Aberdeen hosts Rangers in the scottish league on wednesday, Both teams come to this match with winning streaks as Aberdeen have won 2 and Rangers 3 in a row. However during the last 5 games 3 for hosts and all 5 for visitors went over 2.5 goals. Last 5 h2h games have stayed under so i feel it's definitely about time to see highscoring game between these teams. It's got to be goals for me here and all the trends are pointing towards a high scoring game. 3 of Aberdeen's last 5 home games have gone overs whilst the last Rangers's 3 away games have also gone overs.
Celtic lead the Scottish Premiership by six points and host out-of-form Hibs on Wednesday. The same evening, second-placed Rangers travel to Aberdeen who are third and a draw could be a nightmare result for both of them. Aberdeen are two points behind their opponents but have won three of their last four league games. They had to come from behind on Saturday to get a 2-1 win at Hibs and return to Pittodrie looking to improve their home form. Aberdeen have failed to win either of their last two home matches losing to Celtic and then being held to a goalless draw by Kilmarnock. Previous home games against Rangers have seen no wins since 2016 but the last two have both been drawn 1-1. Rangers had a 4-0 home win over St Mirren at the weekend. Three of their goals were penalties and they missed another one! That win kept them six points behind Celtic and they have won two of their last three away league games, though they did lose recently at Kilmarnock. Away form has been a bit patchy this season with only five wins out of 12. This should be a closely fought game and the tip is for under 2.5 goals to be scored.
Celtic easily won the Scottish Premiership last season but it's not been so straightforward ths time around. Finally though they are starting to dominate and are now five points clear at the top of the table. They have won their last three league games and kept a clean sheet in each of them. That includes a 2-0 home win over St Johnstone in midweek. Their away form isn't great with just one win in their last four but that's been aganist tougher opposition than St Johnstone. The home side must dread home games against Celtic. Earlier in the season they lost 6-0 at home to them and their last four league games at home to the champions has seen them concede 19 goals. St Johnstone are sixth in the Scottish Premiership but have lost their last two league games without scoring. Only one of their last five home league games has been won and this looks booked for Celtic to get the win leading at half and full time.
Kilmarnock can move up to second place in the Scottish Premiership if they can beat Hearts in this game. The home side are currently third and could even move level on points with leaders Celtic, but only if they fail to beat St Johnstone on Wednesday evening. Kilmarnock are unbeaten in their last seven league and cup games since losing to Celtic in early December. Only two of their last 19 league and cup games have been lost and they will be looking to win their seventh straight home league game. Their most recent home league game saw them beat Rangers to add to a previous win earlier in the season over Celtic. Hearts are fifth i the table and one of only two teams to win a league game at Kilmarnock this season. That was back in August when they were in great form but three months later they lost 1-0 at home to Kilmarnock. That was shown when Kilmarnock went to Hearts and returned with all three points. The defeat was during their nightmare slump when winning just one out of ten league and cup games. The past month has seen them turn things around with a run of four wins and one defeat, though only one of those games has been played away from home. Their away form has seen them win just one of their last six games, Kilmarnock are so strong at home at present and can be backed to get the three points.
Celtic have by far, once again, been the strongest team in the country this season and they seem well on course for another league title. Their home form has been superb and ahead of this game they have not conceded a goal at home in the last five matches across all competitions, and they have scored 16 goals in the five games. In the Premiership, they have scored 18 and conceded one in the last five home matches, while they have picked maximum points in the 11 home matches they have had this season. St. Johnston had picked a good run, of four straight wins until they were stopped on Saturday by Hearts in a 2 – 0 loss. They have a tough run with matches against Celtic back to back. It will be so tough for them to get anything from either game, though they have just one loss in the last seven away games. The last time they met Celtic, they were beaten 6 – 0 and they have not managed a goal against Celtic in the last four meetings. They have also not beaten Celtic in the last nine meetings. Head to head, in 56 meetings, Celtic have 41 wins and St. Johnstone have eight.
The Scottish Premiership title race took another twist as Kilmarnock beat Rangers 2-1 on Wednesday evening. Steven Gerrard's team now three points behind leaders Celtic and have played a game more. The loss to Kilmarnock ended a run of six league games without a defeat and they have only lost two of their last 14. The early season saw Rangers struggle on their league travels with only two points from their first four games including a 1-0 loss at Livingston at the end of September. Form improved though with four wins and two draws before the loss to Kilmarnock on Wednesday evening. They will have been pleased that Jermaine Defoe scored on his debut for the club and he could prove a vital player for the rest of the season. Livingston are seventh in the table but are the typical mid-table side, They are 12 points off the Europa League places and 17 clear of the relegation play-off position. Midweek saw them lose 1-0 away to St Johnstone, their second straight 1-0 defeat after losing at Hearts in the Scottish Cup. They have gone four league games without a win and lost their last home league game 2-1 to Aberdeen. Before that they had won three games in a row. This won't be easy for Rangers but they can't afford to drop more points, go for Rangers to get the victory.
Kilmarnock have lost just once in the last 11 matches, and that was against Celtic. They have hit the right form in the recent past and they are just breathing below Celtic. They have taken a few setbacks here but there but generally it has been smoother for Kilmarnock. Among the stakes in this game is going top of the log, with Kilmarnock being a point below Celtic on 44 points; Aberdeen are three points off Celtic. Two of the last five games between the two sides have yielded over 2.5 goals. There will be no holding back in this game, the stakes are high and both teams will know what it takes to pick a win from this match. In 90 meetings between the two sides, Aberdeen have managed 41 wins and Kilmarnock 21
Celtic have the biggest goal difference and have scored the most goals and conceded the least in the league. They have an unblemished record at home, with 10 wins in 10; their four losses in the season have all come away from home. Further, no team has outscored them at home, or conceded fewer. Taking on Hamilton has doom written all over, with the visitors winless in their last eight matches, seven of those being losses. They have four straight losses and without a goal in the four matches. Their only win in the last 11 away matches came against St. Mirren and all the rest, bar one, were losses. They have only scored in two of the 11 matches away from home, the only times they have suffered losses. Celtic have gone unbeaten in 13 matches against Hamilton and they have won each of the last eight. In 23 meetings between the two sides, Celtic have won 20 and lost one.
