them down in this matchup.
