Ross County vs Hamilton Academical
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 3 August 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Victoria Park (Dingwall).
Ross County performed like a team possessed last season, which saw them rightfully getting a ticket to the top-tier Premiership. They had blasted away opponents in their Championship campaign, and scored the most number of goals, conceded the least, and had an astonishing 15-point lead over the third-placed team in the table.
Fans hope their team could keep the same momentum going for this new league too. They have been afforded an easier opponent in the form of Hamilton, who really had struggled to avoid relegation all season. They also had scored the least number of goals, conceded the most and registered the worst goal difference too.

- Eight of the last nine wins at this venue went to the hosts.
Ross County vs Hamilton Academical Prediction
The County has been in form for quite some time. They had been on a roll all through the last season, and have continued the run in the pre-season too. They won the last five fixtures on the trot and scored two or more goals in ten of their last eleven matches. At home, they are unbeaten in their last 17 ties, and registered two or more goals in 12 of their last 15, while keeping clean sheets in five of the last six.
In addition, eight of the last nine h2h ties saw home wins, and eight of the last nine at this venue went to Ross County as well. As such, counting in the struggles of Hamilton last time around, consider the hosts favorite to post the three points on the board.
But do consider that Ross is coming from the lower division and that they have conceded two or more goals in four of the last five h2h meetings. Also, 10 of the last 13 such encounters and the last five at this venue had goals from both teams too.
With these in mind, a clean sheet for County is kind of out of the question.
