Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
All eyes will be on Fir Park when Motherwell and Aberdeen go head to head in the Premiership round 19. The Well suffered a 3-1 loss to Rangers at the weekend, but their display in the Ibrox Stadium clash was anything but poor. Motherwell aim to retain their spot in top six, but keep in mind that the likes of Carroll, Carson, Donnelly, Dunne, and Fox are sidelined with injuries.
The Dons, on the other hand, recorded back-to-back wins over Ross County and Kilmarnock, and, no doubt, they are brimming with confidence ahead of the midweek clash. Aberdeen aim to overtake Celtic in second place in the standings, but the visitors should be happy with one point from Wednesday’s clash as well. The likes of Cerny, Devlin, Watkins, McGeouch and Wright are the away team’s absentees. All these players are struggling with injuries.
