Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
McDiarmid Park will host a postponed Premiership game between St Johnstone and Aberdeen, the two bottom-table sides. The Saints aim to put an end to their three-game winless run and they are likely to fight tooth and nail in the midweek clash. Ukraine midfielder Maksym Kucheriavyi has overcome his injury, while all Sam McClelland, Drey Wright, and Alistair Crawford remain in the treatment room.
The Dons, on the other hand, have won three of their last four league matches. Aberdeen aim to build on a 3-0 win over Ross County and given St Johnstone’s poor form, away win should be considered. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team ahead of the trip to Perth. In their last meeting at the venue Aberdeen defeated St Johnstone thanks to Remi Matthews’ own goal and we predict that history is going to repeat itself.
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.
