Rangers to take the points
Aberdeen have won four of their last five league games, but they don’t do well against Rangers; The Dons have no wins in their last nine clashes with Rangers, with three draws and six losses. On the other hand, Rangers have been unstoppable this season, especially in the Premiership; they’ve won all of their last nine league games, and are unbeaten in their last 18 league games. Considering Rangers have won four of their last five encounters with Aberdeen, we’re making the prediction that Rangers will win.
Goals for both sides
Rangers have been one of the best defensive teams in the Premiership this season; only Celtic have conceded fewer goals than The Gers. The thing is, they’re going up against an Aberdeen side that has scored in five of their last six games; as a matter of fact, Aberdeen have scored almost two goals per game on average in their last five games. Most of Aberdeen’s goals came at home, they’ve scored eight goals in their last three home games alone. It’s worth pointing out that meetings between these two have mostly been on the high-scoring side; all of their last four meetings have seen at least three goals scored, with three of those games going over 3.5. For this reason, we believe that both teams will find the net.
Gers to lead at the break
We’ve mentioned that Rangers have won all of their last nine league games; we should also mention that they have a tendency to score the first goal. The Gers have drawn first blood in all of their last nine games across all competitions; because they tend to score first, Rangers have led at half-time in most of their games. Giovanni Van Bronckhorst’s men have led at half-time in five of their last six games. In the same vein, Rangers tend to draw first blood when they play against Aberdeen; as they’ve done so in four of their last five encounters. Considering Rangers have led at half-time in four of those five games, we should expect a similar outcome here.
