Aberdeen should be able to advantage of home advantage on Sunday.
Aberdeen v Rangers - Sunday 13:00, Sky Sports 1
Rangers’ return to the top division hasn’t been the happiest as yet as they’ve managed only two wins in their six games and were thumped 5-1 by Celtic, who look set to run away with the division once again. After finishing 2nd last term, Aberdeen have had a decent start to the season as Celtic are the only side to have beaten them, though they have drawn three times and as a result currently sit in 4th.
Rangers’ goalless draw at home to Ross County last time out was their first clean sheet of the season, though they had managed to net in their previous five games. They lost five road games in the Championship last term, with four of those defeats coming in their six trips to top-four sides as they conceded at least twice in five of these.
Aberdeen have a W13-D6-L3 home record since the start of last season, while if we only include games against top-five sides they’re W3-D3-L2 and that together with Rangers’ poor record when travelling to the top Championship sides last term, and their slow start generally, means that we’re surprised to see Aberdeen as marginal outsiders in most places. As a result, we’re backing them with the security of the Draw No Bet.
