Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Global Energy Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Ross County and Aberdeen, the two teams who sit in the top six ahead of Matchday 13. Ross County aim to put an end to their six-game winless run, but given their shaky defence, home win should not be considered. The Staggies have been struggling at the back of late, with the team conceding 16 goals in total in the previous five league fixtures.
The Dons, on the other hand, proved their worth in back-to-back wins over Hamilton and Kilmarnock. Given their fine away record in the 2019/2020 Scottish Premier League season, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the visiting team. You should bear in mind that Aberdeen defeated Ross County in each of their previous six meetings in the Scottish elite division. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be English rising star Sam Cosgrove, who looks unstoppable at the moment.
Highlighted Player (Marcus Fraser):
Marcus Fraser is a Scottish footballer who plays for Ross County as a defender. Fraser is a product of Celtic football school, but he made no more than one appearance for the Hoops in the Scottish Premier League. He played his only game for the Scottish giants in a 3-1 win at Inverness on February 9, 2013.
After ending his loan spell with Cowdenbeath, Marcus Fraser signed a deal with Ross County in 2015. Over the years, the defender has established himself as a first-team regular with the Staggies, making 26 appearances in the Scottish top flight last term.
Speaking of his international career, Fraser has five caps for the Scotland U21 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the senior team. His main position on the field is a right-back, but he is capable of producing good performances as a centre-back as well. Marcus Fraser was born in Bishopbriggs, Scotland, on June 23, 1994.
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.
