Motherwell come into this game on the back of consecutive home draws against Celtic and Rangers. Can they complete a hat-trick of draws against the top-three of the Premiership when they host Aberdeen at Fir Park on Tuesday?
Last weekend, Well blew up a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Rangers, but in the end, it was a satisfactory result for the seventh-placed side in the Premiership.
With 37 points in their account, Well are clear of the relegation struggle, but it doesn’t look like they will be able to improve their position in the coming weeks.
Meanwhile, the Dons sit in the third spot with 59 points. They are level on points with second-placed Rangers, and they have a game in hand. Rangers won’t be involved during midweek, so the Dons have a golden opportunity to recapture the second spot in the table.
The visitors have won their last two games in the league, and last Saturday, they registered a comfortable 4-1 home win over St Johnstone.
However, they haven’t fared well against their opponents this season, and we predict a tough time for them on Saturday. In the league, both sides have played each other twice, and each game has ended in an away win. Well also registered a 2-0 win over their opponents in the League Cup back in November.
