Bitesize Prediction: Aberdeen vs Rangers – 26/11/23

Competition: Scottish Premiership

Market: Rangers win

Odds: 8/15 @ BetUS

Desperate to make up some ground in the Premiership title chase, Rangers will make the trip to Pittodrie when they meet Aberdeen.

Starting with the hosts, while Aberdeen might have gained a string of plaudits last season as they secured another bronze medal finish among Scotland’s elite, the Dons have come crashing back down to earth this time around. Heading into November’s international break with a nightmare performance away at defending champions Celtic as they slumped to a woeful 6-0 drumming, Barry Robson’s side are in the midst of a major Premiership struggle. Already crashing out of the Europa Conference League after collecting just two points from their four Group G appearances, Aberdeen will be more than aware that they face a stern examination here. Signing off October with another worrying display as they were hit with a 2-0 loss against Kilmarnock, Sunday’s hosts have recorded just a pair of wins from their previous eight contests across all formats – a run that stems back to September 30th. Likewise, recording just a single victory at Pittodrie since opening up the 2023/24 campaign. Robson’s side have also gained a reputation for their continued defensive struggles.

As for the visitors, while Rangers might face a real uphill battle in their bid to dethrone Celtic this season, the Blues did enter November’s international break in the midst of a real purple patch. Last seen earlier in the month clinching a 2-0 victory away at Livingston, Philippe Clemont’s side are riding a major wave of momentum. Sat firmly in pole position to punch a Europa League knockout stage ticket this season, the former Monaco boss has seen his high-flying squad win each of their previous five appearances across all formats by an aggregate score of 14-3, Rangers should be smelling a golden opportunity this weekend. It should also be highlighted, the Scottish giants have collected 22 points from their last eight outings – a run that stems back to October 5th. Two sides who find themselves battling it out at opposite ends of the Premiership standings, we are backing what could be an enjoyable away win for Clemont’s high-flying squad.
