Reason For Motherwell vs Dundee United Predictions

  • Motherwell have won two of 10 Premiership games in 2020
  • The hosts won less than half of their home games last term
  • Dundee United lost just two of their last 20 league games
  • The visitors have drawn four of their last six matches, losing just once

Solid start for Tangerines

Dundee United kicked off their Premiership return with a point, holding St Johnstone to a draw at home last time out. Now they’re on the road to a Motherwell side who are looking forward to European football in the Autumn. However, Well’s chances of securing a top-four finish could be in doubt after a loss on Monday continued their poor form.

The hosts may have enjoyed an impressive season, but the manner in which they finished it before the league was halted casts doubt on their chances in this campaign and in their opening home clash of the season. Their finish here was far from comfortable, so we give Dundee United a chance to get something in our predictions for this clash.

Troubles at home for Well

The hosts were able to pip Aberdeen to a top-three finish in last season’s campaign, but they didn’t finish like a side who were going for Europe. In 2020, Motherwell had the league’s third-worst record, securing a point less than Hearts who were relegated. The Fir Park side won only two of their last nine games, which suggests that they were sliding down the table before the fixtures stopped.

Their issues at home predate those results, as they have won once in six matches at this ground, dating back to mid-December. Overall last term, Motherwell had the seventh-best home record in the division. They won less than half of their home matches, while they conceded as many as they scored, shipping 23 goals in just 15 games.

Visitors can take chance

Dundee United have the opportunity to dent Motherwell once again here, while we think the value lies with the visitors. The home side shouldn’t be sitting at evens for the victory when they have only two wins from their last 10 matches in the Premiership.

Dundee United were hard to beat in last season’s run-in, while they picked that up of late. The Tangerines have lost just twice across their last 20 league games, which points to them adding to Motherwell’s issues. We’re backing the visitors on the Double Chance market, while a 1-1 draw is our correct score pick having seen the visitors draw four of their last six.
