St. Johnstone vs St. Mirren
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 29 August 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: McDiarmid Park.
The Saints have not yet hit their stride this season, and have so far recorded a single win. And it needs to be noted that this win had come against one of the weakest teams at the moment.
Meanwhile, the Buddies have a case that is almost the entirely opposite. They have lost just once this campaign, and the defeat had come against toppers Rangers – who also happen to be the best in Scotland along with Celtic for the past several years.
Going on, Jim Goodwin’s men also have a game in hand, and should they win this fixture, they could climb to the third spot in the table.
Considering what’s at stake, and the current forms of both teams – expect a winning performance from St. Mirren this Saturday.
St. Johnstone vs St. Mirren: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Buddies are unbeaten against this opponent in the past four match-ups.
- They have not conceded a single goal in the last three games.
- The latest clash at this stadium had ended in a goalless draw.
- The latest h2h win saw Goodwin’s men recording a 2-0 scoreline at home.
St. Johnstone vs St. Mirren: Prediction
The Saints were winless in eight of their previous ten overall fixtures, and they have won a total of just seven times at home in the past 16-month period.
Meanwhile, their counterparts have lost just against four teams in total in their past 22 fixtures, and two of these teams were Celtic, and Rangers.
More importantly, Callum Davidson’s men have remained winless in all of their games this campaign except for a fixture against a bottom-placed team, while Goodwin’s men remained unbeaten in all of their match-ups, barring the one against Rangers.
On top of that, the Buddies also have been unbeaten against this rival in the previous four h2h clashes, and kept clean sheets in the last three of them.
Considering these factors, expect St. Mirren to have the edge this Saturday at the McDiarmid Park.
