In a sentence: Second from bottom Partick Thistle welcome third from top Aberdeen to Firhill for this SPL fixture.

Last time: A solitary goal from Adam Rooney on the hour mark was enough for Aberdeen to take all three points at Pittodrie earlier this season.

This time: Thistle are 10/3 to win with Aberdeen at 11/10 and it’s 13/5 for the draw.

You might remember: Aberdeen smashing their hosts for six back in May 2017. Four goals in the opening 30 minutes set the Dons up for a comfortable afternoon.

Partick Thistle welcome Aberdeen to Firhill for this Scottish Premiership encounter

It’s four defeats on the spin for the home side and they may well have welcomed a break from action  last weekend as their game huge game against Ross County was postponed because of the weather.

The league’s only automatic relegation spot remains too close for comfort as only three points separate Thistle from the side they were due to face last week. Five of their six league wins have come at home this season and they are 10/3 to add another here.

Aberdeen are without a win in three games and have seen a small dip in form. Chasing a place in Europe, they cannot afford another slip up and allow fourth-placed Hibernian the opportunity to close the four-point gap that currently stands between the two teams.

It is eight away wins so far this season for Aberdeen and they are 11/10 to make it nine. These sides have only drawn nine games between them all season, so even though it appears to be unlikely on the face of it, the draw is priced at 13/5 in the betting.

Match Summary


Look out for:

Aberdeen to win and both teams to score at 10/3. Partick Thistle have conceded two in each of their last three home league fixtures, while 17 of their 26 league goals have come on home soil.


We fancy:

A goal in both halves at 5/6. Fans that have been visiting Partick Thistle have seen a goal in each half on the last four occasions.


It’s a long shot, but:

A repeat of the 4-3 thriller we saw at Firhill between these two earlier in the season. It is 33/1 to see seven or more goals this time around.
