Reason For Aberdeen vs Rangers Predictions

  • In terms of points accumulated, Rangers are the SPL’s best travelling team this season.
  • Aberdeen have conceded less goals on the road than they have at home during the current campaign.
  • Aberdeen have won just two of their last 10 home games against Rangers.

Dons look for third straight home win

Aberdeen may find themselves a considerable distance behind the front-running pair of Rangers and Celtic, but they’ve done well of late, winning four of their last five. They’ve also won each of their last two at Pittodrie, beating Kilmarnock and St. Mirren, scoring five and conceding one in the process. Facing Rangers is another kettle of fish, though The Dons ought to be confident after their recent exploits.

Wednesday’s hosts haven’t been as rampant at home as the top two, though they’ve not been easy to beat, losing just one of their seven in front of a home crowd. The problem is they’ve simply failed to compete when they’ve come up against the big boys. Celtic won 4-0 at Pittodrie. On that occasion, Aberdeen simply couldn’t get involved, as they failed to weather the storm defensively, while they struggled to make their presence felt, registering just two shots, neither of which hit the target. Much of the same can be said for when they took on Rangers at Ibrox. There they lost 5-0, conceding 32 shots and registering just three in reply.

Rangers continue push for top spot

The campaign to date has been a pleasing one as far as Rangers are concerned. Steven Gerrard’s men are behind league-leading Celtic on goal difference only, they’ve scored lots of goals, have conceded very few and have generally made light work of winning games, emerging victorious from 12 of their 14 league matches.

Even away from home, Rangers, who’ve scored an impressive 17 goals in seven travelling matches, have made light work of getting the job done. We’re in December and Gerrard’s title challengers are still unbeaten away from home. Every other team in the division has tasted defeat at least once on the road.

The away-day attacking exploits of Rangers have been impressive; but they’ve also thrived at the other end, conceding just three goals. In fact, what the Gers have done really well away from home is restrict teams. Rangers tend to give away few scoring chances on the road, while they’ve surrendered an average of just 2.14 shots on target.

More attacking joy for Rangers

When the pair met in the reverse fixture, Rangers’ attack proved too hot to handle. That is once again likely to be the case. Punters can profit by siding with ‘Rangers to Score Over 1.5 Goals.’ Aberdeen are by no means one of the SPL’s weakest teams but they remain a long way behind the big two. They’ve also struggled to keep clean sheets at home, shutting their opponents out in just two out of seven. This doesn’t bode well ahead of a game against a side that is averaging 2.43 goals away from home. Moreover, the reverse fixture, where Rangers scored five and rattled off no less than 11 shots on target, points towards a defensive struggle for the hosts.
