Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Ross County and Aberdeen go head to head at Global Energy Stadium in the Premiership round 24. Ross County did well to beat Hibernian on the road in their last game in 2020, but following a 1-1 draw with St. Johnstone, they suffered a 3-1 loss to Livingston in their last league match. The Staggies have recorded no more than one win at home ground this season, which is probably the main reason why we are not tempted to put our money on John Hughes’ troops.
The Dons, on the other hand, suffered a 2-1 loss to Rangers in their last league match, but it has to be noted that attacker Ryan Hedges was sent off after 25 minutes. Hedges returns to contention after serving his ban in the midweek clash against Livingston. Aberdeen showed character in the 2-1 loss to Rangers, and seeing that Ross McCrorie is back and available, away win should be considered.
Highlighted Player (Ross Doohan):
Born in Clydebank, Scotland on March 29, 1998, Ross Doohan is a talented goalkeeper who plays for Ross County on loan from Celtic. Doohan is a product of the Celtic football academy, but he has yet to see a game action with the Hoops in the Premiership.
The 186-cm tall shot-stopper played for the likes of Cumbernauld Colts, Greenock Morton, and Ayr United as well before signing a loan deal with Ross County. Ross Doohan made his Ross County debut in the Premier League in a goalless draw with Hibernian on October 17, 2020.
Speaking of his international career, the Ross County goalkeeper has 11 caps with the Scotland U21 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the senior team. He made his debut for the U21 team in a 1-1 draw with Togo U21 at the 2018 World Youth Festival in Toulon. His preferred foot is right.
Highlighted Team (Aberdeen):
Nicknamed the Dons, Aberdeen are professional football club that compete in the Scottish Premiership. Pittodrie Stadium is the club’s home ground, and it can hold up to 20,866 spectators. The Dons were one of the dominant forces in Scottish football during Sir Alex Ferguson’s era, with the team winning three Scottish League titles from 1980 to 1985.
However, Aberdeen clinched their first domestic trophy in the 1954/55 season, with the team finishing the process three points clear of Scottish giants Celtic. The club’s biggest success came in the 1982/83 season when they defeated the famous Spanish club Real Madrid 2-1 in the title game. Later in 1983, Aberdeen won the UEFA Super Cup as they defeated Hamburger SV 2-0 at Volksparkstadion.
The Dons are well known for their red home kit, while away shirt has a shiny gold base colour. Inverness Caledonian are considered one of the club’s biggest rivals, with the two teams facing each other in the North derby.
