Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Dundee United take on St. Johnstone at Tannadice Park on their return to the Scotland Premier League. The Terrors can’t wait for the season to begin, and, one thing is for sure, they will leave their hearts on the field in Saturday’s football match. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Lawrence Shankland, who scored 24 goals in 26 appearances in the Championship last term.
The Saints, on the other hand, were sitting in the 7th position in the standings when the season was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Saint Johnstone are eyeing a top-six finish in the upcoming season, but, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from Saturday’s clash against Dundee United. The two teams last met in the Premier League four years ago, with Dundee United beating St Johnstone 1-0.
