Rangers vs Aberdeen
Date: Sunday, 22 November 2020
Kick-Off at 12.00 UK
Venue: Ibrox Stadium, Glasgow.
Rangers have been furious in Premiership and sit top of the table with a nine-point gap behind them, having played two games more than Celtic in the second and Aberdeen in the third.
They host Dons with a streak of six league wins behind them and a clean sheet on the last five occasions, which will have Steven Gerrard’s men in a great mood.
Gers have shown off their character in Europa League too and sit top of the Group D table with a 3-3 draw snatched at Benfica, which gives them just as much ground to build on with a busy schedule ahead. They kept clean sheets in seven of their last eight games across competitions and we now expect a similar challenge at Ibrox.
Aberdeen beat Hibernian (2-0) ahead of the break to bounce from a similar loss suffered at Celtic (2-0) beforehand. They’ve been tough to outgun and regularly show off as such a side, but causing an upset now will be a difficult task.
Dons failed to find the net on their last two trips, which could be more worrying at this point.
Rangers vs Aberdeen Head-to-head
- Rangers beat Aberdeen (0-1) in early August to end a streak of two draws in head-to-head clashes.
- Aberdeen last beat Rangers in FA Cup back in 2019 (0-2).
- Gers bagged three wins and two draws in five encounters since., conceding on just one of those occasions.
Rangers vs Aberdeen Prediction
We will now back Rangers to keep hold of their near-perfect run across competitions and we’ll go for them to turn a rather narrow contest their way on Sunday.
We see them putting on a rock-solid defensive display again too and we’ll thus go for Gers to win to Nil at 2.00!
Still, we don’t feel it will be a one-sided contest and we’ll now rather go for a low-scoring game in Glasgow. We’re backing Under 2.5 Goals FT at 2.10, after seeing two or fewer in both of their last two head-to-head clashes as well as five of the last seven since March 2019.
We hope Dons will be solid challengers and they should keep it together at the back too.
