Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Saturday’s football game at Fir Park pits together Motherwell and Aberdeen, the two teams who are almost level on points ahead of Matchday 5. Aberdeen aim to remain undefeated in the 2021/22 Premiership season, but this match will be anything but a walk in the park for the visitors. Christian Ramirez, who joined the club in the summer transfer window, will be the man to watch in the away team, while defender Andy Considine remains on the sidelines with a long-term injury.
The Well, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Livingston and Dundee. Motherwell are high on confidence ahead of the visit of Aberdeen, but seeing that the two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment, the share of spoils is on the horizon. Ireland defender Jake Carroll is banned for the hosts.
