Aberdeen to find a way
Aberdeen have struggled a lot this season; they’ve won just one of their last 11 games across all competitions. However, despite their poor form, Aberdeen have been relatively better than Dundee; Mark McGhee’s men are last on the Premiership table, with just five wins in 31 league games. Additionally, Dundee have lost their last three games; they are without a win in their last seven games, with two draws and five losses. It’s also worth noting that Aberdeen lost just one of their last 18 encounters with Dundee; as a matter of fact, Aberdeen won 14 of the last 15 meetings between these teams. For this reason, we’re making the prediction that Aberdeen will win.
Goals at both ends
We have already established that both teams have struggled to win games in recent weeks; we should also point out that they have not been very good defensively. Dundee FC have seen their defence breached in their last four, and six of their last seven games; in like manner, Aberdeen conceded in all of their last 11 games across all competitions. Conversely, Aberdeen have scored their fair share of goals; they found the back of the net in eight of their last 10 games. Furthermore, meetings between these teams tend to feature goals at both ends; as both teams scored in four of their last five clashes. Considering both teams scored in eight of Aberdeen’s last 10 games, both teams should score today.
A high scoring match
Finally, we’ll take a look at the over/under goals market. Clashes between Dundee and Aberdeen have mostly been on the high-scoring side; four of their last five encounters went above the 2.5 goal margin. In the same vein, Dundee FC have been involved in a lot of high-scoring games; as seven of their last 10 games went over 2.5. On that note, we should expect a few goals in this match.

Dundee vs Aberdeen: Team News
Dundee FC have been the worst team in the Premiership this season; they are coming off three consecutive losses, and have no wins in their last seven games. Mark McGhee’s men will hope to snap their losing streak as they host Aberdeen; it’ll be interesting to see how they’ll fare with Danny Mullen leading the attack.
Aberdeen are having their worst season in a long time; they are 10th on the 12 team Premiership table, with just nine wins from 31 games. Jim Goodwin finally got his first win in charge of Aberdeen in their previous match; he’ll be hoping to get his second consecutive win, with the help of Christian Ramirez.
