Our prediction for this Scottish Cup match:
Motherwell and Aberdeen take on each other at Fir Park in what is expected to be a close Scottish Cup game. The Well have been struggling in the Premiership of late, with the team losing to both Celtic (0-4) and Dundee United (0-2) in the previous two league fixtures. Motherwell are desperate to get back on course, but they will have a big fish to fry in Saturday’s clash. All Tierney, van Veen, and Cornelius are hoping to sneak into the starting XI, while Barry Maguire and Ricki Lamie are rated doubtful for the match.
The Dons, on the other hand, aim to make amends for back-to-back losses to Livingston and Celtic. Aberdeen are eager to return to winning ways as well, and, taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. All Marley Watkins, Andrew Considine, and Michael Devlin continue to miss out with injuries for the visiting side.
