On Tuesday, December 20, Aberdeen will host Rangers at the Pittodrie Stadium in Scottish Premiership action. This season, the hosts have done well and are in third place in the standings. Rangers, who are in second place, are 11 points behind them.
They are coming off a home defeat of 1-0 to league leaders and defending champions Celtic, who were won by a goal from Callum McGregor in the 87th minute. After the international break, Rangers began their league campaign with a 3-2 victory over Hibernian at home.
Before Alfredo Morelos scored the game-winning goal in the 62nd minute, they came back from two goals down. The giants from Glasgow are still in second place, but Celtic, who are in the first place and won, are nine points ahead. Despite the defeat, Aberdeen remained in third place, but they must avoid dropping points to stay ahead of sixth-place Livingston.
With 20 goals scored, Aberdeen has won six of their last seven league games at home. They will attempt to maintain their momentum in the face of the visitors. In contrast, the Gers may have trouble as they have lost all three of their previous away games. Nonetheless, they should be able to avoid defeat given their solid record against Aberdeen. Taking into account something similar, a draw could result.
