St. Johnstone vs Aberdeen
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Thursday, 20 August 2020
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: McDiarmid Park (Perth).

St. Johnstone was at the sixth spot in the campaign table last season, while Aberdeen finished at the fourth spot with a nine points lead over the host.

The Saints started the season slowly, with a draw and later a loss. Since the loss was against Rangers FC, it wouldn’t hurt the dugout much in spirits. They had picked up pace in their last league clash on the road against Kilmarnock as they won it with a 1-2 score on the board.

The 0-1 loss at home against Rangers FC will put Aberdeen in backhand in the game. However, it was their opening match this season, and we can expect them to open their scoring account in the upcoming clash, and if lucky return home with something from the fixture.

St. Johnstone vs Aberdeen Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Two of their recent three fixtures have ended in a draw.
  • Their previous encounter gave a 0-1 away win for the Saints.
  • Both teams have scored in two of the last three matches.
  • The visitor has recorded three of the last five overall wins.

St. Johnstone vs Aberdeen Prediction

St. Johnstone has played three matches by now, while Aberdeen is only up for their second clash in the season. It will give the host a slight edge in warming up for the game.

With a slight advantage on the home ground, Callum Davidson and his men will have a slight edge, but their h2h meetings with the Dons show a chance of a draw too.

So, the safest option for the punters will be a double chance favoring St. Johnstone in the encounter to yield decent returns. With the visitors cutting in close, the BTTS will also be a probable bet in the clash for the punters.
