Following their 3-0 defeat at Celtic Park last weekend, Aberdeen will be keen to return to the winning ways when Partick Thistle visit Pittodrie on Wednesday evening.
The defeat to the Hoops ended Dons’ run of three consecutive wins and also their title hopes. However, they still occupy the second spot in the league table with 39 points from 20 games.
Dons sit only three points ahead of Rangers, but can they cement their grip on the second spot heading into the New Year?
The hosts certainly boast of an impressive record against Partick in the recent years, and we think that they will comfortably grab three points at home on Wednesday.
Partick narrowly defeated Hamilton at home on the weekend to register their only fourth win of the season. The 1-0 win helped them move off the bottom of the table. They currently occupy the 11th spot with 17 points and are just one point above bottom-placed Ross County.
The visitors have lost their last six league meetings with Aberdeen and suffered a 3-4 home defeat against their opponents earlier this season.
