Aberdeen v Ross County Betting Tips And Predictions
Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership
Date: 15th October 2016
Ross County couldn't have met Aberdeen at a worse time.
The Dons went into the international break on the back of four wins on the spin. Their most recent win was a 0-4 hammering of Kilmarnock in Ayrshire. Although Killie contributed to that one somewhat, themselves.
Regardless of that Aberdeen are exhibiting some of their best form again. Only Celtic have beaten them domestically this season and in total they have lost just twice in fourteen games.
Meanwhile The Staggies are going through something of a crisis. They have scored just once in their last five games. Matters have been made worse, much worse, by the injury to Liam Boyce last time out.
Boyce has scored six of County's nine league goals this season. Consequently they do look likely to struggle. That's also without Alex Schalk available to replace him. Craig Curran is another looking doubtful. Just who exactly plays up front is anyone's guess.
As a result it's hard to see where their goals are going to come from. Although they escaped from Ibrox and Tynecastle with points after 0-0 draws so all is not lost.
They will certainly be a more organised defensive unit than Kilmarnock. Hence the game won't be anywhere near as easy to win for the home side. In fact Aberdeen will have their work cut out to break them down.
The Dons on current form should do enough but it will be a close run thing and goals are likely to be at a premium.
