St. Johnstone vs Aberdeen
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 10 April 2021
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: McDiarmid Park.
The Saints are placed sixth in the table, and they need a top-four finish to qualify for Europe – which means they will have to gain a surplus of nine points from the next five match-days.
It is surely a hard task, but since they have nothing to lose, they just might go for it. This weekend, they are at home, and are pitted against the fourth-placed Dons. And as such, this Saturday, Callum Davidson’s men could cut down the required surplus of nine points to six, since they are locking horns with a direct competitor for the spot.
Moreover, the Saints are going through a superb run at the moment, while their opposite number are struggling to deliver one good performance at least once in a while.
Likely, expect St. Johnstone to have the upper hand this weekend.
St. Johnstone vs Aberdeen: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest clash had ended in a goalless draw.

St. Johnstone vs Aberdeen Prediction
The Saints had won five of their past six overall games, and they were also unbeaten in 14 of their former 16 fixtures.
At home, they have also lost just once since December of 2020, and they had also kept clean sheets in all of their appearances at home in the period, barring their encounter against Celtic.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in 12 of their preceding 15 overall games, and they had also lost four of their previous five road trips.
Moreover, they have won just twice on the road since September of 2020, and one of these wins had come against a team from the lower divisions.
Considering these observations, expect St. Johnstone to post the three points on the board this weekend.
