The Scottish League Cup Quarter Finals get underway this week and one of the more intriguing looking match-ups is the tie between Motherwell and Aberdeen. Inside our Motherwell vs Aberdeen preview, we dissect what should be a fierce battle between two sets of players intent on securing a place in the Semi Finals. The teams are in decent shape and relatively injury-free ahead of the game at Fir Park, making the most update football betting odds well worth investigating.

Well are unbeaten in four Scottish Premiership fixtures and will bring some serious momentum into Thursday’s clash. They drew 2-2 at Hibernian last time out, having beaten Ross County, Hearts and Kilmarnock in three straight home wins before that. Their home form is worth noting in our Motherwell vs Aberdeen betting tips – Steve Robinson’s Steelmen have only lost once in seven now at their own ground.

2nd placed Dons are unbeaten in their opening six SPL games in the run-up to this week’s Motherwell vs Aberdeen predictions. They had won their first four matches, but their flow has been interrupted of late, having been held against Hearts and Kilmarnock in their last two matches. Derek McInnes will be concerned that his defence has kept just four clean sheets in twelve competitive contests since their season began.

In 2016/17, Aberdeen won all three games against Motherwell, beating them 3-1, 7-2 and 1-0 in their most recent meeting in March. In fact, Well have only taken the points against the Dons once in their last ten encounters.

Motherwell vs Aberdeen Prediction and Betting Advice

The Dons excellent recent record against the Steelmen pushes them out as favourites to win on Thursday and that’s the first selection for our Motherwell vs Aberdeen picks. Derek McInnes has yet to see his team lose domestically in the new campaign – their only loss came in a Europa League qualifier against Cypriot side Apollon Limassol. Well can point to formidable numbers at Fir Park, but their opponents won 3-1 the last time they played there just before the New Year. 24-year-old Scottish striker Stevie May has scored three times in his last four appearances for the visitors, making him one to look out for on Thursday. Celtic  are the only Scottish side to have beaten the Dons since May. They are the second strongest side in the county and should have enough to end Motherwell’s League Cup dreams. Bet-at-home odds represent the best value for our first pick, beating their competitors.

Aberdeen can be considered one of Scottish football’s strongest sides, however, defensively they are far from watertight. Four clean sheets in twelve is not the kind of statistics you’d associate with a top team, so we are tipping both teams to score in our Scottish football predictions. Motherwell have played eleven competitive matches since the summer and no team has managed to stop them from scoring. Their 100% match scoring rate can almost be matched by their Quarter Final rivals – the Dons have scored in eight of their ten fixtures since mid-summer. In seven of the last eight duels between our analysed clubs, both teams got on the scoresheet. Dafabet’s prices get you the best bang for your buck for this selection.
