Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Aberdeen will look to build on a 2-1 win over Livingston when they take on Motherwell in the Premiership round 20. The Dons are eyeing their fourth consecutive at home in all competitions. Defender Jack Mackenzie is a major doubt and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off. Barry Robson is likely to stick to the 3-5-2 formation.
The Well, meanwhile, suffered a 2-0 loss to Rangers at the weekend, with the team extending their winless run in the Premier League to 15 games. As Aberdeen have been producing fine displays at home of late, we predict that the visitors are going to return to North Lanarkshire with their hands empty. All Dan Casey, Lennon Miller, and Pape Souare are major doubts, while Calum Butcher is a major doubt and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off. In their last encounter at the venue Aberdeen defeated Motherwell 3-1.
