Following Rangers’ recent slip-ups, Aberdeen must be sensing an opportunity to reclaim the second spot in the Premiership table. The Dons will be favourites to claim all three points when they host St Johnstone at Pittodrie on Saturday.
The Dons put an end to a run of three games without a win with a 1-0 home win over Dundee before the international break. They currently occupy the third spot with 56 points, but they have a game in hand on Rangers, placed second with 58 points.
The Saints were involved in midweek league action, and they claimed a 1-0 home win over Hamilton Academical. The win helped the Saints move further away from the relegation battle, and they are now placed seventh in the table with 37 points.
Coming into this game, the Saints have picked up three wins from their last six games and have collected ten points from this run. The Dons have picked up the same number of points from their last six games, but we expect them to claim a comfortable home win on Saturday. The Dons have the second-best home form in the league this season, and they have lost only one of their last ten home games.
These two sides have played each other twice in the Premiership this season, and both games have ended in 3-0 wins for the Dons.
