St Johnstone vs Aberdeen
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 23rd February 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: McDiarmid Park (Perth).
St.Johnstone may occupy a position in the Championship Group, but their recent form is exactly that of St.Mirren, the dead-last team in the league table. Four losses and a draw in their last five matches. On top of that, they welcome Aberdeen, a team in pursuit of a top-three finish, and who is amply justifying it with their performances.
It deserves special mention that Aberdeen has lost just twice in their last 14 match-days, and it came against Rangers and Celtic, the current top two sides in the Premiership.
On the other hand, the hosts have been struggling particularly in the offensive half of the pitch, with their last six fixtures returning just a single goal for them. One thing’s for sure, the visit by the consistent Aberdeen is not going to end well for the home team.
